No way we would be getting away with the bs the Titans have gotten away with around the play the ball tonight.

Really nice reward for Young that, he’s been solid tonight. Be interesting to see how he goes against better competition.

Can tell Cooper Johns has some smarts about him but he’s so stiff and robotic. Think that’s what is stopping him from furthering his career.

A few weeks ago after an incident, the NRL made a point that the ref decides full time, not the siren at the ground.

That isn’t an error. That is cheating. This needs investigating (/Toovey impression).
If Bellamy was to complain about every poor decision in this game, Annesley wouldn't be doing his Monday refereeing review until Wednesday.
Gough must have had his house on the Titans to win.

Great to see Young back and get a score.

Young was actually very solid. He can be proud of that effort.

Good effort and happy to take the W. Munster and grant outstanding.

Nofa and Young T looked good.

Pack did enough. Some poor defence at times . Certainly work to do for stronger oppositions

And finally. He’s took some sh1t in the past but Cooper Johns take a bow. Best performance in a Storm top. Nearly scored a few times and he would have deserved it. Been good reward. He did his job, a few try assists and his defence on Fifita was solid…

So does Olam replace Seve or Young T?

Good to see Young back, he was solid and to finish it off with a try.

My heart was in my mouth before half time when Xavier Coates was holding his ankle.

Fingers crossed for Jahrome.

I agree re Cooper his best game for the Storm.

Jahrome’s incident didn’t look good. A variation on the usual AC joint injury we see when someone lands on an outstretched arm.

Hopefully just a scare or if AC joint, low grade.

Said it last week, but gee Munster looks to be loving playing fullback and enjoying the time and space playing there gives him.
Do we experiment with paps at 5/8 during the off season?

I think so, looked like he never missed a beat. I'd love to see how he goes against more respectable teams, I think he would of course hold his own. Interesting to see what happens against Roosters/eels/Panthers without munny in halves

Was just listening to Ennis after the Manley Vs Eels match and he was talking about Cheese's report and spoke complete sense. He said cheese was simply a passenger in the tackle and would have done more damage if he was to let go of the tackle. I can't see Cheese even being sighted tomorrow or whenever they do the review.

It’s a pretty wild thing but if you were to assess him as a five-eighth or a fullback against every other player in the competition he’s potentially a top five or even top two in both positions. He’s a freak.
