as gall said we need to play for 80 minutes not 79

They dominated the play there was just an abundance of handling errors. Pretty easy to sort out. Add in the denied try plus take away the wrongfully awarded try and the score line would have read a lot different. If the Storm can fire up and play the way they did in those 3 minutes for a full match, they'll easily go all the way. The pace and skill of their play makers is immense - when they can hold on to the footy.

Storm have to rise above.

Winning in the final minutes shows determination but you got to remember it was Cronulla not a top side.

i can see the potential benefit of having the national coach coaching the "national" club. one would think they would be inspired to play well at club level to strive for a test jersey, but who knows..

as for folkes, i just think he would be a good fit. he's a fitness freak so you know the players will be well-conditioned, and he used to coach a forward-oriented game which would suit the warriors because you have the best forward talent coming through.

you know what's crazy? the sharks look like they'll have to travel to canberra to play the raiders in the first week of finals. who saw that coming? that is CRAZY. who would want to play the raiders first up? and down there.....

there is an overreliance on the storm's big 3 that i can see it being their undoing if one or more have a bad day. that's why i think manly are such clear favourites.. threats and gamebreakers all over the park - quality halves, the stewart brothers, killer, t-rex, choc..

Bgf it wasn't our big 3 that stood out last night. OK slater and cronk had good games, but Waqa, Hoffman and Lowrie had big ones too.

As for that injury comment, hopefully it's that useless **** Quinn that gets injured.

Also a third of our errors last night came from Manu, so many drops and bad passes.

I am not sure who it was but if you watch the highlights a cronulla guy scores and cameron smith throws the shoulder into him after the fact.

this is a good representation of who Cameron Smith is.

a ****

Seeing as our match is on at the same time as the doggies match, I doubt they will rest anybody. Unless of course they are happy to settle for second place.

Man I would love to see north Qld win and manly lose this weekend.

hmm good point young padawan, though i don't think the coaches care that much about the minor.. you's are guaranteed 2nd and bellamy has already said he's thinking about resting some players

definitely don't want manly to drop out of the top 4. first week final between them and the dogs would be bruising.. hope they bash each other up real good.

Manly v Bulldogs game is looking so much better than Manly demolishing the Storm.

I dont think it would be up to the players. Slater was rested last year and the Dally M was line ball.

Gonna rip a wiki quote here because I couldn't quite remember the sequence of events:

The Storm defeated Manly 34–8 in the 2007 Grand Final but lost to in the 2008 re-match in a history-making 0–40 loss. To add to the rivalry, Melbourne beat Manly 40–12 in the opening final of the 2009 finals series, ending their bid to be back-to-back premiers.


Also 26-22 was the score when we beat your team at home earlier this year. See you in the finals

I'm definitely picking a big name coach to be signed for next year considering that our current owners have a lot of money to invest int he club.

Bellamy is off contract at the end of 2013 from what I hear

This is the main reason the Roosters haven't paid Smith out - they want to lure Bellamy to Easts for the start of 2014 so they'll hold Smith for one more season (and use Taylor if they have to) in the hope Bellamy comes to Bondi rather than Bro Hi.
