Some of the attack looks tired also. Maika Sivo into space and he's too knackered to really go for it.

That being said, they've been in lockdown for a while, so fitness will no doubt be at a lower level than usual.

Great start though.

I think he was trying to set up his Winger before he passed to the Broncos player

Talent is secondary to whether players are confident.

The virtual noise is being really well done for this.

I agree. It could have been annoying (ala canned laughter on sitcoms) but it is subtle enough to be effective.

I must admit, the lack of a crowd has not effected this too much as a spectacle.

The fake stadium music and crowd noise is strange, yet it works.

They even had a fool yell out during the moment of silence..

I could have very much disliked this, but to be honest, even though I know it’s fake, I understand what they are trying to achieve here and it actually increases my viewing pleasure.

Eels were within drop-goal range about 40-45 minute out in those last 20 seconds, I was expecting them to go for it.  7 points ahead is obviously more comfortable than 6.

btw:  I am a fan of the crowd noise!  I was watching Bundesliga the other day, and despite being good quality football, it felt so wrong watching in total silence.

It is relatively quiet, but just loud enough to take away the dead silent background atmosphere we'd have got otherwise.

Whoever #17 for Broncos is there, should be lynched for such poor urgency to get under the ball before the grounding

That'll be Herbie, then.
