I have heard a rumor that Cronk is playing with broken ribs.

Bromwich is the only forward doing anything. That's our problem. 93m in first half.

Refs definitely lacking consistency. Not a lot of difference between our obstruction no try and their try.

Completion rate 12/18 not good enough. Storm particularly when we got behind started playing "Matt Orford" footy... trying to score off every pass... eg we had two quick play balls in a row and Green tried to pass to Harris when he should have taken the tackle

Along with 2 errors, a forward pass to McLean and a bombed try, he definitely turned it around in the 2nd half, MOTM, him and Munster our best, great 2nd half fightback!!

Ugly, frustrating game.

Big effort from J Brom, Tohu and Munster.

I have never seen Fonua run the ball so limp. Not sure what he was doing but when we were desperate for hard running, his speciality was nowhere to be seen all game.

And... exhale. ...

J-Brom was best for mine. ....Green not far behind. Munster was great too - is it possible for us to keep him? Or will other clubs be circling now?

And how about that pass from Will? Good stuff!

I thought Tim Glasby was good off the bench too.

Cam Smith ran the ball more and had more metres than Proctor. Can someone legit tell me what Proctor does well ? Glasby out plays him every game.

Mann and Munster ;D

Green was very solid too. Cronk continues to have a slow start to his season.

Munster is here until the end of 2017. He ain't going nowhere.

Might have to eat my words on Mann. He's playing quite well.

I was very frustrated with Proc today. He seemingly does not get involved except for set plays... Most of our attacking was down Proc's edge and he still barely had a run.

2017? Well that's good to know :) Hopefully there's no compassionate grounds shenanigans!

Yeah Kurt was good too. .. I won't even pick on him for that thing he didn't do seeing as we scored anyway ;)

He has a lot of padding under his jersey the last few weeks.
