    Iā€™d prefer it if Billy played. Usually has a shocker against us for some reason.

    What a great week for the refs to be told to find a balance with the penalties/game flow. Prepare for us to be wrestled and held down in tackles all night.

    this....teams like the Storm and Broncos always get a major leg up and almost all the 50/50 calls. We'll have to play out of our skin to get near them. But we have KP so anything is possible.

    Sitting on the opposite side in the Andrew Johns Stand when Kidley slotted that one over...not quite the 'Darren Albert' moment BUT it felt pretty damn good on the night....I'd take that again ;)

    Would any of us trust Ponga or Sio to land that kick based on their goal kicking form this season?

    I didn't trust Kurt to kick it at the time let alone Ponga or Sio now, was a great moment not only the kick but the teams reaction afterwards

    This week we will be outsized but am hoping King, Barnett and Yates show the aggression they have in them, hit hard and strong and at least let the Storm know they have played a game
