Re: Mystery of the Missing Accountant

This from Cronk on the Fox News Website: COOPER CRONK 2021 PREMIERS ROOSTERS: A little bias but I think they’ve changed the things that let them down last year and these changes will have a huge impact on their performances.

Re: Official thread and signing news

What are our thoughts on Mansour? Apparently Penrith have told him he's free to go or he'll play NSW cup. Mansour would be a 1 year (or 2 max) option if Storm couldn't identify suitable long term replacements for Suli and Foxx. The player I'd be interested in replacing Fox or Suli is Corey Allan. P...

Reckon the Cheese has ever read any of his work?

Re: 2020 Grand Final - Panthers vs Storm

Just got back from the game. It was a really unusual and somewhat surreal experience. I can’t say I was totally confident the guys were going to win (and I’ve been to the Storm’s past three GFs). But man, this team with this coach. I hope everyone who reads this forum and/or supports the Melbourne S...

Re: 2020 Grand Final - Panthers vs Storm

I'm not sure this helps comfort the nerves of anyone here.

But it's really important to note the last time the Storm played these guys they didn't have Josh Addo-Carr or Jahrome Hughes playing.

I'd say those two guys have been two of Melbourne's best the past two weeks or so if not all season.

Re: Preliminary Final - Storm vs Raiders

No one's been charged after last night's game.

Also, if the Panthers make it through that means the Storm's finals run will be against the only three teams to have beaten them all year.

Anyone else find that really weird?

Re: Preliminary Final - Storm vs Raiders

It seemed pretty obvious from the get-go that the message from Bellamy was about starting well.

That was a wonderful, wonderful performance. What a club. Smith making that tackle on Cotric summed the team's resolve tonight.

Re: Preliminary Final - Storm vs Raiders

I don't always agree with the previews, but I agree with this one - this game is going to be won up front. I mean most games are, but this one in particular. Our key to stopping the Raiders, is stopping Papalii and Tapine. Between them they had 12 Tackle Breaks and Papalii's sneaky offload caused t...

Re: Preliminary Final - Storm vs Raiders

Dale Finucane today said he's in with a chance to play and got through some contact training.

Pretty promising after Frank Ponissi last week said he was only a slim chance due to a setback in his recovery. He'd be a huge in.

Re: Finals Week 1

Article from Sporting News Australia pushing for a Cameron Smith suspension for "lifting" tackle on Dylan Brown. Of course the NSW morons (sorry Rugby League fans) are lapping it up. Not sure it helps but that's not actually a real person (the byline I mean). It's a pseudonym. Try to igno...

Re: Finals Week 1

Honestly, just hold onto the damn ball.

The guys have put together five line breaks. Just cut to that left and get someone to back up on the inside.

Re: Round 20 - Dragons vs Storm

Have the Rabbits done the competition a favour by smashing the Roosters last night? History is a very tough opponent and no team has ever had 50 put on them and gone on to win the flag. If any team can come back from that though and turn it around - it's surely them. That being said you have to ask...

Re: Official thread and signing news

This is most unfortunate... Dave wouldn't have put in an application if he didn't want the job. I wonder why he wants to leave? Money/a chance to achieve success elsewhere/bolster the resume? Maybe he has found "isolating" in QLD to his liking? Dave is originally from Queensland and previ...
