    We'll need to be a lot better than what we just saw, but very happy to be getting Melbourne in Melbourne in Round One.

    Held on to the ball in the second half, scored 4 tries. Granted, at least the last two of Glenn's were down to the awful defensive reads of Ash Taylor (the first one I didn't see).

    I was laughing at the last try. I though "I don't know who that fat prop is that scored, but he supported really well". You guys were right about Kennar needing to lose a few.

    If Glenn needs to start in game 1 so does Niko.

  7. "Glenn then pounced on a Sean O’Sullivan in the 59th minute"

    Wonder how Sean felt about that?

    1. Boyd
    2. Oates
    3. Roberts
    4. Bird
    5. Isaako
    6. Milford
    7. KNik
    8. Lodge
    9. Macca
    10. Joffa
    11. Glenn
    12. Fifita
    13. Gillett

    Haha I thought the same thing about the fat prop, and was shocked when they said Richie Kennar scored. I was like man that guy has some toe for a fat bloke.

    Closest player I could think of with that body shape was Mago, but don’t think he was playing.

    If fit, I’m expecting to see:

    1. Boyd
    2. Oates
    3. Roberts
    4. Bird
    5. Isaako
    6. Milford
    7. Nikorima
    8. Lodge
    9. McCullough
    10. Ofahengaue
    11. Glenn
    12. Gillett
    13. Pangai Jnr
    14. Carrigan
    15. Fifita
    16. Sua
    17. Stages
    Think the heat is on a few in the first month. O’Sullivan looks to be, at worst, a competent NRL half and should be pushing Nikorima (Dearden could be flat out special but yet to drink a legal beer yet). Isaako should be close to replacing Boyd at 1 if Seibold has the gonads to do it (which he should). Bird and Roberts both under pressure from Staggs.

    Bring on the proper season. I cannot f***ing wait for a new era and hopefully a new attitude.

    Melbourne have lost Scott Drinkwater to a torn pec. That should help our cause

    **** that I just want to smash the ****... don't care if they send out the sunny coast Falcons or their full strength squad just destroy those pricks

    Drinkwater hasn’t looked overly special anyway, will be interesting to see who Bellamy goes with in the 1.
  16. Yeah, I actually thought for a second that was Mago but then there was a close up and I got confused until I looked up the team list.

    Hughes would be my guess, good player imo

    It will take a few rounds for the team to gel and click with one another but I'm expecting a tough, gritty, win at all costs attitude. Tough D, solid attack throwing good shape and minimal penalties with excellent ball control. That's all I'm expecting against our bogey side Melbourne.

    I don't think you can get all that in the first round of the season. Or even the first month and a bit of the season. Teams will always start rusty. Just not giving away dropped ball or penalties and winning the power game should be enough to win.

    Storm losing in NQ and the boys just getting home can only spell disaster for our opener against them at AAMI.
    They will target the unsettled Bird and run all sweeping plays down the left edge.
    Milf returning underdone will also cop a lot of defensive pressure.
    Whoever slots in for Billy will do a hell of alot better than our limp fullback, whilst their hooker controls the game (and the refs) to his whim.
    Storm 13+
