Pirtek Parramatta Eels Ben Roberts talks to us about playing halfback on Saturday nights match against the Manly Warringah Sea Eagles

We gave ourselves a lot of opportunities but I think we just didnt capitalise which cost us in the end.

Roberts says reflection is important but with a quick turn around to Round 22, it is important to move on.

I think we should just move on, maybe reflect on a bit of it but like I said there were some times there where we could have scored some points, we gave ourselves the opportunities but our executions probably let us down.

Stepping in for Luke Kelly who was out with a hamstring injury, Roberts says he enjoyed playing half back.

Obviously I had a bit more work on my behalf but I enjoyed it and I think Luke Kelly might be back this week so its always good to have him there to control the ship.

Going into Round 22, Roberts talks about taking on the Wests Tigers:

Theyre going through a bit of a rough patch as well. I think its going to be a good game.

I think if we can get a good crowd there I think it will be a good bonus for us and probably benefit us more. Otherwise you know its going to come down to whoever wants it most. Were going to go back to the drawing board and come up with a good game plan to win.
