Friday night was an easy watch as one of my former teams the Bird Gang advanced to the preliminary finals after drubbing Ice’s Chooks.
And I knew it wasn’t going to be as easy of a watch on Saturday night, but I was quietly confident the club where the Skip debuted could also get the job done.
Unfortunately they fell just short, but I don’t think a genuine fan of the club could be disappointed with the efforts of the blue & gold.
For me, it was the best performance from Parramatta in a long time.
Ironically better than the two Melbourne Storm wins this year, which might be tough to understand.
The reasons I say that is because they left it all out on the field.
So many things went against Parra in the game.
Granted a few self inflicted, but a few questionable stoppages they couldn’t control also played a part.
But they didn’t let any of those decisions affect them and literally fought to the final siren.
Call me old school but for me that was one of the best games I’ve watched in a minute.
Now Penrith have to back it up against Melbourne.
How good have these finals been so far?!
