Storm vs Sharks

Postby storm_rhinos » Sun Sep 21, 2008 8:03 am

Hoffy is doubtful for this game, redone the same injury that has kept him out the other week.

Yeah, he was rushed back a bit early IMO, and it seems like it just isnt healed yet.

As was being discussed in the other thread i think cam will be out. There are a few options for his replacement, Aitken IMO will most likely come in. If hoffy is out aswell, then you would expect jezza to stay in the starting line up with Tolman or anderson coming onto the bench.

This game will be tough, but the sharks dont have a lot in attack...so i dont think we should be worrying too much there. Im confident we can win...but it will be hard without Cam, but mainly for the reason Aitken could replace him.

they are saying Cam gone for two matches, that would realy stuff us, even if we get over Sharks

Best chance is to contest the charge (assuming it eventuates) and get it downgraded.

We might be in a bit of bother injury and suspension wise

We've been in a bit of bother injury wise for some weeks now, especially with our substantial lack of depth.

just looked on ticketek and the storm supporter bays are 36,37,38,39,40,41.  Not sure we are going to have enough fans to fill all those.  It would be great to see us all in 1 or 2 bays though.  Any thoughts..??

i like hoffman but he has not be in the best form this season, not the biggest loss we could have had.


I think Crocker is fine in regards to the high tackle, just a regulation smack on the chin

I think we're still going to beat the sharks without Smith, they've got no attack and aslong as we don't have a 5-10 minute slip up like we did last time we played them then we should be fine, cause they didn't even look like scoring after that period when we played them in round 2-3.

Just can't give away penalties which we still done quite a bit last night. If we can make a comeback being one player down, then we can beat the sharks without smith ;)

Aitken can play as dummy-half, he ain't no Cam Smith, but he can do the job. In saying that, Storm will vigorously defend Cam and...you never know, Billy got one week for his little indiscretion. So u never ever know.

scott anderson warmed up as 18th man sat nite, so i would imagine he is in front of tolman to replace hoffman.

also they may put geyer into hooker, inglis to the centre's and aitken to five eight, just a thought

Anderson will replace hoffman I would think,

Tolman is the better long term prospect, but Anderson is physically  more mature and better suited for a tough foward exchange right now,

losing Cam will be a big blow, I would play Aitken at dummyhalf, so the rest of the side stays settled,

but they may go for the Geyer option

Gee our depth is being tested, in pervious seasons we had Aubussun and Friend as reserve hookers , think last year at the Gf we had Crossman and Blair as fowards who could'nt get a game.

if cam gets 2 weeks might as well appeal all the way and spend the $$ on thethe defence i am sure you could show heaps of equally bad tackles not to be punished

I got great tickets at 9:15 pretty much could pick my seat.  I love allocated bays! Got a great deal on a room in Sydney from the Channel 9 show holidays for sale, now just need to get decide if driving straight through on Friday!
