Re: Ex Storm Players 2018

Widdop has confirmed 2019 will be his last year in the NRL. He has signed with the Wolves.

Re: New players for 2019

Vete definitely. His only game after signing last year was outstanding. Ran with a lot of intent. I was surprised that he wasn't given another crack, especially with our patchy forward form in the back end of the season.

Re: New players for 2019

Both Finch and Kasiano were both seen by most pundits as well past their best when we signed them. So do you count them as "rep players" we have signed? Kas hasn't played for NZ since 2013 (unless you count Tonga?).

Michael Crocker was a legit Origin player that we recruited.

Re: NRL Players Misbehaving

I don't see it as a 'player behaving badly' as such (people are free to do what they want in the privacy of their own home), but the Napa tapes are quite embarrassing...

Hopefully it comes out who leaked them.

Re: New players for 2019

The only thing that worries me is our forward pack dropping off so sharply last year. In 2017 we had the top pack and looked near unstoppable. Last year though, it felt we were dominated most weeks. McLean was a loss but that doesn’t explain it entirely. Attitude??? We were second last (of all NRL t...

Re: New players for 2019

Huge investments have been made in our young guys. Our recruitment would be the lowest in the NRL, but I would think our talent turnover would also be one of the lowest in the comp.

Re: Cam here or not?

I think Cam will spend more time in a second receiver role at times in games. At least I hope so. Give Brandon some space to develop his own game at hooker. Plus our backline set plays (and even off the cuff footy), can look sharp when Smith plays that link role. It’s a delicate balancing act though...

Re: 2019 Storm Squad

Again they left out Sandor.

I'm hoping we get a look at Tino in first grade this year.
