Talk Warriors players may quit the season and return home over Kearney sacking. Wonder if the game will go ahead at this point.

Would be H-YUGE if they did go.

If we do end up playing them, I think the strike rate of clubs performing out of their skins the week after sacking a coach is high across all codes. I think this is the toughest contest we have come up against this year.

STORM DISRUPTED BY VICTORIAN OUTBREAK

The Melbourne Storm have been forced to move their next home game to Sydney due to the Covid-19 outbreak in Victoria.

The Storm were due to play the Warriors at AAMI Park in Round 7 but a spike in cases on Sunday in Victoria has forced them to act.

The club is also in discussions about what the outbreak will mean for them moving forward however it is not clear yet whether they will be forced to relocate on a more permanent basis.

We should reward Tino with a start and get Brandon back to his role as impact player off the bench.

We should also get rid of that 5 minute super sub that appears at minute 75.

If I see Eisenhuth on the bench I wont watch - no knock on the man himself but it indicates what the coaches are planning on doing with our gameplan.

Lee has a hamstring injury. Looks like Momirovski will make his Storm debut this week and will become Storm player 202.
