Golden Point is so fucking stupid but after we seemingly lost about 23 games on it last year, this felt good.
Fox commentary was doing my head in a bit because they were assessing the game based solely on the score (at 18-6 to Penrith). Yeah, that’s the only thing that counts but we’d won two games all season and I’m 75% resigned to the Wooden Spoon so it frustrated me that they didn’t comment on how Parra were trying something different; offloading for fun, chip-n-chase kicking etc. It was refreshing to see a bit of flair and improvisation.
"It’s only Penrith" doesn’t count because, well, have you seen the Eels play this year?
Oh and Hindmarsh was monumental. Made about 3943 tackles and 234 offloads. Should be playing Origin 3. Would probably beat Queensland on his own.
