Despite scoring his first Premiership try for the Dyldam Parramatta Eels on Saturday, five-eighth Corey Norman says he’s more pleased with the defensive effort his teammates put together to keep the St George Illawarra Dragons to a 36-0 scoreline.
While he credits a little bit of luck with getting his first try in Blue and Gold colours, Norman says the defensive effort was all down to hard work.
“It was good to get a try in the new colours, and going 80 or 90 [metres] was even better,” Norman said.
“Lucky I had a couple of front rowers chasing me, that’s all!”
“We worked on our defence the last couple of weeks, and it’s good that we held them to nil. It just shows the confidence in the boys and what we’ve got here at the club.”
“All the boys emptied the tanks out today.”
