    Game of the round in my opinion.

    The master, the pupil; essentially the difference between the coaches and the teams themselves, both playing a similar style, one bred and born in it and the other being introduced and groomed into it.

    Considering the recent rivalry between the two teams, it should be one of the most epic and inspired clashes of the season. Considering the Kearney and Arthur switch, it should be even more emotional and frantic than it has been before.

    Sure is a game of two halves. Jeff Robson VS Cooper Cronk.
    Now I'd be willing to put some money on.....

    F**k it.

    WE ARE SCREWED.

    I don't know, Kearney know's the team inside out. Hopefully both teams are in the same sort of form come game day because Storm will lap them. But, with Parra you just don't know.
    Slater v Hayne again, awesome.

    well storms big win against bulldogs will make it seem parra will get flogged, but i think our advantage is in our coach knowing the team inside out. parra can't switch off our their backline will burn us! our forwards need the game of their lives on sunday! i cant wait...will be a very close game imo

    So Kearney knows Storm's game plan...Bellamy would have changed the plays IMO after he left.

    Fine, what's game of the round in your opinion?

    Whenever these two sides clash, sparks fly and it's generally an awesome battle. The three games in the past two years spring to mind.

    Storm heritage strip updated. They'll be wearing a replica of their original 1998 jersey.

    That's true but I still think this game will eclipse them. Though the history isn't as far-stretching as with the Dragons-Bulldogs clash, the recent history certainly is unbelievably tense. It's got so many under-currents to it that it just promises to be one of, hopefully, the games of the season.

    Plans may have changed, weaknesses of the key players hasnt though. Kearney will look to exploit that. Still, I think we'll win by 6-8.

    I’m struggling to see anything other than Storm winning by 30+
