It's a big ask considering the opposition, but then again I never thought we really had much chance against the Roosters last week either, and the Storm have never really humiliated us like the Roosters have in previous seasons, so I guess it's possible.

We can do anything. They just have to break the game down and not think of 80 minutes, but rather the next ten, then re focus for the next ten. Control and aggression might just see us stay with this mob. I think the close to the line kicking game is going to be absolutely critical given we don't seem to have absolute weapons in our backs.

Of course we can. We are are the new Wests Tigers with with the right attitude and determination to play as a team.
At the very least we will push them for the 80.

We can push Melbourne especially if the forwards aim up and take the game to them. At some stage this year we’ll string a series of wins together, what better time to start then now.

We go ok against the Storm, not sure about at home though.
We'll need to score more than 10 points though and that's what bothers me.

I'll be happy to see us get in their faces and really hustle them in defense and not let up and see what that results in.

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.

Urgh. Just got sucked into watching a Bonstonker Lawrence highlight reel. Geebus, he was quick. Heartbreaking. Also to see Lui setting up so many.

Never have won a game in Melbourne, the question should be 'can we ever win in Melbourne"? because they are pretty much unbeatable there

Oops my bad... The game I was thinking about was at Bluetongue of all places. Remember the 2011 game now, Melbourne didn't have their origin players and we were very average.

Yes I think we have only ever won in Melbourne once and we were very lucky to win it, they had all their origin players out. we always get SMASHED when playing in Melbourne, we usually always beat them at home. last year we SHOULD have been them at home but a BS video ref call turned the game and we did out usual 'lets let 2 trys in before halftime when a call goes against us' and before you know it we lost

actually it was 2012 the one we won and it was 10-6 one of the ugliest games ever, then when it really matters to make the 8 we got smashed by the storm at home in the final round Benji was pathetic in his final game for us.

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.

I can’t see it happening, but you never know. I’m very confident about the two weeks after that. I think we’re specials against the Broncos.

Broncos and eels are more winnable, but I'm not sure if any NRL game is easy when you start the season as spoon favourites!
