The storm defence plan is risky but it works. Having a defender running up out of the line to take the ball player out is brave. If your outside backs are up for the cover. Tackling from Neilson and Chambers was superb

Cronk winning the Churchill medal?

Played well but it was Smith for me - but wtf does this Pom know?

James Graham must of been thinking he was a real bulldog there for a moment. There is no place for that sort of act in any sport.

Well done the storm, you were the better team on the day.

That was one of the best GFs IMO. Tense right up until about the 75th minute.

Barba only really came into it quite late as they just didn't give him the chance to shine.

Smoth, Cronk, Whiddop, Slater, Chambers, Nielson & Lowrie were really impressive. They'll be hard to beat next year as well of the majority of them stay together.

I'll accept that I am dumb, but I am convinced more than ever, that Bellamy is on his way over. If not, I'll believe that to be true until Wednesday when the news is released!

Lowrie played awesome tonight. Great buy for the Warriors if he turns that sort of effort next year.

You can't go wrong with the kind of defense the Storm applied tonight. Even if they do go around you, they will have to go backwards first and that gives time for cover from the middle. Of course for this sort of defense, you need smart and agile outside backs, and that's why the Warriors are hopeless on the edges.

Credit to the Storm for their play tonight. played a great match against a Bulldogs outfit who looked a little intimidated by what was in front of them. Can't agree to biting ears, nor Archer being a referee, but correct winner grated tonight. Congrats Storm.

You're not dumb. You actually could be very close to the mark. Bellamy to me looked happy, relieved, like a weight is off his shoulders. He has given Melbourne what they wanted, a legal premiership. That performance tonight can't be beaten. It was complete, great tries and great defence forcing the opposition to at times result in..dog tactics. Hasler has broken the records by going back to back in 2 GF's with 2 different clubs. There is a challenge there if Bellamy wants it

The way the Storm edge defense ran up on the Dogs forwards. The Dogs just had no answer. I hope Dane can bring that form in defence here. Lowrie was also at it all night, tough game shown by Lowrie. Storm's kicking game was the shite. Their halves shat on the Dogs halves from a great height. Deserved winners, literally drove the Dogs into a grind, in which the Storm rarely get beaten. It would take a special team to out grind the Storm, (Hint-Hint) a special team indeed.

It opens the door for Bellamy, if he's ever going to leave, it has to be now. Just a perfect way to sign off.

Damn does this win now mean the Storm can join their ex-team mate in Jeremy Smith and finally call themselves champions?

I feel kinda sorry for the NRL fans, if the Warriors were in the 8 everyone could have been spared these scenes of Storm players man hugs and crying, the world must be truly coming to a end.

And what about Inu, lucky charm or something else?? Dude must be . . . . . chilling like he usually does, just 'another game' right?

No . .. . .. . I havent had much to drink and am not still bitter. . . . . . .
