Here we have the Fulltime result between Parramatta Eels v’s Manly Sea-Eagles and the score was 42 to 12 and the winner was Parramatta Eels,theses guys right now are the real deal,they fought hard for this win,they kept coming and coming.
Their was a great crowd at this ground.
The man of the match was
The play time in first half was 25.59
The play time in the second half was 29.06
So they overall play time were 55 minutes and 5 seconds Mmmmm not a bad game as it is a 80 minute game.
Guys like Peter Stirling,Ray a Price,Michael Cronin,Geoff Toovey theses guys played in the era of 80 minutes of football,with the stoppages in their day they stopped the clock,now they keep the clock going unless something major happens,that is when they stop the clock.
Great win by Parramatta,yes it is round one but they earn’t this win and what a good one to start the season with.
Here we have the Halftime score between Parramatta Eels v’s Manly Sea-Eagle is 16 to 12 to Parramatta Eels.
A couple of interesting stats possession has been 60% to 40% Manly Sea-Eagles this makes it very interesting a team should be at least 6 to 10 points in front so good on the Eels.
Now he is a stat that as I fan I do not like this is a 80 minute game so it does mean that it should be 40 minutes but I did put a stop watch to this and this is how many minutes play their was in this first half which was 25 minutes 59 second in the old days they stopped the clock so as a fan when you goto a game it is a 80 minute game keep your eye out as we will time the second half as well just to see how long this game is.
Here we have a story about Andrew Johns,I could not remember what year this was but my wife said this happened in 2003 in Cairns.
North Queensland Cowboys were playing Newcastle Knights in a trail game in Cairns.
Newcastle Knights did a promotion at Stockland mall,right after that they headed to a function at Brothers Club as their was a function for both teams.
I was waiting outside until they let people into the function,why their was a bar outside of the function room and the Newcastle Knights came in and I saw Andrew Johns and I said to him I have. Couple of things for him to signed,but I could see the look on his face that he just wanted a beer I said I will catch him inside to get some. Items signed.
I was seated at the table I was allocated my seat,I did not know anyone at this table.
Both Paul Bowman of the Cowboys and Andrew Johns were up on stage talking about the upcoming season and the trail game while having dinner.
They both finished what they had to say they walked off the stage and Andrew Johns looked up and saw me sitting at the table he walked up to me and said mate can I sign thoses items for you now,as he told me he needed that beer,not thinking to much about it happy for him to sign my items.
Straight after that the other people at the table all wanted to know who I was as Andrew Johns walked up to me it was the promotions manager at North Queensland Cowboys at the time because I think they must have thought I was important because Andrew Johns walked off the stage and walked up to me,it was all just about timing that’s all.
Here we have the full time score between Brisbane Broncos v’s South Sydney Rabbitohs with the score being 36 to 6 with the South Sydney Rabbitohs winning easily,thus will not be the first team they distory.
The man of the match was Adam Reynolds of the South Sydney Rabbitohs.
Glenn Stewart will be the buy of the season,he has just added something extra for the Rabbits which is scary.
What this game does right now is have the Rabbits at the top of the ladder but it also has Brisbane Broncos running last in the premiership.
Here we have the NRL is back and at half time between Brisbane Broncos v’s South Rabbitohs and the score is 10 to 2 to South Sydney.
The Broncos look tired,as it was a hot day in Brisbane today it looks like they are not handling the heat today.
South Sydney are the team that is throwing the ball around it’s as if they want to become the team to watch.
If it keeps going this way the Broncos maybe in for a long night.
Here we have the World Cup pool result between Australia v’s Afghanistan.
Australia scored off the 50 overs 6/417.
Afghanistan were all out for 142 after just over 37 overs.
Even know on the scoreboard they got well and truly beat I can tell you seeing this game that was not the case,Australia is the number one ranked country in the World and they gave it their best shot so good on them but when one man score 178 runs it was also going to be hard.
Australia are starting to get into this tournament now so it might just been Time that every team take note of them as they are coming to win this World Cup.
Here we have Australia v’s Afghanistan World Cup pool game.
In this game Australia Batted first no surprise in this score,but the surprise was that Afghanistan kept trying until their 50 overs were done.
Australia after their 50 overs they scored 6/417 this is a new record for the most runs scored in a World Cup match.
Afghanistan yes have had a lot of runs scored again them but they were brave in fighting until the last ball in the innings,one great thing about this is that they did take 6 wickets good on them.
Australia’s score card is as followed.
DA Warner c: Nabi b: Zadran 178 runs
AJ Finch c: Mangal b: Zadran 4 runs
SPD Smith c: Zadran b: Zadran 95 runs
GJ Maxwell c: Nabi b: Zadran 88 runs
JP Faulkner b: Hassan 7 runs
MR Marsh c: Zadran b: Mangal 8 runs
BJ Haddin not out 20 runs
This is great great amount of runs by Dave Warner,Steve Smith and Glenn Maxwell.
I do hope that Afghanistan at least can put up a good fight when batting.
