    Tahu inspires Eels victory - NRL Premiership - Fox Sports

    Parramatta celebrate Nathan Hindmarsh milestone in style with win over Souths

    April 18, 2010

    Parramatta have used the occasion of Nathan Hindmarsh's record-breaking 266th game to get their season back on track with a 22-8 victory over South Sydney at ANZ Stadium.

    The Eels overcame a woeful first half of their own and an 8-2 deficit at the break to finally find some form in the second 40, reportedly after coach Daniel Anderson left the dressing sheds early to let the players speak among themselves.

    Co-captain Hindmarsh passed Eels great Brett Kenny's record of 265 games for Parramatta.

    Hindmarsh was planning to celebrate, albeit heading out for dinner to his mother Fiona's 60th birthday party with the large contingent of his family among the crowd of 25,152 .

    "I love having him in the team,'' Eels coach Daniel Anderson said of Hindmarsh, who he said would be considered for the co-captaincy with Nathan Cayless again next week.

    "I've coached him when he was a young kid and I am very fortunate to have him now as an old kid.

    "He is the ultimate competitor.''

    Centre Timana Tahu was inspirational, scoring the Eels' first try four minutes after the break and forcing the ball loose in a bone-rattling tackle on Jamie Simpson which led to the second.

    A minute later a lackadaisical Rhys Wesser was beaten to a Daniel Mortimer kick by a flying Luke Burt and Parramatta hit the lead for the first time in the match at 14-8.

    Mortimer sealed the deal with a 70th-minute effort which he had started with a popped pass, the conversion making it 22-8.

    Burt converted all three and also booted two penalty goals in front of 25,152 fans.

    A ludicrous second half sideshow of sin-binnings resulted in Eels co-captain Nathan Cayless being sent to the sidelines for repeated stripping infringements and, two minutes later, Souths centre Beau Champion copping 10 for a high shot.

    The binnings followed repeated lectures from referees Ben Cummins and Gerrard Sutton that had commentators fuming.

    ''(It was) a bit harsh but he squared it up when he sent one of theirs for something they probably didn't need to be sent for,'' Hindmarsh said.

    "It was a bit of a surprise to everyone. I think Souths were a bit surprised as well when it happened.''

    Souths coach John Lang was also mystified.



    "I don't even know what their bloke got sin-binned for to be perfectly honest and ours was for a high tackle,'' he said.

    "I didn't think you could get sin-binned for a high tackle.''

    In an error-strewn first half, the Eels managed a woeful 44 per cent completion rate but Souths' handling wasn't much better and there had been 20 mistakes by the break.

    Two well-executed backline plays in the fourth and 22nd minutes resulted in tries to Souths winger Fetuli Talanoa and centre Colin Best.

    The Eels got within a blade of grass twice in the final two minutes of the half but had to be content with a Burt penalty goal after the siren.

    Souths went into the match minus six first grade forwards after captain Roy Asotasi and Michael Crocker were both ruled out before kick-off.

    Those Eels have got a long way to go to live up to the expectations many had for this season.

    Eels slip past the Cowboys - NRL Premiership - Fox Sports

    Parramatta defeat North Queensland Cowboys 24-18 in NRL at Dairy Farmers

    April 23, 2010

    The return of Johnathan Thurston was not enough for North Queensland Cowboys, the home side falling to a 24-18 NRL defeat to Parramatta at Dairy Farmers Stadium.

    Thought to be one to two weeks away from making his NRL return from a shoulder injury, captain Thurston was a late inclusion and made an immediate impact for North Queensland, setting up a try and kicking three goals.

    His organisational skills helped keep the scores locked at 12-12 at half-time.

    But a Timana Tahu double was enough to lift last year's grand finalists to a tense win, leaving the battered Cowboys languishing near the bottom of the ladder with just two wins from seven starts so far in 2010.

    Krisnan Inu and Ben Smith also scored tries for the Eels and Luke Burt kicked four goals.

    North Queensland's try-scorers were Scott Bolton, Ashley Graham and Willie Tonga.

    Carl Webb could be in doubt for the Cowboys' clash with Melbourne Storm next week after badly spraining his ankle in the first half.

    James Tamou picked up a shoulder injury while Steve Rapira, Gallant and Tonga all received head knocks but were able to play on.

    Cowboys coach Neil Henry said the errors in his outfit's game would need to be addressed in a hurry to stem the run of losses.

    "It was a very sloppy game,'' he said.

    "We needed to take a couple opportunities but I think our first half our completion was around fifty per cent.

    "Unforced errors ... they happened a few times and they rolled in for a few tries.

    "That standard, it's not good enough to win games in this competition.''

    Relieved Parramatta coach Daniel Anderson was happy to take the win, the 2009 grand finalists' first back-to-back victory this season coming after a win over South Sydney last weekend.

    "We were hanging in there but we were scratchy,'' he said.

    "But we were resilient and we got the points, which is good.''
