Re: Round 14 - Roosters vs Storm

Yeah, well said yourhero - the only thing that I would add to that assessment is that we also had to travel interstate to play the Rorters with only a 5-day turnaround - they had a full 7 days and played at home after limited travel the week before (well, since 9th July actually)! It was typically p...

Re: Official thread and signing news

Tom Eisenhuth just signed a new 2 year deal till 22 Solid player. A proper footballer. Can see why CB plays him whenever possible. I'd be happy to see Craig let him settle into centre. Really? I like him as a back-rower/interchange player, but I thought he was very average last week at centre. I'll...

Re: Round 13 - Storm vs Bulldogs

As critical of Suli that I usually am, I can't really blame him for coming in off his wing today - he is getting absolutely no help from defenders sliding out his way so he is being left to defend about 4 or 5 players at times. At least if they're going to score he's keeping them out near the sideli...

Re: Round 12 - Storm vs Knights

I story a small story in the Daily Telegraph on the weekend, that said Storm we working privately on team options to have Smith x 2 and Grant in the side next year. It said Grant to 9, B Smith to 13, Dale to the front/second row and C Smith to 7. I don't know what happens to Hughes. I also don't kn...

Re: Round 12 - Storm vs Knights

Fox Sports early diagnosis (via Andrew Voss): Cam Smith's career is over after suffering a severe knee injury. :roll:

Re: Round 11 - Broncos vs Storm

I wasn't too concerned about the Broncos' enthusiasm early in the game as I figured it would fizzle out and we'd run over the top of them, but our errors and the weather/conditions have evened up the game massively.

Re: Round 11 - Broncos vs Storm

Once again Paps nowhere to be found in defense.

But NAS, FFS - get your head in the game or get Brandon out there!

Re: Round 10 - Storm vs Titans

Titans players locking in the arm of our players to gain a set restart seems to be the only game plan they have, and the ref is too stupid to realise. Can someone please tell Brenko that we should be able to beat the Titans without the unnecessary strips... :roll: Oh, and that's the first time in my...

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

It is FANTASTIC that we won on the back of a penalty awarded by Ashley Klown, AND apparently after he missed a Storm knock on. Sweet ! I've seen replays of that apparent knock-on from Brandon before the Paps field goal, and I'm not convinced it was anyway - Brandon uses two hands to play the ball a...

Re: Round 8 - Storm vs Roosters

Thank you Paps. Wow. :cheers: And another great game from Hughes - he's been a different player since coming back from his broken hand! Eisenhuth was also impressive with his increased minutes, and Brandon was Brandon. :-D Overall, what a noticeable lift in intensity from us for the most part, but m...
