It's been well documented that we never start well.

Also, we've played the Warriors in the first round 4 out of the last 7 years.
Why is this so?

Last season it took us 5 rounds to get 2 competition points.
This year it took us 1 round.

Last year it took us until round 13 to get 4 competition points.
How long will it take this year?

I dont think there Eels will win any of there next 4 games, but I also dont think they will be embarrassed.

I do hope they beat the dogs this coming round, big time.

Really? Only if they go back to their 2011/2012 form. But from what I saw on the weekend, being only 1 game, that performance did not happen once in the two years Kearney was at the club, so hopefully they have turned the corner.

I hope you are right, the next 4 games are pretty tough and much better opposition than the Warriors, who suck.

I think Parra can beat the Bulldogs, but I think Round 1 has gone to my head.

Nuh uh, there's no way you're getting favouritism in this one. No way!
Didn't you guys have the highest completion rate this weekend?
Ours was pathetic.

Ergo....Bulldogs will win.

with all that possession we could only score 2 lucky tries from plays that had already broken down... Eels all the way

nice use of "ergo" ;)

2005, 2009, 2011 truly reflect the insignificance of round 1....win, lose or draw

neutral ground and officially an Eels match... we are underdogs for sure

Our 2013 Member's hats have very little gold in them, making them predominately blue and white......Canterbury for the win.
