Re: The Jerseys, Merchandise and Sponsorship Thread

We've usually got one of the best jerseys in the comp - I thought we had that more than covered, but for some reason we keep stuffing around with the design and it was only a matter of time before we ended up with a rare "miss" like this 2021 version.

Surely something would have to have gone seriously wrong with our halves/hooker stocks for Mullen to get a run with our first grade squad.

Nope, terrible. Was that like 5 minutes spent in design by Castore??? #-o

Re: Official thread and signing news

The Belly ache polish can improve players 15-20%. And then if they believe in themselves, they almost have a cathartic epiphany that they reach under our Club system. Look at all the players who came to the Storm as nomads and left as really high quality players. I feel the future is secure. and We...

Re: Official thread and signing news

I think Brandon has had enough opportunities to show us what his style of play would be like from the #9, and as others have said, I don't think he has the stamina to play the full 80 minutes with his high energy, no self-preservation style that makes him such a handful, and when he doesn't play wit...

Fair point.

Except for 2006 - that was a dead set stitchup.

Agreed. I haven't been able to bring myself to attend another GF since that debacle!

Re: Preliminary Final - Storm vs Raiders

The last few times we've played the Raiders they really haven't done anything special in attack, but their defence has been great and has really frustrated our clunky attack, particularly when in striking distance of the try line. Having the week off won't help our timing or combinations in attack, ...

Re: Finals Week 1

And right on cue the NRL have decided to double the fine that was given to the Titans earlier in the year ($5,000), for the exact same 'offence', handing us a $10,000 breach notice for the Suli stoppage for a cramp - once again, we are being used to make an example out of... FFS! :roll:

Re: Finals Week 1

I didn’t agree with the game stopping last year. I didn’t agree with it last week. But I particularly don’t agree with the hypocrisy of outrage based on who did it. Completely agree, and this is what infuriates me the most - it's the double standard and hypocrisy of the reporting, MRC charges, and ...

Re: Finals Week 1

Apparently we're being investigated over the Suli cramp incident Rightfully so in my opinion - we would have been extremely pissed off had the opposition stopped the game like that for a cramp while we were on the attack. I have no idea what sort of penalty could (and surely will) be imposed though...

Re: Finals Week 1

Big concerns coming out of that game - handling, discipline, and in defence we were very poor at times, and no Munster moving forward will hurt against the Panthers, Roosters, and/or Raiders. Give over - what’s with the negativity on here? Sure we were sloppy at times, made some strange errors and ...
