Both teams won today - Easts 44-10and Falcons 18-6. 13 Storm players played, including all 4 who played in the under 20 game on Wednesday ( Ryan P, Louis G, Harry G and Tino F). Tries to Olam, Earl and a double to Seve.

Judging by the interchanges on the QRL site, all the boys got through ok.

The under 20s had a bye.

Actually 14 Storm players were in QCup yesterday. Kelma Tuilagi came up from the 20s to play for Easts. Good to see.

17 Storm players played QCup today ( Easts lost 16-14 to the top team, Falcons won 40-18 against the bottom team. Alas Sandor Earl went off after 20 mins, not to return. No idea the issue, but really hope he will be ok.

According to QRL website, Sandor has hurt his knee again, albeit not as seriously as before. Poor lad.

He answered my tweet he didn't want to miss country week and playing with Riley and Rhys ...it was the cork he got last week he couldn't run without it hurting got though 20 minutes before he couldn't run at all

I'd suggest he wouldn't play next week

Thanks Sallymay. That is great news. A cork is so much better than a knee injury.

Teen shines despite Easts narrow defeat

melbournestorm.com.au
Mon 23 Jul 2018

Easts Tigers were left to rue a poor first half as they fell 16-14 at the hands of the Redcliffe Dolphins on Saturday.

The Tigers completed at just 50 per cent and committed several costly handling errors in the opening 40 minutes, leaving them unable to claw back the eight-point deficit at the break.

A shining light though came in the form of Tino Faasuamaleaui.

The 18-year-old Storm development player came off the bench to play 38 consecutive minutes and proved a handful throughout for a Dolphins side full of NRL-calibre talent.

"Tino was outstanding, he is coming on very well," Easts coach Scott Sipple said.

"His carries were strong and Redcliffe couldn't handle him. He was one of our best with his carries and the energy he bought off the bench was good for the boys.

"He is big and he wants to compete. You can just tell he is fearless, he wants to go out there and run hard.

"This kid is not too far off NRL if he keeps working hard."

REDCLIFFE DOLPHINS 16 (Scott Schulte 2, Jonus Pearson tries; Bryce Donovan 2 goals) def EASTS TIGERS 14 (Albert Vete, Scott Drinkwater, Jarrod McInally tries; Brodie Croft goal) at Gilbert Oval, Goondiwindi.

Grant dominates in Falcons triumph

melbournestorm.com.au
Mon 23 Jul 2018, 05:51 PM

Storm youngster Harry Grant was a shining light as the Sunshine Coast accounted for the Mackay Cutters with a big 40-18 win.

Grant continued his rapid development this season with an impressive display that produced an equal team-high 38 tackles and 123 total run metres.

New Storm recruit Tom Eisenhuth put in a strong 80-minute performance while Ryley Jacks slotted back in well at Intrust Super Cup level, partnered alongside his brother Rhys in the halves.

However it was the 20-year-old hooker who stole the show.

"The best player from a Melbourne perspective was Harry Grant," Falcons coach Craig Ingebrigtsen said.

"He just did his job and guided us around really well for a young man. The composure he shows is beyond his years.

"I was really happy with Harry again, his off the ball stuff is really good. He is magnificent and a really good player, he deserves a lot of accolades from his performances.

"The longer the season goes he is making less and less errors.

"I am very happy with Harry, whatever he gets out of the back end of the season he deserves."

SUNSHINE COAST FALCONS 40 (Matt Soper-Lawler 2, Harry Grant, Justin Olam, Ryley Jacks, Lachlan Roe, Ryan Papenhuysen tries; Ryan Papenhuyzen 6 goals) def MACKAY CUTTERS 18 (Blake Atherton, Nathan Saumalu, Nicholas Brown tries; Nicho Hynes 3 goals) at Denison Park, Bowen.

Sandor has been picked in QRL this week, which is great.
