Round 10 - Cowboys vs Storm

Postby yourhero » Tue May 10, 2016 5:49 pm

Melbourne Storm v North Queensland Cowboys
Saturday 14 May, 5:30pm
Suncorp Stadium

1. Cameron Munster
2. Suliasi Vunivalu
3. Tohu Harris
4. Ben Hampton
5. Cheyse Blair
6. Blake Green
7. Cooper Cronk
8. Jesse Bromwich
9. Cameron Smith ©
10. Jordan McLean
11. Kevin Proctor
12. Felise Kaufusi
13. Dale Finucane

14. Kenny Bromwich
15. Tim Glasby
16. Christian Welch
17. Nelson Asofa-Solomona

Possibly Curtis Scott in for Hampton in the centres. Hampton to the bench. Welch out.

Or Scott to centre, Harris to backrow, Kaufusi to bench, Welch out.

There was talk of more than one outside back in contention for a return. How is Koroibete going? If good, direct swap for Blair.

The line I hear trotted out is that "Melbourne are the one team that has not played Brisbane or the Cowboys yet".

80 unanswered points in the last 2 rounds is comforting, but I think this will be a good chance to show our credentials. What will the critics say if we win, I wonder?

If we were playing the Broncos, I'd have $50 on Bennett's answer to that being, "Oh, the rep round had a massive detrimental effect on us. Rep round is stupid, blah blah blah"...

There is no bigger whinger in the game but he doesn't get the recognition for all of his hard work.

He's into whinging for the love of it, he doesn't care if others get the plaudits

Just a thought for the upcoming Origin period, I notice that Jake Turpin is playing Q Cup for the second straight week. Is he a chance for seniors?

Can't see Bellamy picking Morgan without him having some game time in Qld Cup.

They can say all they like but we're nine weeks in and we've been scheduled to play the Worriers and the Tits twice in that time, who's fault is it?

JT always worries me, all the way back to when he was a newly promoted (to the first grade side) Bullgrub, he's been very good at tearing us apart.

Oh well, we're the home team that should count for something. ..?...

The criticism is fair when we've also lost both our games against the two top 8 teams we've played. We have also looked very ordinary until our last two games, which have been against team who've been awful. This week is a big test. Don't expect us to win but if we're competitive it'll be a good sign given most of backline is out.

This is where the metal meets the meat. We will know on Saturday night if we are premiership contenders.

Well it's good to know where we're at. Makes sense given we're playing the defending premiers/one of the benchmarks of the league.
