    Sorry. Woeful showing. We got away with the 2 pts. DCE's break resulting in Brett's try was the standout highlight of the whole affair.

    Yes, but consider this. We were canned 5-1 in the penalties in the first half. We gifted them their first try; that will not happen again this year. And Parra scored their second try because Hoppa was injured.
    We got serious in the second half, and did just enough to win.
    Two points: that's all that matters.

    So true, great we got the 2 points but a woeful performance, hopefully next week against Bulldogs we play a whole lot better. Gotta perserve our unbeaten Brookvale record for this year too!!!

    We didn't get serious at all. They gifted us 2 tries in the 2nd half and we should not have won at all. We finished the last 10 mins as disgracefully as we started.

    Spot on The Who. Pens killed us in the first half. Shocker attitude and multiple errors didn't help either.

    We were handed two tries, thanks Jarryd and Hicksy, we were never serious in attack all match and for about 10% in defence.

    I'd rather we were crap and win, then crap and lose.

    Slow start, caned early in the penalties and low intensity gave Parra a sniff. When we notched it up a cog Parra couldn't cope. Late try to them made it look close.

    I quite enjoyed how Parra thought that they were going to win one. Must have been wetting themselves with excitement at halftime. Only to have it so easily snatched away through their total incompetence. LOL....they deserve it. We played decent footy for about 20 minutes and that was enough to see off this bunch of fools.

    Just get back from the game. Some games, playing crappy opposition makes you play a bit poor. It was one of those games.

    But we still WON!
    Forget this game. If you every played any sport you should know you can't be on your best every week. NRL is a mental challenge.
    We played well against Easts and won = two points.
    We played average against Eels and won = two points

    Bring on the Dogs - then we'll really fire up for the last two matches.

    Crap is the understatement of the century!



    We were that crap that we where the crap that crap eats and craps out.

    This is a game we should have put everyone on notice that we are here to another premiership.

    Have you forgotten what happened in 2008? We played poorly in a couple of matches around this same time - and lost. This time we won.

    Oh, and if you weren't around in 2008 we won 40-nil.

    I was around in 2008 and was at the game when we won 40 - Nil.

    The difference between now and then we looked better in 2008 then we do now winning games.

    To quote Techinical Coach the more I see the more I'm not liking. Our good games are few and far between.

    In 2008 the only contender we didn't beat in the regular season was scum. We looked good in attack and we were consistent.

    This team is a shadow of that team.

    Meh, I'll worry about it if we play crap in the finals (then stop worrying about it the next day because it'll all be over).

    All the worrying in the world won't help guys, just sit back & enjoy the ride. Take pleasure in the small things, like getting to pay out on Parra fans.

    I can't get over all this negative crap. This season has been a bonus, no tipped us to make the 8. Most on here expected us to struggle yet we will finish top 3 or higher. To use a 2005 quote we have overachieved
