Could very well be.

I really don’t think Storm will sack NAS. He’ll likely be iced. Salary adjusted and then come back to play in the second half of 2022.

I really hope he gets a run. His 20s highlights look great, but I do note he's listed in 20s as 106kg now he is 125kg, I wonder what that's done to his pace and agility.

Sallymay, how good was Tualau's offload to set up that try in Queensland Cup?

It's good for Welch if he does get a long term contract because he's one or two more head knocks away from having serious discussions about his future. Wonder if the club bit the bullet on that one because of uncertainty elsewhere on the roster, feel like 2+1 would've been better.

Can someone let the club know that Bacho isn't related to Christian Salem. His last name is spelt Salam.

Word from Triple M is next season will be Felise Kaufusi's last with the Storm.

He's signed to play with the Dolphins in 2023 on a three-year deal.

I guess you could say we'll miss his experience but he's the most average of players who was fortunate enough to play in purple. Can't imagine we were ever thinking about offering him a 3 year deal.

I agree, Blazza. He’s been an exemplary clubman, but no superstar.
I can’t see we’re gonna miss him that much.

It's a weird one. He was unbelievably good in 2017 I thought but since then he's been solid without being spectacular.

Also, he'll be 31 by the time he heads to the Dolphins anyway. Should be time for Howarth or Loiero to step up by then.
