Despite the disappointment off last night and how our season finished I think we still have a lot to be proud of with our team and a lot to look forward to in the future. A few people have mentioned starting this thread again for 2014 but no-one seems to have got around to it yet so I thought today might be a good day. I hope the guys have a great break over Christmas with their families and then we start again next year. As always... Go Storm! :-)

Hopefully he doesn't try to choke Craig.
Also Justin Morgan is on the shortlist to become assistant coach.

Would be a great get.

Was a big mistake how we handled McGahan IMO.

Not sure what is happening with Rose but if Packer was available I wouldn`t mind seeing him in a Storm jersey. Probably out of our price range but can definitely bend the line

I read that yesterday - if we could get Matulino that would be huge. Starting props Jesse and Matulino would be brilliant. Then Jordon comes on and we would have a great prop rotation.

Don't think it will happen but I'd be damned excited if it did

No surprise at all. Elliot isn't exactly a coach you want to play for and his selections week in week out were bizarre. They've thrown everything in the Tomkins basket thinking he'll be a savour.

I'd give my left you know what to have Matulino in a purple jersey. Packer would add size but Matulino is seriously underrated.

couldn't agree more Blazza re: Packer or Matulino. Matulino I think is a gun and he's only 24!

We need a good Front rower and Second rower..not sure when Weston fits in to the picture but I think we need some more impact and go forward. I'm seriously gutted we signed Norrie again..he is useless.
