Even Eels feel Vatuvei's pain

EVEN the most ferociously carnivorous of Parramatta supporters turned soft last night at the plight of New Zealand Warriors wing Manu Vatuvei.
Vatuvei had a game conceived in hell and executed as a nightmare in front of a TV audience numbering tens of thousands.
He dropped the ball six times, letting in three tries.
Parramatta wing Eric Grothe scored his team's final try after Vatuvei had dropped another bomb in a mid-air scramble.
When Grothe got up, he patted Vatuvei on the back in consolation.
It was both professional and sympathetic at the same time.
Players like to win but they don't like to see an opponent humiliated.
Vatuvei's display was the most painful taunting of a player's shortcomings since South Sydney's Steve Mavin had a horrific 16 minutes at the Sydney Cricket Ground in 1987.
Whatever Vatuvei tried - apart from a 65-metre intercept in the opening minute - fell apart.
His uncertainty infected the whole Warriors side, and it imploded from its own shortcomings.
The biggest question of the night is why Vatuvei was allowed to stay on for so long when his morale had obviously plummeted.
Surprisingly, the Warriors defended better than the score suggests but the self-destruction they inflicted was impossible to overcome.
Parramatta was settled and composed by comparison, with Tim Smith moving the players around the field intelligently with his kicking.
Ahead 12-6 at half-time, Parramatta made all the running in the second half as the Warriors added to their reputation of dropping off the pace in the second 40 minutes of matches.
Parramatta, under coach Michael Hagan, is starting to find the rhythm that could carry it to the semi-finals and even higher.
