Thanks Lucas. Interesting that Falcons , with only 3 Storm players, won easily , whilst Tigers, with 7 Storm players, lost.

Marion Seve did not play. He missed two weeks ago, apparently with a niggle from the International, then played last week, and missed again this week. Anyone know what is going on there?

I see Kata and an opponent both got a sin bin. Fighting ? Does he miss next week as a consequence ?

Huge congrats to Jordan Lieu

Kata Punched the jets player ...more of an open handed slap really but wouldn’t be surprised if he got suspended

Sandor Earl did get charged, I assume given he is in first grade they will take early plea to reduce charge to 75 points and enable him to play Titans.

Aaron Pene also got charged and will miss 1 week with an early plea or whether he fights it and loses.

I saw Sandors tackle it wasn’t that bad but since they are cracking down on it I guess it was worth a report

In PNG, the Hunters and Easts Tigers had a 38-all draw. According to QRL website only two Storm players played - Isaac Lumelume and Kelma Tuilagi. Kelma scored a try.

Harry Grant is having an incredible season. Anyone actually checked what he's done as a hooker this season?

Would be keen to know what we intend to do with him. 10+ clubs would be stoked to give him a crack in first grade.

Apologies, only got to see last 10 minutes of the game. Bit sloppy defence at the end, but the Coach was happy with the effort from the local players.

Seve and Tino played Q Cup but Earl and Tui didn't. Grant was also pulled late. Once again Tigers were thumped and Falcons dominated.

Wonder why Harry didn’t play...that’s annoying for his Petero medal chances

Could there be a chance he plays for Storm next week ? I would love to see it. If Paps goes to fullback and Croft is dropped, there is a spot.
