It doesn't get any easier

Great win by the team today , truly inspirational

Just realized that because Slater didn't play this week that if he plays next round it will be his 300th game

Storm are scary good with big celebration games

I'll be honest , I reckon we are still a big chance , Storm showed they haven't got their bus in full swing just yet

It will require a smart game plan and perfect execution to beat them, but not many thought we would beat the rorters!

I haven't posted in a long time and i'm sought of knew to the forum but i think we are in a good space. We did dominate the so called favorites today. If you actually watched we played them all game. Roach kept saying our boys were looking lazy coz when we had the ball they couldn't get back in line. Why use energy running back if not needed. They are fit and ready. The Defense is impressive. The lack of scoring is because we played a good defensive side. Hey not as good as US!!!! Yeah baby Go Tigers. Just finished watching a replay of our top 28 plus the someones that no one wants but we do and i think that every team in the NRL should put their best boots on when they play us. Very impressed with Rockhow

It doesn’t get easier, but if this side shows up with the same attitude in defence we will win far more games than we lose. Games like that one breed confidence. The challenge now is to bring it every week.

It doesn’t get easier but the team will take a lot out of that performance today and know we can match it with the best. A lot to work on but we are a chance if we show up and put in for each other. If we keep playing with that commitment these next 4 weeks we can we can really set up our season.

Get the defence in order and the attack will follow

Cleary will have a game plan no doubt against the $torm

The draw is rigged but I'm sure the team is up for the challenge

You think so Capt Obvious... :roll:

Storm easily accounted for the Dogs at 33.33%..

Storm are going to be super tough...they look like they have lost nothing with cronks loss...but realistically no one gave us a chance yesterday, but looking at yesterdays performance ivans put together a unit that can compete now....so im giving them a real chance next week

The Dogs were in the game for a long time last night. If they can go toe to toe, so can we.

I thought dogs lost the game rather than storm win it. Storms defensive game weaker it seems atm but will be tough but we are due against them and have been competing with them last few years getting some bad decisions so a win is not out of the question.
After this win the have something to show for their belief so they can have a go with little to loose really.

Couple mistakes cost the dogs...once addo carr had the ball he was gone.
Nullify the wings and the rest will follow.

Just get an edge forward to run at brodie croft all day. He cant tackld to save himself.

Storm are beatable this year.

If we can snag 2-3 wins in the first 6 rounds we have a shot for the 8 because our last ten rounds are wll winnable games.

Brooks wasn't great in attack yesterday but both our halves defenders well. We will hammer the Storms Middle . If Cameron Smith starts turning our players around gaps might open up. Our scrabble was very good yesterday. Cammy will be up to his old tricks.

100%. I didn’t think the storm looked very polished at all.

Will need to have our edges on high alert with their wingers speed. Once they break the line they score more often than not.

Dogs were in the game for 60 minutes and the scoreline flattered the storm with it blowing out at the end.

Woods threw a bad offload with about 20 to go and storm didn't look back.

Great win against the Roosters and the boys should be proud
No one can take that away from us now
But Ivan will keep them settled because it all starts again next week against against the Storm
Our boys defence will be tested but will be up for the challenge and the Storm will have to fight for a win all game just like the Roosters
I would like to see Ivan reward the players by keeping the same team in this match

If Nofo was to come in I am not sure about a wing spot because of defensive issues

Would also be hard to leave Aloiai out but who do you drop

That's why I would keep the same team
What to you guys think
