When Parra went for the try instead of the 2...

Post by fergiefurr » Tue 07 Apr, 2015 8:07 pm

Was anyone else relieved? They had been parked on our line most of the half and never looked like scoring (apar from the dive from dummy half), I was very confident we were going to hold them out again.

This is a feeling I don't think I've ever had as a wests tigers fan, in the past I would have been praying that they'd have taken the 2, knowing that we would have given in eventually. It's a huge credit to Taylor how quickly he has turned this around. After 5 rounds we have the second best defence. What a turn around!

Stupid on field decision, and against the message sent by the coach.

Is that right? That Brad Arthur doesnt look like the sort of bloke you wanna go against. Good luck to Mannah this week,
I was hoping theyd take the 2, I'm still nervous about our defnse

Yeah I think that was a massive game changer when just before half time they could of gone in the sheds 8-0 up as appose to 6-4 up.
The game was such an arm wrestle that wasn't decided till the last 7 minutes I reckon
Eels 8-0 up might have just gotten them home maybe?
It depends who you talk to on this Forum, if you are Optimistic? it's because your delusional and need a reality check. If you are Pessimistic? Your accused of being a negative Nancy and to go and follow another Club.

I think they thought with the amount of pill they had they should've been up by more than one try. Personally, I would have taken the two.

It's a totally different second half 8-0 compared to 6-4. Down 2 tries we have to chase points. We can't calmly break the game down like we did.

Awesome work and a credit to our D

Yes very relieved! In hindsight it was a bad decision on their part, but you're right, in previous years our goal line defence would've crumbled. It's a great feeling knowing that our line won't crack so easily now and how good was it to be the team scoring right on half time for once instead of conceding it :mrgreen:

I think they were looking for the "coaches call" from the trainer but couldn't hear it because the Parra chant went up. As time was ticking They decided to make there own call.

It's what we should've probably done just before the half in the Doggies game..

I was shocked when they went for the try instead of the simple penalty, and VERY relieved when they lost it shortly afterwards.

I told the Mrs and the son they lost the game right there

They go in at 8-0 and I reckon we would of panicked and lost that game

Anytime you get a chance to lead by more than one try with a high percentage play you take it . Period , End of story
