Re: Queensland Cup 2017

A report on the Storm website says Jahrome has a suspected broken foot. That is a great shame. He would otherwise no doubt have been picked in the 21, warmed up with the team and been able to experience the grand final closeup. He has had an excellent season.

Re: Queensland Cup 2017

Falcons had their chances to put it away. Poor last tackle options twice by Hamilton and then unfortunately by Ryley Jacks. Hughes limped off with 10 to go, which hurt. Brandon Smith enormous - a tackling machine, quick delivery and smart decisions in attack- but we all already knew that. Lachlan Ti...

Re: Prelim Final: Storm v Broncos

Just watched the replay and while I saw it last night, watching on tv just really shows how grubby Blair actually is. Pains me to say it as an ex Storm player but he just is Ditto from me. Blair is a disgrace. I have just watched the replay again, and it was great to hear the Fox commentators calli...

Re: 2017 Grand Final: Storm Vs Cowboys

They've won the battle up the middle against some pretty good forward packs the last few weeks. Wonder if that might swap Bellamy into playing four forwards. I think that horse has bolted, Blazza. Craig has shown his faith in Slade, and I doubt that will change, noting that Ben Hampton will be on t...

Re: 2017 Grand Final: Storm Vs Cowboys

The Cowboys are most worthy opponents. I wonder if Matt Scott can get up for this one. His presence would be a huge plus for them. Paul Green was giving nothing away tonight at the press conference. It is delightful that no Sydney team will be in the GF ( nor in the AFL , after GWS went down today )...

Re: Prelim Final: Storm v Broncos

I was so nervous before last night- and so it seemed were some of the boys! Still , the defence all night was superb. Fabulous by everyone. The game breaker was that exquisite pass to Fox by Curtis Scott. He has stepped into Cheyse's role with aplomb. Felise Kaufusi- it is extraordinary how much he ...

Re: Prelim Final: Storm v Broncos

Jahrome did not play last weekend either. Hmm, I hate this uncertainty !

Re: Queensland Cup 2017

Doubles to jacks olam and Stimson as well as a try tk Drinkwater And a double to Ryley Jacks - so all seven tries scored by Storm players! I would assume/hope that Jahrome was held back to avoid injury, on the basis that he has been anointed as the Reserve back for next Friday night, in case of any...

Re: Queensland Cup 2017

The same 9 Storm players as last week are selected for the Falcons this weekend - Hughes, Olam, Hawkins, Drinkwater, Jacks, Kamikamica, Stimson, Smith and Geraghty. Good luck, lads.

Re: Qualifying Final: Storm vs Eels

Richard Hinds has written an excellent and withering criticism of Flanagan on ABC Online - called his outburst an "appalling diatribe". He served it up to Trent Barrett too. Good stuff.

Re: Qualifying Final: Storm vs Eels

Yes Yes Yes!!!! Cronulla Gone!!!! Excellent . Shane Flanagan showed post-game what a classless individual he is. Last year after the GF loss, Cameron Smith showed his superb qualities by congratulating the Sharks and giving them due credit. Today Flanagan could have adopted the same attitude toward...

Re: Queensland Cup 2017

Falcons win 26-22. Great season, Easts. According to QRL Website, Brandon Smith played 71 minutes for Falcons. Great news. If he pulls up ok, he has another game next week. Huge Storm representation . Falcons- Hughes, Stimson, Drinkwater, Jacks, Olam, Kamikamica, Hawkins, Smith, Geraghty ( though un...
