The idea behind it makes some sense but I legitimately hate these types of reports. The "third party" could be literally anyone. Unless it was a Storm official there's no story at all.

Article is by Dunny Widdler. That in itself should tell you all you need to know.

I mean regardless if it’s true or not we are going to have to choose one or the other. A 25 year old that’s been struggling with injuries over the years & not knowing if that will continue & most likely won’t get back to 2020 paps or a 20 year old superstar in the making with much more upside and potential. I know who I’m choosing and I’m sure I know the storm deep down know it too.

Gotta feel for paps though.

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 said Sua , as a Victorian, is very happy at the Storm.

Article in Zero Tackle suggesting Toby Rudolf as a good target for Storm to recruit. I was wondering what other stormers thought.

He's a good one. Taylan May though... No thanks, not interested, just no!

Rudolf - 11 runs for 93.3m, 1.3 tackle breaks, 0.86 offloads, 1 total linebreak, 25/1 tackles/missed tackles, 89% tackle efficiency, 4 total penalties

Welch - 11 runs for 90.6m, 0.92 tackle breaks, 1.56 offloads, 2 total linebreaks, 27/2 tackles/missed tackles, 88% tackle efficiency, 15 total penalties

Pretty similar. Don't think Rudolf is what the forward pack needs.

Hope this works - he is SUCH a valuable asset to any club.

Moeroa I can understand, Anderson at best a reserve winger but Ieremia?
