Lee has a hamstring injury. Looks like Momirovski will make his Storm debut this week and will become Storm player 202.
Hope so as I certainly have not been overwhelmed by Seve for some time.

I’m not sure we can take much out of this game, regardless of the result. Both teams have had immense disruption this week.

When a team loses a coach, occasionally we see them come out fired up wanting to make a statement. I don’t think we will see that from the Warriors based on some of their players statements this week.

If we win by a big margin, I don’t think that says anything.

If one team narrowly wins, questions will likely be asked of our commitment again.

But if the Warriors pump us, you can probably put a red line through us for 2020.

One minute and twenty seconds before we got penalised could be a long night.

WOW instantly with Momirovski our right side attack looks infinitely better than recent performances.

Great defensive efforts all around so far. Attacking wise itl be a bit sketchy but so far I think we should all enjoy this performance so far.

Amazing how much impact defence has. When Vunivalu scored, the Warriors had been tackled 20 times in our defensive 20 and the Storm had been tackled 0 times in Warriors 20 and we were up 10 - 0.

I don’t know who to feel sorry for in regards to the warriors but this is such a bummer of a performance.

Okay, so there is absolutely no way in the world Paul Momirovski can get dropped next week.

Defensively he’s excellent and he just seems so composed in attack. He’s brilliant.

Fox commentators are riding the Warriors wank-fest so hard. Yeah the score is against the run of play, but possession means bugger all if you can't capitalise on it. Anyone can attack all day but it takes a serious team to defend as we have been.

Momirovski needs to change his boots though 😂, got the balance of a baby giraffe on ice skates in those things.

Agreed, he's been impressive. Someone please get him some longer studs though!

How about the Herbert no try?

“That’s very 50/50.”

He’d clearly lost the ball and bounced it on the line.

Yep, if Papenhuyzen didn't score against Canberra, that didn't even warrant a second look

To be fair though, that doesn't mean the VR won't award it a try given recent decisions.
