The Rock-itt : May 2010
After having an almost perfect run in April with our Sea Eagles winning four out of five matches, narrowly going down to the Titans last week at Brookie Oval, we look as though the hunt for the NRL Holy Grail is well and truly on. We now have four wins out of seven appearances under our belts and are presently sitting in fourth place on the NRL ladder board as The Rock-itt goes to print. Our combinations in the halves and centres are starting to click, with young five/eighth, Kieran Foran and half /back, Trent Hodkinson really putting it together, and inside /centre, Jamie Lyon, and outside/centre, Steve Matai attacking and defending in awesome fashion. However, coach Dessy Hasler still has some work to do as we seem to be handing the game back to the opposition when we should be home and hosed. We should really be undefeated at this point in time, although whether it's a loss of concentration at vital moments in the game or the fact that our new guns are still finding their feet is a little hard to say. But Dessy will have to work overtime to remedy the problem if we want to take the 2 points against our next opponents, the quite capable Rabbitohs and following them the in form Dragons who always seem to give us trouble whether it be at home or away. We are through the sorting out part of the season and know what our players are capable of and I can see a winning premiership side in our Sea Eagles. But it is imperative that we stay with the pace and don't lag behind, otherwise it will be catch-up football and haste makes waste, mistakes are more readily made under pressure. The turn up of punters for the games has been great and I think you are all getting the same vibes as me, this could well be another premiership year for the Sea Eagles.
