Re: Rep round

Match report on QRL website suggests Scott Drinkwater played well for Qld Residents today. A couple of Burleigh Bears injured , but no others mentioned, so hopefully our lads all got through unscathed.

Re: Rep round

This is shaping as a very ugly weekend for the Storm. Four blokes playing today - 2 injured and the other 2 disappointing. I reckon we will all be holding our breath for the games overnight and tomorrow.

Re: 2014 Official thread and signing news

I would have Jahrome Hughes over Blake Austin for sure. Jahrome has a huge upside, and a level head.

Re: Round 15 - Knights vs Storm

Looking ahead to our next game v Roosters on Friday 29 June, we may need to find three new players. Surely it will be tough to back up on Friday night for NZ players after playing Sunday morning (our time) in Denver. NAS, Brandon Smith and Kenny Bromwich could all be picked by NZ. Not sure Smith or...

Re: Bellamy soon to make Storm call

To state the obvious, wonderful news . We are so lucky to have Craig as coach, and his vote of confidence in the club is fantastic .

Re: Cameron Smith - Rep Retirement

wow. Just got off an international flight to this news ! I am in total agreement with those posters who have said this would definitely have been a well-considered decision, and that it is good news for the Storm. Will take a huge gloss off SOO1 , where I am hosting some folks flying down from Qld, ...

Re: Round 11 - Storm vs Sea Eagles

I am very pleased to see Hughes in the 17. If indeed Glasby is fit he is the straight swap for Sam, and Hughes ( next best player in the squad) for Cam Smith makes sense.

Re: Round 10 - Storm vs Titans

Well that was underwhelming. A very flattering scoreline for us. However, as others have noted, Brandon Smith had an extended period on the field and did not disappoint. I am not surprised- nor would most of the contributors to this website. He has shown a lot every time he has played for us. I real...

Re: Official Injury Updates Thread

If Hughes gets through this weekend in QCup, might he be an option at Centre ?

I agree totally. Important for our future, the both of them. Certain both to get a good go during Origin period

Re: Official Injury Updates Thread

Seven senior players are not named either for Storm, Easts or Falcons this weekend . Blair, Finucane and Earl we know about. Any news re possible return of Hughes ? It has been 7 weeks now. Papenhuyzen has been out for the last 2 or 3 weeks. Any news ? Now both Billy Walters and Scott Drinkwater out...

Re: Round 6 - Storm vs Knights

Better in the second half. Billy was superb tonight. Set up a number of tries, kicked well, drew the sin bin with a quick penalty tap, and pulled off a try- saver on Ponga. Loved seeing Brandon Smith out there. First hitup he grabbed 15 metres. The balance on the bench looks so much better when he i...

Re: Round 6 - Storm vs Knights

Geez that turned quickly. Even with a 10 point lead at halftime, there is a very flat atmosphere here at AAMI.
