Re: Storm v ??? Prelim final. Friday 22nd September

Watching last nights game, even though most thought it was high intensity, I saw two tired teams from kickoff.
Brisbane will be better in attack with Boyd back but if we just keep running our big boys straight down the middle we should be too strong for them.

Re: Korobiete to the Dragons

Why would he want to leave rugby? He'll be earning way more there then what he could in the NRL. Saw him playing in the NRC on Fox and it's a big step down for a player of his calibre. Big money or not playing basically park footy can't do much for his ambitions. I was hoping the Eels replaced Radr...

Re: Korobiete to the Dragons

Sad really but our current wingers are as good as we've had. Hope that team can give him opportunities or he'll be a has-been in no time.

Re: Qualifying Final: Storm vs Eels

Surprising it was Filise's first finals game. He has come leaps and bounds and will surely be a contender for second rower of the year.

Re: 2014 Official thread and signing news

I dont mind him staying but wouldn't it be a better playing opportunity at Newcastle?
If B.Smith is left in reserve grade next year I'm not confident we'll keep him.

Re: Qualifying Final: Storm vs Eels

Watching the Foxsports replay and wow I thought channel 9 commentary was bad! Anasta and Roach so biased.

Re: Qualifying Final: Storm vs Eels

I think we were in equal parts lucky to win and a deserved winner. We had at least 4 very clear or very near try scoring opportunities that were missed out on and I think we also got the rub of the green for a couple. Probably a kick up the backside that (might've?) been needed. I think Munster's p...

Had we lost that game the lesson would've been the same so good to learn it in a win

Re: Qualifying Final: Storm vs Eels

Two wingers shocking but the team are rattled. Jesse, McLean and Finucane off at the same time isn't great either.
Very surprised Smith hasn't kicked early out of our half like he has all year to get us out of trouble.

Re: 2014 Official thread and signing news

The Gasnier deal was definitely not right, but I wouldn't have had a problem with it if they didn't bs the nrl and just said it was a 2 year/$100k deal. Exactly. I'm the same but IIRC Sam Burgess went to Rabbits for $150k on the cap after his ESL club demanded a huge transfer fee) from the Tigers (...

Re: 2014 Official thread and signing news

I guess the clubs always abuse any loophole in the cap so can't blame the NRL really.
Mark Gasnier signing on a bargain with a big back-ended contract only to retire prematurely before the 'real' money kicked in is another example.

Re: 2014 Official thread and signing news

Anyone think Cooper will retire and next year if injury strikes or Croft doesn't play the way we hope he could sign a dollar contract??

Re: Qualifying Final: Storm vs Eels

Is anyone in doubt for this game?
I find it interesting Tonumaipea named as a reserve given Hughes was listed also.
