Re: Round 2 - Sharks vs Storm

Good opening fortnight considering we played two slug fests against two sides that always bring their best (or worst) I'm really liking that Hughes has found his radar with Suli and really just growing as a halfback and playmaker. Jesse, Tui, NAS, Dale and Tino really stood up in the middles in that...

Who got the first try?
Olam IIRC off a grubber. He managed to just get it in time.

Re: Round 1 Predicted Lineups

I’m not sold on Tino. Really hasn’t impressed me in any top grade games. If he came without the hype I’d probably say he’s got big potential though lol

Re: Official thread and signing news

Well looks like Tino is gone. Meninga probably got in his ear at the Prime Ministers XIII.

Gold Coast and young men just has career suicide written all over it.

Re: Official thread and signing news

Now apparently Tino has signed a $670k for four years deal with the Warriors. Confirmation yet to come on if it’s immediately or after next season.

What the bloody hell is going on!

I’m not a big fan of him so far but I know everyone else it so how did we let this happen!

Re: Suli

All I know is when Suli wasn’t there, we missed him. He was really good in his last few performances. Watching the Rugby World Cup there’s been a huge shift in the way teams attack and attacking kicks have become a big part of team play. Australia struggled in this area although Marika was their bes...

Re: Alleged player incident

Apparently Vunivalu was king hit in an unprovoked attack. The club owner has come out in defense of Nelson and handed CCTV footage to give people the full story.
I know it may be wrong but I’d find it very difficult to walk away.

Re: Alleged player incident

Just saw vision of one of our boys overseas. Not the worst but will be in some trouble.

Re: PRELIMINARY FINAL - Roosters vs Storm

Munster just seems to get shut down in these big games. The kicking game was poor, too many 7 tackle sets given away. Kaufusi was a big loss, really could have done with Stimson on the bench. I thought the boys tried really hard though. A little lack of creativity in attack and we were too deep and ...

Re: PRELIMINARY FINAL - Roosters vs Storm

Sandor does have the leaping touchdown but just about everywhere else I’d pick Chambers.

Re: SEMI FINAL - Storm vs Eels

Very impressed with Olam in defense. He’s handled every centre he’s faced including Blake and Leilua the last couple weeks. I don’t think I’ve seen anyone dominate them defensively like Olam has.

Re: QUALIFYING FINAL - Storm vs Raiders

Munster, Olam and JAC were all backing off while Chambers and Suli were rushing. Backing off Leilua isn’t exactly a good idea but we handled him pretty well apart from a couple crucial moments.

The touchy is a dipshit but we should have had the game wrapped up much earlier.

Re: QUALIFYING FINAL - Storm vs Raiders

So Ricky Stuart is starting Papali’i on the bench. Obviously likes his chances up against our bench players.

Re: QUALIFYING FINAL - Storm vs Raiders

Honestly I’d rather Canberra in week 1 than week 3. Plus I just don’t think they’re that good.
