Re: Official thread and signing news

Am I reading the Storm's announcement correctly? Seems based on Branson's comments on that podfart that they are like 'You dont fit, we arent really going to pursue a contract extension with you, go where you want' Edit: Ignore me, i misunderstood. Brendan Smurf has provided written notice that he'...

Re: Official thread and signing news

I'll believe we're cutting him early when I see actual quotes from Frank and Bellamy. No doubt they'd be pissed about how Brandon has handled the situation but they're not going to make the team worse. Not only that – but why cut him and make another side which will also be contending for the premi...

Re: Official thread and signing news

I guess you could say we'll miss his experience but he's the most average of players who was fortunate enough to play in purple. Can't imagine we were ever thinking about offering him a 3 year deal. It's a weird one. He was unbelievably good in 2017 I thought but since then he's been solid without ...

Re: Official thread and signing news

Word from Triple M is next season will be Felise Kaufusi's last with the Storm.

He's signed to play with the Dolphins in 2023 on a three-year deal.

Re: Official thread and signing news

Liam Jones, Carlton player in the AFL, just announced his retirement due to not wanting the vaccine. I hope like hell NAS doesn't go down this route. He basically can't have a job as an NRL player if he doesn't get jabbed. Queensland has a mandate and so does Victoria. I can't see a NSW-based team ...

Darius Farmer will join Bacho Salam, Tony Pellow and Will Samuel for Melbourne Storm’s pre-season as a part of the club’s feeder club allocation and he is relishing in the opportunity given to him.

Re: Official thread and signing news

Does anyone else find it interesting that apparently the Storm got in touch with Warbrick before the Olympics?

He’s been on the radar for some time but I’m not sure we had any idea the Storm were looking at him. Should be handy though - two wingers with speed and height for kicks.

Re: Official thread and signing news

Disappointing for Dan & Tyson. Obviously the club rates Cooper Johns, Jonah Pezet, Jayden Nikorima & Tyran Wishart. I was pretty shocked by Atkinson and Smoothy leaving given both debuted in first grade with the Storm this year. Thought Atkinson might have been a long-term project given how...

Re: 2022 predictions

Here's one I'd like to add from my own crystal ball.

Buoyed by the return of Cameron Munster, who's carrying an undisclosed leg injury, the Storm atone for their 2021 preliminary finals exit and qualify for the 2022 Grand Final.

Re: Lock position

NAS is a good option and we need him in the game for 50-60mins I think Eisenhuth might have the makings of a lock more in the Dale mould I'd get behind Eisenhuth playing there. He's awesome. Hard worker, covers a heap of positions. Alternatively, I'd love Tui Kamikamica starting there for a bit mor...

Re: End of year celebrations - to be investigated

If you're stupid enough to be doing what they were obviously doing, you're stupid enough to record it (or not care that it was). I'm starting to not really care whether we end up losing Munster to a new Brisbane team - his lacklustre or ineffective games are now just about equaling (or even outnumb...

Re: Preliminary final 2 - Saturday 25th

Let’s face it - losing two starting forwards in the opening 15 minutes was an absolute disaster.

It also meant the bench was effectively a fullback and a prop which is just… Not great?

Also, Munster was absolutely horrendous. Some of his kicking in general play was woeful.

Re: Preliminary final 2 - Saturday 25th

The team that has the best completion percentage will win I think the team with the best go-forward & defensive pressure will win - against good kicking teams where we're constantly being forced to come out of our own 10 metre zone with our smaller guys, and not much help from our forwards in t...

Re: Preliminary final 2 - Saturday 25th

Sorry to jinx you guys but in 2018 and 2019 against the Roosters I was driving my car during both games and we lost. I have to be driving again tomorrow and will miss the game on TV, so if we lose it’s all on me unfortunately That’s a shame mate. Won’t that clash with your daily ritual of trying to...
