Why don't you write a match report and submit to the website for review? They may actually be interested in a fan written match report - the fact they don't do them may just be that no-one has ever suggested the idea.
It would certainly be good to read something posted by an interested observer rather than a club insider (who are obviously predominantly interested in the Storm side of things).

Why not try it here?

I'm interested and I know others are as well.

Give it a shot, it'll be fun.

I agree with TC. It would be great Sallymay if you could give us your thoughts on QCup matches. The club often has an agenda so might be talking up certain players. You would tell us what really happened !

Sallymay/scooter any reports on Papenhuyzen? Potential first grader next season? He still has 2 years left on his contract after this season but is he getting close? I imagine he would want Bill to hang them up to improve his chances.

And Drinkwater in the same boat? Although without a contract.

Seem to have a lot of guys in the backline not playing regular first grade (Jacks, Johns, Walters, Earl, Seve, Olam, Croft, Drinkwater, Papenhuyzen)

Papenhuyzen I think would be closer to first grade then Scott ...both have played pretty good this year

Scott has won a few games for Easts tigers with his kicking game he just needs to work on his defence a bit and combinations with players

Ryan hasn't played a lot of games this year. He had about 6/7 weeks off due to a bad concussion but when he does play he is the Falcons goal kicker and gets heaps of try's ...id love to see his get a shot in first grade but I don't think it will be anytime soon

That is very interesting, Sallymay, that you think Ryan is ahead of Scott at fullback . I had the impression Scott was ahead ( picked in the 21 a time or two ) but maybe he will struggle to get a contract with us next year. His other option at the start of the year was at 6 after Billy retires, with Munster switching to full back, but Jahrome looks like he will take the 1, with Munster staying at 6. You would think thus that only one of Papenhuyzen and Drinkwater will stay.. and as Lucas points out, Ryan has two years to go on his contract.

Looks like Scott had a good day today with a hat trick in a huge win by Easts. They scored 9 tries - -7 of them to Storm players, and Brodie kicked 5 goals.

Not sure who is in front of who ATM but how good was Scott today...and his second try AMAZING

I was told today apparently he might be going to the Knights so who knows

Sallymay- I see from the QRL website that Ryan Papenhuyzen went off after 75 minutes yesterday. Do you know what happened to him ?

Apparently he strained his oblique muscle, which is located in the stomach area. Not sure if he will be sidelined or not

Falcons lost today, Easts won.

Brandon went off with 5 minutes to go. Sallymay- just a rotation ?
