Sticky says it was a tough blow, but not for the lack of effort from Eels players.
"There was a lot of effort in the first half. They tried their hearts out but they weren't good enough," he said.
"The outclassed us, they outplayed us and were too good for us."
Hayne says it was hard playing against a Roosters team playing great footy.
"It was definitely rough out there," he said.
"Especially those little errors that lead to big things. They got the momentum and ran away."
