I think the Tigers would play Grant ahead of Reynolds and Walters.
Agreed

Apparently the Grant trade is back on the table:

Re: Official thread and signing news

Anyone thinking that we will retain both Brandon and Harry past 2021 is delusional, regardless of what Smithy does. I tend to agree with that. Good hookers are at a premium at the moment and there's no chance we would be able to have 2 NRL quality 9s on the books moving forward with other clubs wil...

When was the last time we won two trials in pre-season? Not sure what to take away from that... Probably the same thing we take away each year, not a whole lot.
Surely it means we can expect some new silverware for the cabinet? :lol: :lol: :lol:

Re: Half Back for 2020

I thought Hughes looked good in the Warriors trial. Excited to see him play halfback this year with a pre-season under his belt in the position. I have so much more confidence in his HB play than I did Croft... I feel like there was just some underlying expectation that Croft would work out and eve...

Re: Official thread and signing news

SMH (Adrian Proszenko) With the swap deal falling through, Harry Grant is now seeking a release. There are quotes from Harry in the article so I don’t doubt it’s credibility. He can seek a release all he wants but as long as he's useful the club should keep him on the books. He will probably get so...

Re: Curtis Scott

So far NAS is the only one to be punished for anything :-\ The Fafita incident is really puzzling to me. It seems to be quite similar to NAS except he is charged with an offence. I guess the NRL thinks that NAS' incident was a bigger hit to the game's reputation because it was captured on video. Th...

Re: Official thread and signing news

So what happens if both hookers get injured in the season? Who is next in line??? Dumb move. Disagree. I'd rather have the chance to get Grant back after 12 months than lose him permanently because he's disgruntled with the pecking order or lack of first grade opportunities with us. Besides, Grant ...

I think a lot of these 'reporters' post stuff about salaries etc that are complete heresay based on what one of their 'contacts' inside the club have let on.

Smith, Slater and Bellamy are all one club men and automatically associated with the Storm. If you include Cronk an argument could be made for Inglis...
Inglis wasn't part of our 2012 and 2017 premiership teams so I don't think he's in the same category.

Re: Smith and Slater Statue

I'm very torn on this. Smith > Slater > Cronk in terms of status as all-time rankings for their positions But I don't know if the club would have had such success without the three of them together. All our GF victories (excl 1999) have had the three of them feature quite prominently. They were cons...

Re: Official thread and signing news

Meh I don't know what all your fuss is about. It's normal for clubs in salary cap scenarios to go through stages of rebuilding. We've had it good for so long and now we're just experiencing the downturn that's to be expected in a salary cap economy. Can't really see how the club has 'mismanaged' a s...
