Does Cheyse Blair keep his place in the squad in 2 weeks time or does Chambers come straight back into the team at his expense?

No, Chambers comes straight back in, Scott moves back to the left side

Our forward pack were outstanding this game. In particular Dale Finucane, Jesse Bromwich, Christian Welch and Felise Kaufusi. I thought Kenny was good when he got on too

Nothing to say except I’m so proud of the Storm.

That was full of heart. So much heart.

Agreed. They were on fire and ohhhhh what a game to lift in.

What makes this win even sweeter for me is we had the tenacity to bounce back from two incredulous refereeing decisions, both which resulted in try's against us, but also the non existent rub of the green.

Every bounce of the ball seemed to go the rabbits way. When Slater had the no try, I seriously started to wonder whether we were cursed.

We only got three dud decisions, the Soufs knock on that wasn't called, the soufs player being dragged over the line with a "second motion" and the forward pass. Glad to have the win and a cracking game either way.

Vunivalu's arguing with the ref was just as clever as Blairs back to the action with Soufs first try, and I like Blair - more than Chambers.
I was wondering with Blair not passing to JAC at all was a mistake, maybe they were just lulling the opposition into a false sense of security, and then the quick hands from Slater, brilliant.

A team effort, no passengers tonight.

Outstanding! Especially the pack!
Finucane, Kaufusi and Welch were outstanding. I didn't know Kaufusi and Welch had that sort of aggression in defense. Munster stood up when it counted and I thought Suli had his best game in a long time even with his howler in the first half.

Felise’s shot on Sam Burgess = Amazing.

And not just Felise... In that same tackle, Scott, Vunivalu and Finucane all we’re doing their absolute best to make solid contact. That desire to take on the Souths pack was sorely missing a month ago... but there in spades tonight.

Proud.

No, Chambers comes straight back in, Scott moves back to the left side




He shouldn't - he REALLY shouldn't, but I suspect he will.
He has some sort of incriminating evidence over Bellamy - for sure.

They are saying that Jesse Bromwich will get suspended for his chicken wing tackle on Inglis.

Your thoughts?

Are you talking about the one on GI? That wasn’t a chicken wing tackle at all. And the only person I’ve heard complaining about it is that moron Braith Anasta. Your allowed to grab hold of the arm, there was no twisting or anything like that
