Re: Away to Souths

Important round for ladder position as two teams above us play. If we win, we finish the round in either 2nd or 3rd place and 2-4 points behind 1st. If we lose, we stay in 5th, likely only 2points ahead of the Warriors and the Dragons - and likely 6 points behind first. Our hopes of finishing top 2 ...

Re: Xavier Coates to Storm?

That is reasonable.

When $500K was being touted, I thought that was a bit rich but thought if we could get him close to $400K there was value.

I think that figure is good for us and the environment should be good for Coates’s development.

Re: Xavier Coates to Storm?

So earlier today we had him now they have back tracked and said he has to think about it My guess is he has signed but there’s a cooling off period and will take 4/6 weeks to go though ...just wait You’re probably right RE cooling off period. Storm in particular always wait for that to expire befor...

Re: Away to Souths

Wow... Besides the big blokes running at Hawkins (which should definitely happen all night), we need to put up some high balls for Walker and make it a contest. He is short and not experienced at the back. I reckon we can get a few results our way.

“Vultures circling”
Exactly. How does a journo worth his salt not put this clear hypocrisy to them?

Re: Xavier Coates to Storm?

Hypocrisy is never going to endear him across the League though and even a large portion of Broncos fans wouldn't accept what he is putting forward. They signed Milford on $1M from the Raiders. Bird $1M from Cronulla. Croft from Melbourne. But then cry about other clubs throwing big money to attract...

Re: Away to Souths

The return of NAS and Jennings is timely and definitely aids our bench options. Dale, Tui or Nelson may come on to start at lock with Brandon shifting to the bench. Matter of fact, we haven't started a 'smaller' lock forward against Souths since 2014 when we still had Hinchy. Not that that probably ...

Re: Away to Souths

Penrith's defence has been unbelievable to be honest. They are averaging 7.5 points conceded across the season so far.

Storm are averaging 13.5...

Re: Away to Souths

We have played the Bunnies 34 times in our history, winning 29 of those games (85%). Whoa! This is our best record against any team (85%) and Souths worst record against any team (15%). Melbourne is one of two teams yet to concede more than 20 points in a match this season (Penrith). Souths have co...

Re: Xavier Coates to Storm?

They increased JACs contract this year to $650,000 which gives them something to play with. True, however we have typically left a bit of cap room for a mid season pick-up. Maybe we forwent that this year to secure JAC for one last year. If they did land Xavier Coates, we would probably say good by...

Re: Away to Souths

Both teams have been racking up huge points over the past 5 weeks! Defence has been good as well, but both teams probably feel that they have room for improvement in this regard. Both teams will also be interested in using this game as a measuring stick to see where they are really at, as both teams...

Re: Xavier Coates to Storm?

WHY GREG ALEXANDER WOULD BE "STUNNED" IF STORM LAND XAVIER COATES I would be stunned if (Xavier Coates) goes to the Storm,” Alexander said on SEN 1170 Mornings with Matt White. “The Storm are the type of club that won’t pay big money for wingers, otherwise they’d keep Josh Addo-Carr. “In ...
