Maybe I am being overly critical but how much rubbish is allowed in the ruck by the Storm tonight?
Second efforts on the ball, dropping knees, grappling arms. Its all coming back
Hear the warriors player “stop feeling sorry for them” to the ref
heh…that was Luck. i had jsut finished saying to myself, that the ref’s calls were biased for those first couple of penalties. he was definitely feeling sorry for them.
we are playing just as awesome as we did last week
for those saying that this is stupid for the storm to be playing - think about the teams they’ve already played. i think letting the storm play with their illegal players, keeps it fair for the teams they’ve already played this season.
Problem with getting them under the cap is that is not really possible to do so.
Your Top 25 are your 25 highest players and as they have played this year they are the playing roster. You can’t pay them out and bring up new guys as they would still be over the cap.
That and it’s not just the stars with the extra payments. it is all of the mid level players they have been able to be kept because of the lesser money the books had the stars making.
I just wish we all played each other twice than it would be as simple as giving every team who plays them two points
Oh and it wasn’t exactly the same side with Isa, Widdop and Duffie bought in from State Cup.
Bellamy already put McDougall back in State Cup and it will be interesting to see how heavily they load up players in that comp in order to win it
Gallop has to put his pride on the shelf and admit he made a hasty decision and stuffed up and fix this right away. I
mo he is punishing every other team that plays the Storm for the rest of the season.
Gallop be a man admit you are wrong make them adjust there team until they are under the cap then make them start from 0 and let them gain points, if they are still good enough to make the semis and win the comp after that then they deserve it. It’s the only solution.
The way it is now is a joke and every team that gets beaten by them while they are fielding this team should absolutely blow up and complain to the NRL. Imo opinion if Gallop doesn’t change his decision he has destroyed this season because every week teams are going to be asking why are they still allowed to field this side and effect my teams chances of making the finals. I know if they beat the Tigers and we miss the 8 by two points i’ll give up on this game and thats the honest truth.
