Melbourne flyer Josh Addo-Carr remains a recruitment priority but it’s understood Canberra’s Jordan Rapana is now also on the club’s radar.

I hope we are not going to target Rapana if we miss out on JAC.

Upgrading our pack should be our priority. Targeting JAC makes sense because he is quality and players of his class don’t come on the market very often. But if we miss out on him we should be chasing forwards.

Disagree strongly. Pace us our no 1 priority. We’ve got Tamou now we need JAC and Staines. Besides Kepaoa and Brooks, our backs are slugs.

I don’t agree Paws. We have had no problems scoring points. But we are monstered by most other packs. We just can’t contain their momentum and we have trouble getting out of our own half. We need better forwards.

that kid from NQ

Are you talking about Simpkins ? Have we got him.

Tamou is a good start, but Blore and Stefano are rookies. I hope they live up to our expectations.

@05TIGZZ said in Harry Grant:

He will definitely be missed. Come on Cam go around for another year.

Harry’s gone either way.

No matter what Cam Smith does, we won’t see both Brandon and Harry at the Storm in 2022. One of them will leave.

@hsvjones said in JAC:

So DT saying JAC might have to sit out a year because Storm won’t release him without a good replacement

Hopefully this is just DT garbage. It makes no sense.

I’d love to see WT try to do a double deal with Garner and Packer with WT paying a large part of Packer’s contract

Problem is that Manly is a bit too cold for Russel’s feet.

Thanks for this summary hodgo. It confirms what I have believed for some time. That is, that our problems begin and end with our pack. We were unable regularly to get out of our own end and we were unable to contain opponents’ momentum up the middle. The ease with which, for example, Manly and the Storm were able to roll up our middle was alarming.

When we did get some decent field position we were able to score tries.

We need to substantially upgrade our pack. Tamou is a start, but it is not enough.

I look forward to your individual player review.

@ElleryHanley said in Noffa - Fullback?:

He can’t read D and he can’t pass…

Perhaps, but regarding his passing, he doesn’t get many opportunities.

Was it the game against the Sharks that he got away from his opposite number and ran down the sideline, as the cover was closing he threw a beautiful pass inside to Garner, who scored. It was a pass of the highest quality.

That said, I think Nofo should stay on the wing.

@hobbo1 said in Brooks to Garner:

Another if only thread 😂 … but I’ll add to it …

Poor positional play from AJ cost them not Garner

That was my feeling as well. AJ was caught flat footed and was too far back.

@diedpretty said in My 2 cents on the Result:

"So we are the first team in 112 years to concede 26+ points for 10 games in a row’. That’s a bit of a furphy really. 4 point tries only came in in 1983. If we took it on the previous 75 years before 1983 only 4 out of the 10 would have been 26+. Typical media misinformation.

Not to mention that this is the first season we have had the referee calling set restarts. Put defence under a lot more pressure. That said, our defence has been very poor.
