So you don't want to see NAS at fullback for a week? Well I'm pretty sure you're not a real fan.

:D

Storm website with an article discussing the 5/8 role up for grabs this week. Bellamy has suggested Hughes is competing with Jacks with a decision to be made at the Captains Run.

Putting Hughes anywhere but FB is an unwise move - his momentum is based on fb performances, it's a different kettle of fish in HB.

Also the discussion re: utility on the bench. If Hampton could secure that spot, given what his performances were like... Hughes is more than worthy of this

No idea but it has to be an Accor property

Novetel
Sofitel
Pullman
Ibis

Anyone of the 4

A wet night expected so the battle through the middle becomes even more important. Gotta stop the freight train that is Taumalolo and get through our sets.

Possession, kicking game, field position and the ability to hold onto the pill are the keys to victory in this one.

I remember thinking after the game I thought we contained Taumalolo pretty well, checked his stats and it was 25/260m and laughed.

Not sure what to expect tonight. Short turnaround, travel, and coming off a high from last Sunday. Might need to grind one out.

Have to wonder why recruit Myles if we aren't going to play him.

Fully understand why Jacks was picked but damn I'd have loved to have seen Hughes again.

Already carrying 4 props. Hard to see Myles get a gig unless of an injury.
