    jjai I have no idea how you think they are over the cap with that squad.

    They won't make the finals.

    Broncos deserve early favouritism for the title in '11 IMO.

    They must have paid a fortune to lure Mitchell Johnston away from cricket.

    Beat me to it.

    He is still contracted to the Western Warriors and Cricket Australia at the moment.

    Didn't know his contract was up already

    Some of those young no names are very talented. They also have a very good record of turning nobodys into world beaters. So you never know they could surprise a few people next year. I hope I'm wrong and they fail though.

    They will no doubt, but not for a few years.

    Its easy to develop one or two players quickly when you have a confident, talented squad around them. They no longer have that.

    the problem is Des can tend to have the opposite effect at times.

    Watmough for example.

    Watmough  hasn't needed Des' help to turn into a chump. He is pretty good at doing it all by himself.

    Next year I want Storm to miss the 8 purely on their (lack of) merits, and am reasonably confident that will happen.

    They still have plenty of quality but their depth has taken a very large hit. Their intensity might not be so easy to recapture either, after playing so many games this year in a pretty relaxed style with zero pressure. Hope they flop.
