The Roosters were the favourites to win the premiership this year and we beat them when many thought we couldn't and Wouldn't
So realistically we can beat anyone
This place is going to go off if we have another win this weekend
:pray:
we were nearly always very competitive against them, we just need to minimise our errors, and play for each other :sign:
I would not be surprised that 1 pico second attention span experts on this forum proclaim: "I've seen enough', 'Wooden spoon', and another familiar show of support on this forum :bash

If we show the same grit and determination the score doesnt matter to me to be honest. I am hopeful however.

I think our bench is better than storms bench the only one on the Storms bench we should worry about is Kasiano

Have you seen their team. They have talent all over the park, it's Slater's 300th game and it's at their home ground.

We can win but you wouldn't bet on it.
Yeah the same thing was said about the Roosters
No one apart from Diehard supporters gave us a chance
No only that we did it without Reynolds Aloiai and Brooks in the bin for 10
I am Happy for us to be the underdogs

We've only ever won once in Melb
..................... about time we win again.
Was that when Benji got injured and Rowdy played 5/8 and killed it?
I think that was another game at Leichhardt. Laurie picked up a loose ball and went through half their team from a standing start.

The one where we won at Melby, Benji played the whole game. The "greasy pig" Utai scored a try by literally just ducking his head under a tackle.
The game you blokes are talking about was in Gosford , Hodgson was missing

The Melbourne game that kills me and cost us top 8 was either when Ellis passed to Laurie or vice versa with no one in front of them and they dropped it cold and they would of scored under the black dot

I remember a game when

Only way we win if is Brooks runs the ball more - he needs to think run first

Yea, I wouldn't put money on us but we could win it.

I noticed that we have a good record against the Storm, to win we need to defend and Robbie Farah seemed to be good at getting in their face. Not sure how Godinet would go against Smith who is such a benchmark, Smith won't be run down.
I can see our forwards just keeping up to the Storm's pace... but just. Switching hooker is tough and We should use Taylor not Mcillwrick as the reserve against Smith.

We need 80 minutes of Solid Defense, A matchup of MWZ vs Josh Addo Carr will be interesting but I don't see MWZ and Kevie defending against them on that wing. Marsters and Thompson, yes... Kevie and MWZ, No.

Not expecting a win, but happy for an upset. If we loose by less then 16 points and play for the 80 I will be happy.

If MWZ matches up with Addo-Carr we doing it wrong..they play on opposite sides of the field...

It's Ok tho MWZ and Kev will have their hands full with Vunivalu..

Wests Tigers by 8...

I want to see the storm play well, to assess if we can hold them to 2 tries or less, I'd love to see that pack mentality in defence again, especially in the forwards.

Having said that, I want us to score 19 tries, but think another low scoring tight game is our best shot.

I hope we are competitive but I expect the Storm to win comfortably. Their wingers will run around ours for sure.
