Storm tweeted ... A ... Debut ...I was hoping they would tweet club debut or nrl debut but they are clever

It’s could be any of the 3

I get the feeling it could be Chris Lewis actually

How good would one of each be? ;)

Still not the biggest change (IMO). Let's just say Brandon should see more minutes...

Can't believe we didn't drop Hughes or Papenhuyzen so Jacks could play.
Such short memories around here... :scratch:

Also, am I the only one here who has no idea why NAS was charged? I completely missed the incident during the game, and after watching the replay of the so-called "dangerous contact - head/neck" footage via Fox Sports, I'm still confused... or are we just pretending that the Raiders game and everything that came from it didn't happen (which I could certainly get on board with!)?

I can't believe that Raiders player didn't even get charged for the shoulder charge

I was confused as well. I don't know why we rarely challenge charges. Roosters do it all the time and are often successful.

Which of our players was involved in that accidental crusher? Was it NAS? It was funny when it happened - we were penalised - 60 seconds later Paps is tackled in a crusher - play on :lol:

Yourhero I think it was Tino that got penalised for the "crusher". I assume that is the incident he was charged with but was free to play. Not sure Mr Atkins knows what consistency means.

Whoah. Brandon Smith is starting... At prop.

But it's likely he'll roam and play at back-row/lock.

Brenko Lee starts with Seve dropped and Chris Lewis will make his debut from the bench.

Happy with those changes Lee is at his 4th club the kind of guy Bellamy works his magic on. Plus Seve wasn't providing a lot of output. Chris Lewis has been a consistent performer in Qld Cup.

Hughes and Addo-Carr have been average. Cannot wait for JAC to move on tbh. Every single time he has a run, he is driven backwards a few metres and we lose all momentum.
