Wicks: We are our own worst enemy

Dyldam Parramatta Eels forward Danny Wicks has reflected on the Blue and Gold’s 38-16 defeat at Pirtek Stadium against the Gold Coast Titans, saying that the Eels could only blame themselves.

“We are our own worst enemy,” said wicks.

“We have potential, and when we want to play we can play its just hard to put a finger on it. But it’s Round 6 and there’s still a long way to go.”

“It wasn’t our best performance by a long way so knowing we have so much to improve on. It’s just the 1 percenters, we are killing ourselves.”

Wicks scored his first try in the NRL since Round 10, 2009, and whilst it should be a memorable moment for the front-rower, it left a sour taste in his mouth knowing that the Eels were disappointing in front of the Blue and Gold.

“We were our own worst enemy. We shot ourselves in the foot too many times and you can’t do it, you can’t get away with it.”

“Every week you have to be on your game and if we turn up like we did today, the fans don’t deserve it.”

“We will get better.”
