And the NRL's response will be to appoint Klein again next week.

Re: Preliminary Final - Storm vs Raiders

Brilliant performance by the boys. Have to agree with Klein - Penalties conceded Storm 6 Raiders 1, Set restarts conceded Storm 2 Raiders 1. I read a comment somewhere earlier in the week (could have been in this thread) that the Raiders lie in the play ball as much if not more than other teams but ...

Re: Preliminary Final - Storm vs Raiders

Great first 25. Raiders started poorly, but had a better last 15 minutes. Glad we stopped them from scoring a second try. But if Raiders score first try of second half, it is only 12 points and game on. Outrageous there was no penalty for Tino. Fatty said he copped the trifecta a shoulder charge, a ...

Yourhero beat me to it. Tom Eisenhuth back on the bench and Dale Finucane in extended squad.

Re: Preliminary Final - Storm vs Raiders

Dale Finucane today said he's in with a chance to play and got through some contact training. Pretty promising after Frank Ponissi last week said he was only a slim chance due to a setback in his recovery. He'd be a huge in. Would be massive inclusion, even if he started on the bench. Chris Lewis d...

Re: Finals Week 1

I just listened to an interview Frank Ponissi did on SEN yesterday: - He called the charge on Cameron Smith "harsh" and that the Storm were "disappointed" he was charged and that Frank viewed it as a 50-50 charge and that at this time of year that he would hope the player would b...

Re: Official thread and signing news

https://www.melbournestorm.com.au/news/2020/10/06/2020-nrl-debutants-extend-storm-contracts/ Chris Lewis has signed a new two year deal and has been promoted to our full time squad for the first time. Isaac Lumelume and Aaron Pene have exercised one year options. Very happy with all of those signings.

Re: Finals Week 1

Hate to say it but I agree with you insomniac, it was very soccer-esque. To be fair the trainer may not have known it was a cramp, they may have just seen Suli down and assume a serious injury. What;s more it was consistent with what happened earlier, play was stopped for a while in the first half ...

Re: Finals Week 1

Storm have announced that Cameron Smith has lodged early guilty plea. Free to play in Preliminary Final but with 75 carry over points.

Re: Finals Week 1

The timing not helped with Kikau doing a similar tackle the night before. Not really a lot in it and agree if it was round 5 we'd challenge it. I'm not sure we need both Dale and Tui in the 17. Not with Brandon being another middle forward as well. Think Tui will be the unlucky one. Hynes' probably...

Re: Finals Week 1

Cameron Smith charged with dangerous throw, 100 base points. If he pleads guilty, free to play in preliminary final with 75 carry over points. If it happened during the season I reckon we would challenge it, but given it is a final I would have thought Storm would have already pled guilty. Marata Ni...
