One of the best matches ever

Post by Bismark » Sun 12 Sep, 2010 12:36 pm

Ok, so I've has over 12 hours and a good night sleep to calm down, get my emotions back into a functioning order, and am trying to look at this game objectively.

It had fights, a variety of missed opportunities, some individual brilliance, field goals galore, charge downs, injuries, courage, controversy, a very important scrum (very rare these days), golden point and probably the biggest hit you'll ever see.

I'm going to say this is probably the best match I've been to live. It had amazing atmosphere, a great feeling to the entire contest.

Does anyone agree that this may be one of the best finals game, if not one of the great matches in general, of all time?

I think it is the best finals game I've seen since Parra-Dogs in 1998.

Will take a long time to get over this loss...

We seem to always loose those 'best matches ever', of coarse thats if you exclude 05 matches.

nothing beats us beating st.george illawarra in 2005 - but i hate losing in the best games ever - it sucks detrimentally and is psychologically scarring - no - i can live without it.

The Parra match last year still cuts me, but this is arguable the best game Tigers have been part of.

The best game ever? Would've been if Tiger won, but aah well, it was close to it :D :D :D

There was a SOO game during the super league wars that was every bit as absorbing, the parra /dogs match was special as well.

Still like the dragons win in 05 more but that last night was a very very special game.

Dragons semi was better as a Tiges supporter but if I can pretend I'm a neutral for a minute as a pure game of rugby league I can;t think of any better than last nights game

I think the Dragons game, to us at Tigers fans, will always be our greatest victory. But to the neutral fan, I don't know if it was "great". It wasn't anything particularly special if you didn't care about either team.

Last night was undeniably amazing.

The 2005 Dragons semi is special to us.

The 2010 Roosters qualifying final will be remembered by every fan who watched it. There haven't been too many more impressive games in my opinion. As said before the game had everything, bar a Tigers win.
