The refs are Shayne Hayne and Gavin Badger. With Simpkins in the video box.

Hayne comes in for Archer who sustained an injury during the week, something to do with his ankle I think I read.

Turners defense is, at times, awesome.

Most under-rated plater at the Storm now that Geyer has left. ;-)

regarding the two ref system - anyone see when they interviewed Hayne and Badger on the Footyshow last night?  I don't like how they've stated that as they are both experienced refs, the split of control will be a lot more even with these two, whereas if it was for example Hayne with a rookie, it would be more like 80/20 - surely there needs to be clear guidelines for the way the system is designed to work
Storming our way to glory!

I know the ticketek site is not always the most reliable as at times blocks of tickets are held back but I just had a look to get an idea on how pre-sales are going and the only tickets now available are General Admission!

This is the first time I have seen all reserved seating and reserved area fully unavailable!

maybe spoilers****









dont want to be too negative about the first round...but deadset, i didnt think quinn could get worse.  Tomane >>>> quinn. From the day we signed him i knew it was a bad idea.

Other then dopey who cant hold a ball, tackle or play the ball the right way i think we are doing ok. Havent had much ball...the refs are letting them lay around the ruck forever. GI is doing well, Tolman and proctor are going very well in defence. We need to stop the penalties and make some ground and then use cronk more. and dont go near quinns side ffs. :lol:

Cam and Coops have kept it pretty tight - a lot of short passing to players running onto the ball, not a lot of sideways movement

I'm thinking the game will open up in the second half and we will see the ball pushed wide of the ruck.

Geez, isn't Koopu playing out of his skin tonight.

He was robbed of that line break in the first half, but I have been very impressed with this young guy tonight.

EVENING BOYS AND GIRLS!!! THUNDERSTRUCK IS BAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAACKK!!  ;D ;D ;D

WHOA, what a game that was huh? Heart in mouth stuff again like the Storm of old, I hope it was just rusty gears needed some oiling. We certainly missed the senior players but the Worms were pretty determined there near the end. I hate the extra time golden point.

But hey, WE WON! WE BLOODY WON OUR FIRST GAME OF THE SEASON! :D :D :D

One word. Ordinary.

What a gaping hole Crocker, Geyer, Smith and Folau have left. There are guys running around in our team tonite that are not and never will be first graders. In no particular order they are:

Isa
Hinchcliffe
Proctor
