Munster, JAC and NAS were all outstanding. Particularly Munster... again. Having quite a year.

Not sure Smith or Kenny get selected but if they do, surely they won't get big minutes for NZ. I'd expect them both to back up off the bench.

NAS though is another story. He's a huge loss with Jesse and Dale out injured. I can't see Glasby being selected off that performance, which should help.

Was not much going on in the play. Kick needed to be just a bit better and everyone would've been fine with the result. Was a better than anything the halves did in the first half too haha.

Knights only completed at 63% as well. Made it easier and somewhat flattered us.

They seemed to come up with an error every time they created a chance to get points.

But it almost never is. That's kind of the f*ckin' point.

Glasby could still be selected for QLD because they have a lot of forwards with injuries.

It was amplified by what had come before it. Horrible last play options/not getting to a proper attacking kick.

Chambers has a strong history of grubbering for himself/with nobody else knowing what is going on.

Yea, I'm just not going to get mad over one kick after our halves did a whole bunch of nothing in the kicking department before that.

NAS the only Storm player in NZ team.

Brandon Smith hurt his thumb in making just about his first tackle in the game. He had it strapped at HT and played on, but you could see in the dressing room he was clapping his wrist not his thumb during the celebration, and Craig mentioned it in the press conference. So that might mean time on sidelines, which is not good. Glasby was however back in 3 weeks, so hopefully it is no more serious than that.

RobbieRoss, we really have had some injuries so far this year

Not really settled at all.

Munster, Addo Carr and Cam Smith were All world stand outs v Newy.

Something from Round 15 that was beautiful to watch. Storm held "Parents Round".

I knew the club had done things like this before, but I was unaware that it was an annual thing. Just another great idea by the club to build that sense of family and belonging - particularly for the guys that can feel isolated.
