Eels/Wallabies/Swans. 2 outta 3 is ok.
Saturday night was a sports lovers delight.
You had the big test, Wallabies v England.
You had Parramatta v Penrith (on Fox that I now have. Woo Hoo)
You had the Swans v Collingwood.
So, all three major football codes were represented. Ok, so the Parra v Panthers game may not have been too big a deal, but it's my team in a local derby, so I was excited.
As it turned out, i got 2 out of 3 of the teams I was going for through, but the one I really wanted, The Eels, went down in a plucky display against the reigning premiers.
The Wallabies easily disposed of a desolute and at times pathetic England side (int he 2nd half at least), whilst in the probably the most exciting of the 3 games, the Swans Michael O'Loughlin kicked 2 goals in near the end of the final quarter to help his team edge past the Pies.
But my point is. There is nothing better than having 3 big games of Footy on one cold winters night.
Just wish that my damn Eels would have won!!
