For sure. We CAN beat them. I remember not long ago, 3 weeks or so, being laughed at for suggesting the Storm will be contenders this year along with the Roosters.It's awesome that Melbourne do not intimidate us. They are prems so no exactly how to win big games.
Those are key qualities that WILLbe tested by Melbourne but are sure to test them right back.
Remember how Melbourne cracked when the refs were hammering them?They like anyone can be frustrated into playing away from their strengths forcing players to play as individuals like how we used to say to Shaun Johnson here bro step your opposite and run 80mtrs to score coz we're lazy and useless.
Its always the refs relaxing. Take a look at the replays. Some of those games were we are 11:1 on the bad end of the count, you look at the other refs end and same thing is happening.
Scary big in Solomona and Kasiano is the same as playing 3 Burgess, Jr Paulo and Shannon Boyd, Napa Cordner and co as well as a fierce Dragons pack.
The moral of the story is: Beat them as a team. Defend as a team. Attack as a team. Pressure them as a team.
Never be intimidated by size. They all fall to the ground when you chop them down.
i think a win will come from the basics, the same things the storm will be looking to excel at, compleitions posesion etc, then waiting for us to make mistakes., but if we apply the same blow torch and dont crack we are in with a chance. lino and green moving the pack around, hopefully another 40/20 from green or luke, make the most of the chances we get. anything is possible. i think the odds have a lot to do with the storm being outright favs at start of the year, the same with the roosters, so i dont read too much into the odds. it will be a close one for sure. ill go through my final thoughts tomorrow. bottom line as u say any team can win.i think for all the reasons that you have put forward, the warriors will win. Being underdogs in Melbourne suits them. And ive seen this before. Its not going to be a pretty game though.
Love it! Thought you were gonna predict that Lisornay smashes over a field goal and puts both middle fingers in the air as a saluteWe are gana win this one. Because I said so.
Fusitua is going to get one but save two.
Green is gana get a 40/20 and Lino is gana kick 100% of his goals.
Blair is gana get a try by chasing a messy in goal chase that needs 3 minutes of 3rd ref replays before the KFC thing says T R Y.
Papalii will score and so will Roger Tuivasa-Sheck because he has been used as a distributor thus far and he will go right to create the extra numbers and go right between Scott and Addo hyphen Carr.
Mannering will get a try off a sleight of hand pass from Lino so Mannering goes straight by Hoffman who totally misreads who he's taking like when he was playing for us.
Gelling will be targeted and make a split second decision to rush out and get an intercept and beat Vunivalu and Addo hyphen Carr and Slater to pull out another highlight reel celebration.
Then in the dying stages of the game Lisornay will charge straight through Smith, Slater and Munster and one middle to score.
I think Fusitua will also get a double now.
Coz I said so.
already used 24 players not counting Beale who is definitely in there. thats 25.
Roache/Lawton (one of them will count) is 26.
CNK is probably 27.
Vuna would make 30 and havn't counted Bell, Soosomea, Love-Henry, Cherrington, Sipley, Santo etc.
Almost guaranteed to go past 30 on the season
Id just love them to pick a NZ and English Squad out of important players not in the warriors, with a sticky note attached "for all those times you pretended SoO was not a marketing farce"There's been 26 named so far., which includes CNK. Vuna makes 27.
They can't go past 30 without special exemption from the NRL.
