He did an admirable job but he just didn't have the body mass to bend the defensive line and get the set starts rolling; he was continually getting rag-dolled and pushed back in tackles all night.
Lattrell would 100% have made a difference. For one: he's a massive unit, his sheer size would've made a big difference bringing the ball back which is ultimately where Souths lost the game.
I'm not sure. I probably don't know enough about league these days.(after living in the US for 20 years) but it seemed to me the Souths forwards consistently didn't failed to make enough yards in the first couple of tackles and the defenders didn't put enough pressure on Cleary's kicking. As a result, Penrith dominated field position. If you change that, I'd say you will probably change the result. Latrell is amazing, but that change in tackling pressure would have been enough evwn without him, IMO.

Your team wins the GF. But under the current circumstances, so what?

I'm not from there, I don't know anyone who's into RL irl. I go to work the next day, everyone's miserable. No one knows I like RL, let alone that I go for Penrith.

I remember last year, I was getting slowly worked up throughout the weekend in the build up to the Panthers winning the GF. This year it was a momentary distraction.

It's similar for me and NFL. Have no one IRL to share it with, except the folk on the bigfooty board, reddit. But i have NRL to share living in NSW.
