The Rock-itt : August 2011
anyone is out there, get our defence impregnable and our concentration set for eighty minutes and we can do it this year. Who wants to be an also ran when you can be the champion? I thought I had written enough for this issue as we were going to print and I wanted to show as much of Matt Harris’s great action shots as possible, but last night Friday July 29th , I sat down at home to watch the Sea Eagles take on Tigers at Bluetongue Stadium. I watched with much joy as our boys ran in back to back tries in the first half with Jamie Lyon converting both. But after the break as expected, the little genius, Benji Marshall started weaving his magic, rallying his troops and setting up two tries. Another was scored by Tigers who by this time were on fire edged us out by 14 points to twelve. Although the Sea Eagles played good football right throughout the game, the brilliance of Benji and the urgency to stay in the eight was of a greater need and made the Tigers almost unstoppable as the gam e went into the final stages. But it’s not panic time for the Sea Eagles. W e are in a good position on the ladder thanks to the hard work we have put in all season and there will be more teams like Tigers to deal with before the finals arrive on the doorstep. From here on in it’s just a matter of staying focused, making sure our defence is rock solid, and taking the opportunities when they present themselves.W e have the skills and the fire power to stay up near the top and if we can weather the Storm when we meet them we will be okay. Get to as many of the Sea Eagles games as you can to give them your support. If we all pull together we will all be there together when the ‘Fat Lady’ sings in October. Don’t worry too much about Friday night’s loss to the Tigers as it is better to have the loss now than further down the track when it really counts. The Sea Eagles will get together during the week to prepare for their next clash which is against the Roosters at Brookie Oval. I don’t know about you, but I can’t wait. Now enjoy these marvellous photos by Sea Eagle photographer, Matty Harris. See you at the game...Paddy.
