Re: Milestone Thread 2021

That’s it Scooter - give the people what they want. Super obscure Storm stats. I genuinely love it! Thanks from me too Scooter . Those names conjure up some long- distant memories. A few lucky blokes there, signing up mid-season, winning a premiership then moving on. I think Richie barely had 12 mi...

Re: Preliminary final 2 - Saturday 25th

Disappointing way to end the season. Too many errors unfortunately and still nearly pinched it in the end. Sad to farewell Dale, Foxx and Nicho like that. But if you had said at start of year after losing Cameron Smith that we would make the preliminary final, we probably would have taken it. Loss ...

Re: Preliminary final 2 - Saturday 25th

We have Sutton not Klown as ref - phew . However Klown is our video referee , so still has a big opportunity to stuff us up. Troublingly he is also refereeing the other game, so must be in the frame for the grand final. Shades of the 2006 stitch up ? I hope not ! Penrith complaining that Sutton is o...

Apparently they had already used their 8 changes as well. Will there be some big questions?
According to NRL website play-by-play, Penrith had 8 free interchanges ! Cynical abuse of the system .

A superb game of Rugby League spoilt by players from both sides staying down to milk penalties .

Yes I see that now,. Would definitely have preferred the Friday night but, to be fair , last year Penrith as minor premiers played their prelim on the Saturday and we played on the Friday. The AFL do it the other way around.

Re: Penrith lose- now we play them in Plemin

I posted after the Parra game that the pre finals training load may have been catching up with us a bit. Given how fresh we looked vs manly vs how tapped out the pennies were looking towards the end of last night's south's game, I feel like Craig's got it right yet again. The resting of players, th...

Re: Qualifying Final - Storm vs Sea Eagles

Riders of the Storm the fact we have a full strength forward pack makes me feel confident if we play anywhere near our best we win. Tui has had a couple of games back and NAS one game and the rest of forwards have had rests. Craig will also have a defensive plan in place to try and nullify Turbo an...

Re: A Ref's thoughts on Cameron Smith

In other words, he showed respect so he received it back. Exactly right- however , watch the Sydney commentary suggest it is cheating. They prefer the more Neanderthal approach of Robinson, Barrett and Hasler of belittling officials and blaming others for the failings of themselves and their teams .

Re: RD 25 vs Cronulla

Loving the fact cowboys pushed manly’s full strength team for the full 80. Big advantage for us with a heap of our forwards being a lot more fresh for next weeks game. True ( well, 70, not 80 ! ) but Manly have 2 gun wingers, their 3 back rowers are very dangerous, and I think their full back is qu...

This is a huge positive for us. NAS is our X factor
Huge relief !

Re: Official Injury Updates Thread

So, according to NRL.com.au Jesse Bromwich will only miss a week with an early guilty plea so you'd think they'll make him sit a week and he'll be right for week one of the finals. Depending who you ask here that could be bad news or it could be good news haha He was due a week off next week anyway...
