No disrespect to him.....but not joining the greatest rugby league Club in the world doesn't make sense if you're a professional rugby league player

A few Instagram NRL pages reporting Storm and Xavier Coates in discussions for 2022 onwards.

I have not really rated Coates, however his origin appearance did improve my opinion of him a lot. He is still very young, raw talent and athleticism and needs to mature in a solid team. Post Bellyache and Post-Cameron... is that the environment that will get the best out of him? Hmm a lot of moving pieces, also who will be the halfback supplying him with kicks.

Overall, I think the signing would be beneficial to the club given we have lost the aerial threat of Suli and would have lost JAC's game breaking abilities.

Hope I'm not the only one thinking that Reimis Smith has the potential to become quite a decent winger for Storm ?

Great wing combination theyll have! Will they get the ball out to them though?

This is good overall as it makes the Doggies competitive again.

Wingers aren't much good if the team isn't going forwards. Good luck Josh.

Interesting that the official Storm site lists Cameron but not Reimis.

Have mentioned this before but we really need another backrower. Not only for depth but to maybe push the two starters.
