I would argue he is better than Slater was at this point in his career which is scary. I don't think he will reach the same heights as Slater though. But Billy was erratic and error prone in his first 2 seasons. Paps is pretty damn safe at the back.Papenhauzen looks like he could go around again ffs typical storm
The Storm were all over us form the 2nd set onwards and never looked back. Yes, we had 3 players go down during the game and a host of other key injuries but we were never realistically in the hunt. A loss like this was always coming given recent performances but the Storm were all class.I know Roosters had some key players out - but the leadership without Smith and Munster was outstanding, from our spine in particular.
Very surprised and very happy with that performance.
Yeah we won’t bother looking at an established coach other than O’Brien tbh. When the time comes I’m sure we will appoint from withinI think based on that game the Storm will remain a force at least until Bellamy retires. Even then they’d need to replace Craig with a spud like Kevvie Walters or Stephen Kearney and it would take some time before the standards started to slip. But the Storm are too professional to choose a spud as Bellamy’s successor.
I’m glad Adam O’Brien is coaching my club because if he was still the heir apparent to Bellyache then it would be BAU for the Storm for another 15-20 years.
yep just like we don't go for established players I don't see us going for an established coachYeah we won’t bother looking at an established coach other than O’Brien tbh. When the time comes I’m sure we will appoint from within
