Gotta love some people on here. In a month we’ve gone from being the worst team in the history of the game, with players and staff having to be axed at once, to results now being called 24 hours before the game.
There are endless variables in a game, anything and everything could happen in that 80 minutes. Based on the two sides on paper, should we win? Of course. Funny thing is though, games aren’t played on paper.
The biggest fear I have of this game is a Melbourne side which already gets every call go their way, being even further protected by the officials. The Storm seem to get every 50-50 decision and sometimes not even ones that close go their way, more so at home.
The best hope would be to get the game out to a somewhat unattainable lead, because like always since Hollywood Harrigan has been the boss, games need to have a heightened level of drama, most of the time being due to the refs.
Probably best not to count our chicken’s just yet.
