    You know how some clubs just seem to struggle against one particular other? We haven't a lot of recent games against the Storm, but it strikes me that, particularly in sydney, we have the wood on them - even in the deepest, darkest days of our very worst sides.

    My recollection:

    2007 - We have beaten them in the only encounter
    2006 - We won here, they won away.
    2005 - We won here, famously, in Rd 3.
    2004 - We beat them in the last round.
    2003 - We beat them in Sydney, they flogged us in the last round when we were thinking Mad Monday.
    2002 - From memory we beat them.

    Interesting .............

    The one that worries me is the "You have to have been to one and lost one to win one

    and Lyon.

    That theory hasn't really held firm in recent years.

    Broncos 06 (prev GF 2000)
    Tigers 05 (prev GF 1989)
    Bullwogs 04 (prev GF 1998)
    Panfers 03 (prev GF 1991)

    there are a few consecutive losers in there though.

    more teams have lost consecutive grand finals than winning one after initially losing
