How long are we supposed to wait for Melbourne to have a bad season? Seems overdue.
Imo it depends on how papi comes back from his knee injury and if Grant can handle the workload of a full nrl season without smith. Melbourne are now a bit thin on depth and any long term injury in their spine, especially to Grant, will ruin them.

They've lost a shitload up front too, Brommy x 2 and Kafusi.

And Grant is a bit injury prone.

lol sorry guys. Melbourne aren’t missing the 8. No matter how much we hope their forwards are light in depth. They have the best spine in the comp as usual.

Grant's only claim to fame is in 2020 when the Tigers were down on their luck, dicking around with Billy Walters at 9, Harry came in, took over the role and almost dragged them into the finals.

That’s his only claim to fame?

It's not that he forgot to sign it, it's that Billy Walters took it off Kevvie thinking Kevvie wanted him to sell it as a valuable piece of sports merchandise to supplement both of their meagre contracts, and it ended up getting framed and given to Wayne before Ben could sign it, further driving a wedge between Ben and Kevvie.

I feel like I’ve shown great restraint myself lately.
Same here. Especially after that bombshell that Smoothy is getting sent into hibernation. That one fits way too neatly into a narrative we've been at pains to restrict to a hypothetical.

The Storm have won their last 12 games against the Broncos... It's just an amazing record.

Time for that to end in 2023!
I tell you what would **** the Storm right up the arse, but also the NRL at the same time: enforcing a stipulation that clubs must carry a minimum (say 5) Top 30 players from their local catchment area. And no, QLD isn't Melbourne.
