Saturday the 7th of April, I was roped in by my mum to go to the Titans footy game against the Roosters at Skilled Park.

Mum is a some-what dedicated fan, who received an Easter egg in a mug from us for Easter, some slippers from my sister for Christmas and a clock for last year's birthday, but she isn't a regular face in the home crowd. I was not alone when accepting my mum's request and 12 family and friends ended up in the blue and yellow seats behind the goal post. Although the cheapest seats available these are not average seats and a great deal can been seen from the 15th row up. You can always keep an eye on the big screens to catch relays.

We caught the free train from the Varsity station and were among the almost 12 000 people at the stadium, falling rather short of its 27 400 capacity. However the lines for food and drinks were shorter than last season.

There were some touch and go moments but the Titans did fall short of a victory with 12 points to the South Sydney's 18. At the end some Titans players were more than obliging when asked to sign merchandise for fans and pose for photos. We were lucky enough to get some close ups of the hunky William Zillerman.

The atmosphere at a home game is something that can't be beaten and even though you don't get any commentary or close ups, it's what the NRL is all about to my family. It isn't about winning; it's about putting on a good show and spending time with each other.
