    I'm sure there will be a few slitting there wrists but there are plenty of positives out of tonight and I'm as confident as ever of making the 8 and still think we can sneak the 4.

    A few things

    Credit to Parra they do look a strong defensive outfit and that will put them amongst it come seasons end but I don't think they have another gear to win the comp (obviously salary cap penalty will probably come into play anyway)

    Tommy T showed he is not Origin ready yet, got showed up a few times by Semi but that will happen

    Was impressed with Lewis Brown, he is really important to our squad with his flexibility

    For all the frothing around here about Api and Walker they are both running halves and agaist and organized defense you need some more guile....will be good to get DCE back

    Fonua-Blake.......looked impressive

      Gutted for the loss but Parra capitalised on some decensive lapses, which do happen. Thought everyone played well.

      Just wasn't our night unfortunately

      We did not defend against kicks well at all

      just need the time to train some set plays / finishing moves. we have zero last tackle options beside the kick and hope with the current formation.

        We had a couple of very near misses with Snake and Lussick missing tries by inches, whereas the Eels scored a couple of crucial tries when the bounce of the ball went their way a bit.

        Overall the Eels were only slightly better, and we have a fair bit more improvement to come. The players are really putting in.

          That was the killer really. And if TT had scored, rather than be run down...well.

          In saying all that, perhaps they needed that loss. It highlighted some areas of concern that with a longer turnaround, the coach should be able to address.

          As for Foran, I really wish someone had spat in his face at the end and said "that one is for Toovey, you contemptible ****." Or words to that effect.

          However that would be rather unsporting.
