    We might get within 30 if Melbourne rest their entire first grade team.

    This will be the last game of the competition for the Dragons and thank goodness for that. So tired of seeing us wilt under pressure. No defence so the Storm will get to 60 in a canter next week against us.

    Next year, I am not too keen on following this once proud club as now we have become the easybeats.

    Depending on who we recruit, we will get better. Griffin miles ahead of Young and McGregor. That being said he will need time to bring in new structures etc.

    Structures?
    No backline structure
    No forward structure

    Cody gave up & had to go looking for the ball

    It’s the Zac & Duff show

    ...& Zac’s was an Origin performance. IMO

    At least Sullivan & Sailor would get the backline moving?

    I hate to say it but just sit back & enjoy the way the storm plays.
    Admire the skills, speed, patience & toughness of Munster, Hughes, Papahuysen?,Smith, JAC etc, etc.

    I've had a think about next weeks game and I am convinced that a very good coach (which unfortunately Young isn't) could actually keep the game to a draw or at worst Storm 6 Dragons 0.

    If we get to kick off we send it to big Nelson or that other giant with all the letters of the alphabet in his name and as he winds up we get our entire team to gang tackle him as he takes that 1st hit up.

    We then send all 13 off for a HIA which they fail.

    We then send on the entire bench and if the Storm hit it up once again we just repeat the same thing and of course all 4 again fail the HIA so a scoreless draw results.

    If the Storm decide to throw it out along the line well they might score a try and convert.

    We then do a short kick off and in the confusion of all that we crash into each other as well as them and our blokes go off for a HIA and of course we fail so Storm 6 Dragons 0.

    Now if we pick the right team I dare say most could fail the HIA before the game let alone during it.
