Re: Round 12 - Storm vs Knights

Sunday 2nd August 4:05pm Sunshine Coast Stadium, Sunshine Coast 2nd vs 6th. The Knights are coming off a bad loss to the Bulldogs. The Knights suffered two bad injuries in that game with Andrew McCollough and Conor Watson subsequently ruled out for the season. McCollough ripped his hamstring off th...

Re: Round 11 - Broncos vs Storm

Jahrome Hughes has nine try assists this season despite missing two games. He's only one behind Luke Keary and equal third.

In all of last year, he had 12 try assists.

Surely this is a sign he's improving as a halfback.

Re: Round 9 - Raider vs Storm

sticky sooky Stuart having a whinge about the sin bin. ::) ::) ::) And that's fair enough. It wasn't worth a sin-bin. It did deserve a penalty but honestly that would have been enough - he impeded Fox, but I don't think it was deliberate and calculated. On the other hand, they did score a try off a...

Re: Round 8 - Storm vs Roosters

One more thing - massive credit to Ryan Papenhuyzen for calling for the ball to take a shot at field goal. Heaps of pressure on him to belt it over and he's only 30 games in to his career. Apparently after he kicked it he told Smith from the kick-off he wanted the ball. That's exactly the kind of pl...

Re: Round 8 - Storm vs Roosters

Man, that was tough to handle.

What. About. Our. Club.

Forced interstate, star playmaker out injured, facing the defending premiers who looked unbeatable but they never shied away.

God, I love this team.

He's absolutely dreadful. Full of athletic ability and skill but just has zero game sense at all.

Re: Round 8 - Storm vs Roosters

Shouldn't be trailing at half-time. Getting a bit tired of these desperate off-loads and panic passes - they're never going to work.

Re: Round 8 - Storm vs Roosters

So, word is Smith will play in the halves tonight. No idea who partners him but best guess is it'll be Hughes.

Re: Round 8 - Storm vs Roosters

I can't remember the last time the Storm were such outsiders in betting odds. Anyway, a win tonight would be phenomenal but I'll settle for running these guys close and showing a bit of consistency in attack and defence. The Storm pack should be able to match the Roosters I feel and I'm interested i...

Re: Rd 7 vs Warriors

Fox commentators are riding the Warriors wank-fest so hard. Yeah the score is against the run of play, but possession means bugger all if you can't capitalise on it. Anyone can attack all day but it takes a serious team to defend as we have been. How about the Herbert no try? “That’s very 50/50.” H...

Re: Rd 7 vs Warriors

Okay, so there is absolutely no way in the world Paul Momirovski can get dropped next week.

Defensively he’s excellent and he just seems so composed in attack. He’s brilliant.

Re: Round 4 vs Rabbitohs

Whoah. Brandon Smith is starting... At prop.

But it's likely he'll roam and play at back-row/lock.

Brenko Lee starts with Seve dropped and Chris Lewis will make his debut from the bench.

Re: Round 4 vs Rabbitohs

Anyone else feel that Bellamy might pull a fast one and change the halves here by moving Jacks to start at halfback? Could potentially mean Hughes moves back to fullback allowing Papenhuyzen to do what he did last year albeit now under the new rules. I'd like to think we give Lee a go here too. He's...

Re: Round 3 - Storm vs Raiders

If you do that, where to you put Dale? He is one of our best players most weeks and on Saturday night was one of the only players who played with any pride for the jersey. Hughes hasn't done anything much right or wrong since he was put into the halves last year. It is not working, move on. You mov...

Re: Round 3 - Storm vs Raiders

I love Drinkwater and still think he should be on the team but he has is own issues adapting to playing a different position. People in here would've killed him for his poor passing and average defence the other night. Hughes hasn't done a lot wrong. We do miss having a natural ball player/leader i...
