The boys had it yesterday and especially at a time when we needed it. We had our backs to the wall for most of the first half yesterday and at times we didn't help ourselves. Like when Ox dropped the ball on the very first set, I was tearing my hair out just seconds into the match. We than had to repel the Storm for four consecutive sets. But our defence was very assured and at no stage in those four sets did the Storm look threatening. We made some poor errors in our own half in that first half but it was our committed and enthusiastic in defence which kept us in the contest. When things turn to S**t it's amazing what desire can do for you. Backs against the wall yet we went into the half time break with an 8 point lead. We then held on courageously when the Storm had so many opportunities in the last quarter to grind out one of our best wins of the season. It was a huge occasion and for us personally it was a huge hoodoo to break. Foran is a young champion. It's hard for a kid to come into the business end of a season under such pressure and just not crack. In his first game he had monster motherF**kers running at him and he was taking each one down like a piece of weetbix. Scored a memorable try on debut and now has four to his name in just six appearances. The kid has the right amount of enthusiasm, aggression and posesses the will to win. He is also very safe as a player and injects himself appropriately. He is one player who definitely deserves his spot in the top grade. Time for a little novelty. Some of you wanted to see it and it finally happened. Ox kicked a 40/20 this season. Also showed creativity to kick a 60 metre grubber from a kick off to force a drop out. I had a good laugh when it slipped through Cronk's hands. We than chased it and threw it forward as it was going over the dead ball line hoping that the referees would miss the most obvious forward pass ever. To top it off he stumbled and nearly tripped over some padding that the sponsors use. We're 5th now with two home games (one against the hapless Sharks) on Sunday afternoons. I daresay we have an ideal platform to launch ourselves into this years final series. The game against the Storm was our most difficult in the run home. It's lucky we got it out of the way three weeks away from the finals. You wouldn't want to be playing a game like that on the eve of the finals. We're not quite there yet but the signs are very positive.
