Re: Trials 2024

I agree with Sallymay - we have a shocking record in preseason games. Craig’s record shows that he times us beautifully to peak in round 1. It will be very interesting to see the makeup of the outside backs in the next trial game. I had figured Warbrick and Coates on the wings, Meaney as one centre ...

That is wonderful news.

Fingers crossed it goes well for Ryan and his self-confidence.

Re: Leadership group

In Craig’s recent interview with Brent Read ( an excellent journalist who gives us a fair go, in my opinion), he said there needed to be leadership improvements both on and off the field. As to on-field, he could of course mean that he expects a different approach from the encumbents, but I suspect ...

Re: Official thread and signing news

A sensible trade by both clubs ( both of whom also showed a lot of common sense with the Grant/Momirovski temporary trade a few years ago. Many thanks to Justin for his service , and best wishes at Tigers. We really needed a second rower to partner Eli, and let’s hope Shawn is the answer. I already ...

Re: Official thread and signing news

I call complete BS … I read a very good article by Brent Read ( who is one of the few journos who give us a fair go ) , who did indeed call BS on it. He reckons it was a plant by another club who was trying to elicit a stern denial by the Storm which in turn would unsettle Sua ! Pleasingly he also ...

Re: Queensland Cup

Jonah very cool under pressure. 5 from 5 and directed them well.

Great for Ryley Jacks and Corey Thompson- two whole-hearted veterans of the game.

Great also for the Storm players , who get to play in Sydney in 2 weeks.

Re: Round 27 - Rest and Blood players

Yes, we are so lucky as fans to have a team that represents us so well each week and each season. This final round has fallen well for us, but due primarily to the reserve players stepping up superbly .Unlike last season when we limped into the finals, we can head back to Brisbane with key players r...

Re: Round 27 - Rest and Blood players

Wonder why we even bothered to name Katoa? Not sure if sitting him was the original plan since we only announced two debuts originally? Anyway, good to see another younger guy given a shot. Not sure if anyone outside of Sua has really earnt it but I am excited nonetheless. Craig at the post match p...

Re: R24 Sun - Melbourne v Canberra @ AAMI

Just going off point a bit. I am back watching NRL 360. It is a FAR better show than it used to be. Braith Anasta ( Munster’s manager ) gives us a fair go. That terrible Paul Kent has been banished as co-host due to his personal issues, replaced by Gorden Tallis who again is fair to us ; and another...

Re: R24 Sun - Melbourne v Canberra @ AAMI

Was Tui hurt? He didn't come back after his first stint I was wondering the same thing. Hopefully it just reflected that they wanted to give Tepai and Bronson bigger minutes. I hope Will Warbrick is ok for next week. Craig said Paps unlikely next week , so we need Will to wing and Reimis to centre .

Re: Papi is back!

Looking at the QRL website, I see that Paps played the full 80 today, made 5 conversions and a penalty goal AND scored a try in the last minute ! I expect that will give him huge confidence .
