Yep...i'm sure that's right...Bellamy does have a reputation among those that know as being a bit naive and quite easily outwitted ..After their loss to parra they've been exposed and their bogus confidence is shot...you've got this on a plate...panthers 40+
I would not go that far. If we bring our A game, then we could win.

Not sure that Martin will start at prop may use TPJ . TPJ was VERY good last week. As the game gets closer I am very confident we will put up a good showing. If the forwards do their job the hot weather will give Jerome some space to create his magic. Go Panthers!!!

After the loss on Sunday the last 2yrs are going feel so empty

cause what have yous really achieved ? Nothing

storm have already beaten your winning streak from last year

only thing you could brag about is the ref and bunker helped you cheat a cheap victory against the Eels ( the only side in the comp that have the storms number 2-0 would of been 3-0 against them this week )
Yeah because Parra have such a good record against the Storm in finals... Regardless of hating us for whatever silly reasons, I don't get why any non Storm fan would want them to make yet another GF, which they'd more than likely win. Just considering the fact that would mean a whole 5 years of only either Storm or Roosters winning comps. Not exactly the two most soulful clubs going around. The NRL is becoming more and more like the EPL or a league in which the same teams win it every year... boring... on top of the game itself going backwards as a spectacle. We should be praised for trying to upset the applecart even if we fail.

No Leota makes this even tougher.

Our starting pack has lacked go forward and JFH can't do it all by himself.

Kikau really needs to have the game of his life with minimal errors.

They all need to do, especially Leniu. Do or die games like this bring out the best and the worst of players, so I'm hoping everyone is on song and their mindset is fully switched on.

It is a big loss losing Leota. Not just because we miss Leota's impact, but because we have to move Martin to the middle, which means Kikau likely starts. Bringing Kikau off the bench has worked well.

We can't risk any Kikau errors early in the game. That's a big part of what killed us in the GF last year.

Better than the lack of skill Martin brings, Don't even need to pass it to Kikau just have him attracting defenders. The right is the Storm's bad side

Now that Leota is out we have to drop May too and run with Leniu and Hopgood.

Start Hopgood and give him very simple instructions, lead our line speed, and be back in time to take the 3rd tackle hitups. Let him go ballistic for 20 minutes and then he's done.

Bench of Kikau, TPJ, Leniu and Sorenson.
Gives us the option of running TPJ wider if need be. And if API goes down, Luai plays 9, Burton to 6 and Capewell to Centre.

Gotta roll the dice, and gotta go with a strong forward pack.

Ivan won't even have a plan outside of defend well and see what happens
