Re: Crowd Lockouts

The only really good thing about the draw is the fact the Storm get a heap of FTA games.

In fact, only Brisbane has more FTA time slots this year.

Re: Round 3 - Storm vs Raiders

14. Brandon Smith, 15. Tino Fa'asuamaleaui, 16. Nelson Asofa-Solomona, 17. Christian Welch.

You'd have an incredibly hard time convincing me that's not the best bench in the competition.

Re: WTF was JAC thinking ???

It’s super common. The way it is supposed to work - the journo gets wind of something and then asks the player directly so they have the opportunity to put forward their version of events. If not the player, they will ask the agent. RL reporters aren’t renowned for their professionalism or ability ...

Re: Round 2 - Sharks vs Storm

Well, that was awful to watch. Basically nearly lost what was left of my sanity watching that - so many stupid mistakes.

That being said - I think Jesse Bromwich is back. That was easily his best game in months. He was awesome.

Re: Round 1 - Sea Eagles vs Storm

Forwards largely played well although Jesse Bromwich coughed up a few easy balls. All in all it was an extremely clunky performance but the pack muscled up and grinded Manly down. The key to it really was when the Sea Eagles had the ascendancy going up to half-time but opted to take two penalty goal...

Re: Trial Games 2020

Not sure this is the right place for it but anyhow...

Brandon Smith basically just singlehandedly destroyed the Indigenous All Stars.

He had four line breaks, five tackle breaks, two tries and ran for 175 metres.

He’s an absolute monster.

Re: Trial Games 2020

Anyone watching? It's on Fox for those interested. Coming up to half-time at the moment. Lee just stepped past a couple of players from inside his own half on recovering a kick, accelerated and took off. Johns backed up on the inside and he sent him over under the bar for a 14-12 lead. Before that O...

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...
