The Parramatta Eels missed their Golden Opportunity... and I guess so did Souths, in making 2010 their year. Both teams will miss the finals for 2010, yet promised so much. The final chance for Parra, was snuffed out by a committed Souths Sydney side, hell-bent on denying the Parramatta side another shot at the fairytale. At the end of the day, a 24-16 win to Souths, four tries to three, doesn't seem comprehensive, yet Souths led 24-6 with ten minutes left and the game was over. Parra came home strong, but really had no chance to win.
