    It was noticed. You might get a call up into the first grade team if you have a strong off season.

    There’s really not much of a future for small forwards in the game, unless they have a shitload of skill. And quite frankly I haven’t seen anything of ray stone. But under our current system he may play 150 FG games before someone notices he can’t play....

    The game was lost on poor calls.

    - Penalty try? Billy Slater made a career on these. That was a knock on.

    - Penrith no try. Brenko made wrong call. That was clear.

    - Crighton in clear with two on inside. Certain 6. Kikau passed backward into a storm player called knock on.

    Then you had the luck factor.

    - Storm drop ball hits a panther then Kilau gets it. 9/10 it's called a knock on. But called Penlaty Storm. 2 points.

    - Intercept try.

    - Cam Smith has ball raked with 4 seconds to go. Its bounce up and he scores. That was as flukey as it gets.

    Not one call went Panthers way. Untill it was 26-0.
    No luck went Penriths way.

    The better side lost. The smarter team won.

    I wouldn't mind Naden at Parra. His defense is a bit shakey but he gives 100%.

    Lol Panfas were camped on Scum line for 20 minutes and all they could come up with was an obstruction and an intercept. They were headless. If we dished that up people would be shitcanning BA and Moses

    100% imagine this place going into melt down. I can think of a few who would be crowing "that's it, I'm done with this club".

    Storms defense was awesome. Penrith almost scored 3 x in one set yet they resisted.....

    Parra found holes in the Storm. We could of had 6 tries. Defense cost us

    We had a solid finals campaign.
    We should of beat Souths. Shame we lost Naikuore,Fergi,MJ....
    I reckon we would of also beat Panthers. Souths where terrible.

    And in the wet last night our big middles may of overpowered the Storm. Where Storm that good? Some very lucky tries and reffing calls.
    I dont think they played that well compared to their previous two games.

    We copped injuries at wrong times.
    D.Brown rushed into finals.after being out for 5 weeks also hurt.

    Now the two GF sides where both full strength.

    Almost scoring. Is that how they won 32-20?
    Your mob 100% lost because they had no idea in 1st half

    Because a half who can take the game by the scruff of the neck and win it is a rare commodity. Storm are lucky that they have Smith who plays hooker/half. We are lucky that we have Gutho if Moses drifts in and out of games as he does.

    Cleary is that measured opening batsman who just turns the ball inside and kicks on T5. He leaves it to the flashy players to create points. If the flashy players are overawed or dominated by line speed, the team goes to water. Kikau was the only Penrith player who was creative. Credit to storm, did Penrith's back three even play ?

    Ok Gus. Storm repelled them time and time again. The Kikau ‘forward pass’ call was a shocker. But I think every other call was fine. You make your own luck in the GF. Penrith were poor last week and yesterday. The score line flattered them

    Storm were the better team and won fair and square. What about the Penrith obstruction which was a 100% no try. Jesh some people are biased

    I am taking the piss a little. I do understand rugby league. My actual thoughts


    They shit the bed. At 10-0 Cleary throws a stinker of a pass. It had intercept written all over it.
    With 67% possesion in first 22mins they come away with no points.I felt that was the game. That was there golden period and chance to lead. And I reckon they knew it. After that the tide turned for 18mins. And in that time 6-0 become 22-0. All the energy and spring in their step was gone. They went away from their game plan at 10-0 and imploded.

    Kikau had a stinker of a game. And Korisau kept trying to draw a penalty by running into the marker. He dropped the ball a few times doing this. The first lead to a try. Stupid in the wet.
    Add Cleary not getting a finger on Papenhuazen who goes 80mtrs.
    The is I saw the game. I also felt Tamou and Yeo needed more mins. And Kikau needed to be hooked early. You could see he was off. Wet weather is not his game.

    An incorrect call then gifted the Panthers a try. And they scored 2 more with Storm a man short. 26-0 was more true indication of the game. And without that call I would go as far as saying Stormmput on another 2 and make it closer to 40.

    The rub of green favoured the Storm. But they had limited chances yet took all of them. Panthers failed on many.

    They also created overlaps and passed to early to butcher breaks. Edwards a major factor here. Had they had Gutherson it may of been different.

    But overall I reckon the Storm handled them easily. They handled every side easy. Parra pushed them the hardest but failed to slow game down when needed.
    Simply they are just too good.
