IT?S Saturday afternoon and the rain has been coming down for most of the day. Cold and wet, it?s not a particularly inviting night but I hold my head up and head off to the stadium. No ordinary stadium mind you, I was off to the home of the Eels and unfortunately for the past two years the home of some very ordinary results. While generally confident of winning, the thought of facing up to the rampant competition leaders in the Sydney Roosters was not exactly my idea of a great Saturday night.
WATCHING from the sideline your heart thumps loudly as your eyes scan the boys in their jerseys that are seconds from running out onto the field. You spot him and there your eyes stay focused.
