    Storm update

    Melbourne duo Billy Slater and Ben Cross remain in doubt for Sunday's Grand Final after both failed to complete training today.

    Slater is being hampered by a knee injury and Cross a hamstring, both training on their own away from the main group. Today was the Storm's first field session since Sunday's preliminary final win over Parramatta.

    Most concern seems to surround Slater, the Storm fullback taking longer than expected to get over a medial ligament strain.

    Meanwhile, the minor premiers say they don't know what all the fuss is about after they became embroiled in yet another furore over their tackling technique.

    The latest manoeuvre has been labelled the `ripper tackle', which led to Parramatta skipper Nathan Cayless suffering a torn pectoral muscle in last Sunday's preliminary final. Cayless had his arm wrenched behind him as Storm prop Brett White attempted to put the Kiwi forward on his back.

    Storm forward Clint Newton said the latest controversy was just an attempt to unsettle the Victorian side.

    Referees boss Robert Finch admitted grand final whistleblower Tony Archer would be limited in how he could punish the ripper tackle, claiming the only penalty that could be given would be for going on with the tackle too long.

    Another cop out from the Finch family. Surely any form of dangerous play is a penalty. I guess for Finch it's OK to rip someones arm off. He's a complete waste of space, as is his son.

    I dont know it is kind of hard to police really, what is the difference between the intentional one and the unintentional one?

    But Slater out is a massive bonus. Think I might put a punt on for this game
