Could be a boil over in Melbourne. 28-12 @ 57 mins
have a win tomorrow and we are only two games out of equal first.
Hopefully Manly aren't complacent tomorrow.
So had we beaten the Storm (like we should have without Slater) three weeks ago, we would be playing for an equal share of the competition lead tomorrow.
They really have controlled the game, but they have to because they sure can't defend. Even without Slater and Smith Melbourne look to be a threat. And it's not like Melbs are doing anything special. If Furner could get these blokes to defend like a normal NRL team, they'd be scary. Their attack is so multi-dimensional. I mentioned Sam Williams as a possible for NSW in the future but we could do worse than Josh McCrone. He might be a good foil for Carney. Like Robson but with a killer passing game.
Good to see the raiders handing storm a hiding
Croker wouldnt be out of place in a nsw jersey either.
He's one i've always liked. My first pick in fantasy league. I think his defence is what keeps him out of origin but it's hard to tell what it's really like because the Raiders make each other look bad. They did throw a lot of forward passes though. They were almost Melbourne like in that regard.
Love it when the Storm get smashed, well done Raiders.
Anytime the storm are beaten its a good day. But one thing worries me......what if its a storm v dogs GF ? Cant stand the thought of either being premiers. Its worth praying for any other outcome.
apart from a souths gf win
Storm fall apart without dirty Cam Smith bending the rules.
Can kick goals too.
Step one - Injure Cameron Smith Step two - ???? Step three - Profit
That's all we need now the dogs to be minor premiers ffs.
Always love a good southpark reference. I was thinking canberra might win but I just couldn't bring myself to pick them. Plus I didnt know until 5 mins ago that grub boy smith was out. happy to sacrifice those 2 points to se the raiders win!
Just goes to show how effective Cam's forward passes from dummy half were Maybe the Refs will now apply the rules of league to the Scum!
Sean Fensom is another Canberra player I really like. Amazing work rate and good offload. Don't know what they'll do with Dugan when he comes back from injury, but Reece Robinson (who's their fullback now) is probably a better option - he's on fire. As is Blake Ferguson playing at centre. Seems to have found his position.
The last time Storm conceded 40 he was also missing.
