Every 50/50 call goes Melbourne’s way. Melbourne score 3 iffy tries with 60% possession early on, otherwise it has been a very even game When possession evens out. Full strength this would be a very different game!

Been saying all year staines needs to go back to nsw cup.

Most on here thinks hes our future fb. Yep he is not.

Some really dumb plays and poor edge d.

But without nathan the majority of us knew we would lack direction and struggle.

Hopefully the boys dont give up and at least get a few tries in the 2nd 40

Storm had lots of things go right for them in that 1st half.
If we can just keep hold of the ball and put some pressure on them maybe we can make this an interesting game.
Some of the Storm forwards were walking at the back end.
You never know.

First game he's been poor in defence

Thought that was actually a decent first half tbh. It's literally David V Goliath here.

Left edge D is no good but no To'o or Luai will always hurt.

In attack Jennings bombed one and we looked very closely to bowling over on a couple occasions. Melbourne had to do a lot of stalling in the ruck. If we had bigger bodies in Yeo or JFH the Storm would probably have a guy in the bin by now.
It was by sheer misfortune that Martin did not score. We are in this.

A rookie in his first year is going to dish up some shit. What are the experienced guys doing? They look just as bad.

Exactly. Staines is not having a good game but it is harsh to blame him when significantly more experienced and senior players like Edwards, Kikau who are supposed to be our 'stars' have been ordinary. Even Naden and R.Jennings have significantly more experience and they have been diabolical.

The effort is there we are bringing the intensity but are not clinical enough. Too many errors and dumb plays.

Is Staines a relation or something? Geesus you’re very protective over him.

Naden is that bad in defence. Absolutely in excusable to not play Momo in front of him.

Hopgood had alot of impact.
Melbourne don't have a full contingent of forwards on the bench if we can tire them out we may make a game of it.
Either way I think lenui, hopgood and tago deserve a good amount of minutes
