    And are just allowed to!

    If they attack our kickers etc like thugs...we need to do something about it...or just meekly lose.

    With fair refereeing...as always we have a chance.
    It frustrates me to no end that the commentators never say anything about their tactics during the game.

      Does anyone on here with real insider knowledge have any idea on the true extent of Cronk's injury?

      I know a couple of you knew in advance that Momiovski would be playing last week, and so I was wondering if again you were in the know considering Coops?

        This is where we should be using Latrell as he has a big boot and as a bonus is a lefty which opens up the other side of the field. Smith is great at putting pressure on kickers and I fear he will be all over Keary all night.

          The Cronk situation has really rocked my confidence.
          With a fully fit halfback my only concern was the game managers running with the nrls sickening agenda.

            As much as I would also love to know, I don't mind if we keep that info off these pages. I'm happy that it's kept in house. The walls have ears Ö.

              The club are being extremely secretive about Cronk. Couple of my contacts have been given absolutely nothing.

                  My gut tells me that we have got this one. Similar to a Rocky Vs Creed scenario. Maybe there is a bit of finesse missing aka Mini, Jennings, SBW etc... But the hunger and desire may be even stronger this week than in 2013. We have the power to put the drizzle's lights out.

                    We have been following this team a long time and been listening to Robbo and the boys preach defence and winning on a weekly basis,whereas the so called experts havenít hence why they are all backing the obvious..

                    But we know the team we have,the attacking brilliance,the tough no nonsense defence and the Coach with the game plan to unravel the Storm.

                    We will win!

                        Agree using Latrell for long kicks but seriously doubt his finesse. His boot is that big i would worry about 7 tackle sets - let him kick only in our own 30 or towering bombs. Even 70m out he could put it dead.

                          Yeah, lol.....but the storm are a bit like creed. The bloated, showboating, untouchables of the league! Themselves and their cronies think they turn up on Sunday and win. Not on our watch, they don't. Wait and see!

                            but Creed became a good guy - that wont happen with the rule bending, judiciary dodging, salary cap cheating lowlifes that are the storm. Cam Smith the worst of the lot - ill never forget him arguing the penalty when McKinnon broke his neck. But somehow - because he is a once in a generation player this all gets overlooked - he's got the whole world fooled. Karma anyone!

                                Not surprising, we have been grossly looked out this week. In almost every respect we havenít received much love. Ah well no pressure, letís just get out there and show them what weíre capable of.
