Interesting that Fox sports player ratings gave Cleary an 8.5 and Cam Murray a 9.Cleary got it
Yeah, that opening 20 mins was ridiculous. Souths barely had it.Tackled in opposition 20 was 27-5. Souths win if they had an even share.
Yeah that was my basis for going for Souths - guess we'll just have to work harder!Annoying thing is that Sharks and Panthers both joined in 1967, and we are a bit behind on trophies.
But we won the Amco Cup

I thought the ref let Penrith get away with a lot, particularly carrying the Souths back three backwards when they were clearly held.
"A player in possession is tackled when he is held by one or more opposing players in such a manner that he can make no further progress and cannot part with the ball."
"Where opponents do not make a tackle effective in the quickest possible manner but attempt to push, pull or carry the player in possession, it is permissible for colleagues of the tackled player to lend their weight in order to avoid losing ground. Immediately this happens the referee should call “Held”."
Still Souths should have adapted better, and spread the ball earlier.
