Re: NRL Nines

I wasn't impressed either - that being said it was a weird side they picked. Munster looked pretty though - his agility is still there, looks energetic and fast. I didn't mind Johns either. I think he might need to put on a few kilograms though. Everyone else was fairly average or poor. Didn't like ...

Re: Official thread and signing news

I don’t mind this signing at all. Brenko Lee was earmarked a few years ago as a potential origin player and was in the developing Maroons team.

He was great filling in a few spots in the backline for the Raiders in 2016 too.

If he tightens up his defence he could be very, very good.

Re: Official thread and signing news

Fox Sports is reporting the club still has six empty roster spots for this year - 23 filled out of 29.

Does anyone know who the Storm are potentially bringing in? Wouldn’t mind another halfback and a few backs.

I think we should go after braidon burns now latrell has signed with souths.
This. He'd be a fantastic signing to cover the vacant centre spot. Unfortunately, I believe Mitchell will play fullback with Graham and Burns in the centres.

Re: Official thread and signing news

Not sure signing Jacks is that bad. Surely he’s as cover and not to start week in, week out.

Also, how has Cooper Johns looked this year along with the club’s other QLD Cup halves?

Re: Storm palyers in Australia Rep Teams

Kind of hoping Munster takes time off to work on that shoulder.

With Keary out, Munster will likely start at five-eighth with Wighton to play in the centres.

Re: PRELIMINARY FINAL - Roosters vs Storm

Can anyone tell me how Conk is being received, maybe even feted, up in Sydney town? I watched the pre-game and it was all blah blah fairy tale crap for Cronk, now tell me what makes him so different to Cameron Smith (apart from two extra premierships)? If he was still in Melbourne would he have cop...

Re: NSW Media Campaign against Smith and Storm

Apparently Bellamy’s really down at the moment too. I think the Smith comments have only exacerbated things - particularly given Bellamy’s comments ahead of the Roosters game. I think this season has really done a number on our guys - winning that many games any playing a such a high intensity befor...

Re: Half Back for 2020

I love Hughes but he’s clearly not a halfback. He’s a fullback or a utility. Badly need to use the off-season to address this and develop or find a halfback with a decent kicking game. I’m going to get slammed for saying this but I also think Munster needs to move out of five-eighth and cover the ot...

Re: PRELIMINARY FINAL - Roosters vs Storm

Honestly, I hate to say it, but if Bellamy selects Chambers on the wing the Storm are seriously screwed. He absolutely has to play a specialist winger out there to defend against either Morris or Tupou. Interestingly, Hutchison is still in the Roosters squad. Keary’s carrying a bit of an injury so t...

Re: QUALIFYING FINAL - Storm vs Raiders

We deserved to lose. Refs gave us nothing, and there was no way on God's green earth that Suli was in touch, but we were crap. I hate to be negative, I really do. But time to start planning for 2020. This team can't beat last night's Roosters. I agree. I’m also extremely upset. That was an awful wa...

Re: Round 25 - Storm vs Cowboys

Weird game. Storm seemed to dominate, not do much but win easily. Two of the Cowboys’ three tries were really out of nothing. The scoreline really didn’t reflect the contest but I thought the Cowboys actually played quite well asides from a few horrific penalties they gave away. Only missed 18 tackl...

Re: Justin Olam

How much has this guy improved? Absolutely killing it since breaking back in to first grade. His hard running - particularly that outside-in line - is just brutal. On top of that, his defence has been strong. Decision making (which to be honest, was a concern) has been excellent and his contact, fi...

Just saw vision of Munster in change rooms - Looks fine to me :)
I think he might have just aggravated an existing injury. He had tape on his shoulder he was taking off.
