Cleary has said luia is 100 % fit would not take. Chances nathen unlikely to play will not take risks.JFH is feeling down and feels he is letting the boys down leaving the hub .he will be rested and ready to rip in the run home

Well obviously this is Melbourne's game to lose.

I wouldn't bother with Nathan Cleary. He is very good but no Korisau/Yep decimates our attack.

The way we structure our attack the middle boys create something before passing to the edge boys when there's an opportunity. We can play role players like Samon, Sorenson, Jennings, etc to go to the line play short, draw and pass, do their job and stuff like that. Eventually points will come from that. But Api, Yeo, Cleary and Fish are invaluable and we just can't replace them, not to mention To'o arguably the guy who comes the closest to replacing what JFH brings was playing on one leg.

Not expecting much against the Storm unless Nath plays. Even then it's pretty grim without Yeo and Fish. It'd take a superhuman effort for him to drag us to a win without those guys.

I hope Cleary and Yeo don’t play against the Storm. Those Storm grubs will target them illegally and get away with it like they also do. Give them the week off and regroup for the following week. As much as I want to beat the Storm we will get another chance, hopefully when everyone is back and much healthier. Fish having some time out will be a bonus when he comes back. He needs a rest.

I love Mark Geyer, he is a Panther through and through.

We should definitely be underdogs but I don’t think we should write our chances off against the Storm just yet.

If Edwards, Luai and Yeo (assuming he plays) can each have big games we can stay with them and frustrate them. I think the biggest determinant will be Chrichton up against Olam; Chritter’s defence has been amazing this year and he will need to take it to another level next week. But if he can hold him out and cause some issues of his own for the Storm, I think we could squeak a win.

Who gets the captaincy?
Good question, I was wondering who the captain was when JFH went off. In terms of seniority in the team, it is Edwards although Kikau has more games. I'd go for Edwards. Other contenders would be Leota and Capewell.
