Re: Cam / Storm vs JT / Cowboys Testimonial

Still no Sam Kasiano. He had an injury pre-Christmas , and again for the last few weeks. He might lose that new ripping physique ! I hope he will be ok for round 1.

Re: World Club Challenge

Thought everybody played really well tonight. Obviously the standout was Croft. Thought Munster was great when he went to fullback, he needs to be fullback when Slater retires, I don’t care what anyone says, he is a better fullback then 5/8. NAS looked great. Good to see Welch back and geez our win...

Re: Round 1 predicted line ups

I reckon both Stimson and B Smith will be in the lineup.

Same structure as in the GF:

Stimson direct swap for Harris
B Smith for Griffin
Croft for Cronk
Kasiano for McLean

I think Craig might pick Hoffy ahead of Kenny for the last bench spot. I would be ok with that.

Scooter wrote:Slater clearly but boy Robbie Ross could play. Mattpoet agreed that a second XVII would be interesting to. So Slater at number 1 in the first team and Ross at number 1 in the second team.


My word he could play. A huge favourite in the early days - hence my adoption of his name for this forum !

Re: 2014 Official thread and signing news

Galo has gone. I think we are one short. Maybe Groat is in the wings at East.

Re: 2018 Junior Development

Dave Tyrell and Matt Groat are interesting pickups. Positives on 2 fronts. First, good to have the young fellows playing with 2 NRL forwards each week. Also, if we get in strife with injuries in the forwards, one of these could be a stopgap . There was talk on this forum a few weeks ago of us lookin...

Re: Cooper Cronk confirms he will play on with a Sydney club in season 2018

Jahrome Hughes is going to be a star. 1. Hughes 6. Munster 7. Croft 9. B. Smith there is the next 10 years sorted. Yep- I am happy with that spine. I am also enjoying - as others are on 'this forum - the disruption being caused within Sydney clubs as the teams fall over themselves to nab Cooper. Lo...

Re: What the actual FAAAAAAAAAARRRRRK?!?!?!??!

Very happy to have Sandor on board. It nicely balances the list from this season( I am assuming we have signed up Billy Walters, Lachlan Timm and Harry Grant ). Kasiano for McLean Hoffman for Harris Walters for Griffin P Kaufusi for Rochow Geraghty for Gallo Papenhuyzen for Cronk Earl for Hawkins Ti...

Re: Jordan Mclean

It is a great shame he has gone, but he left a great legacy. His GF was huge - really important hitups both deep in our back half, then on the attack, especially in the lead up to the match-winning Finucane try. I wish him well at the Cowboys. He will always be remembered as a significant contributo...

Re: 2018 Draw

Although we have sold a home game v GC, it seems we play 3 "away" games at neutral venues - Dogs, Tiges, Roosters . A couple of those early on. So though 13 games away from AAMI, only 9 at hostile venues. Sorry, my error. The Roosters sold their 2017 game against us, but next year we have...

Mattpoet wrote:I'm curious as to the plan for Drinkwater



My guess is they were thinking potentially at 6 , with Munster at 1 when Bill retires. He played mainly at 6 in Qcup. However Hughes did so well at FB this season, that they may leave Munster at 6. Not sure where that leaves Scott Drinkwater.

Re: Was this the Storm's Best Ever Year as an Organisation?

At the time 2007 was an amazing season. The team lost only 3 games, had a bigger points differential than this year, and won all 3 finals easily. So I think that team was the best we have ever had. However , given the age of the big 3, the farewell for Cooper, the comeback of Billy, the records of C...
