Why can't we beat the Storm.....Why?
History means nothing, 80 minutes is all that matters.....and the fact they cheated us out of a premiership, that history matters. Time to belt the scum.
TBH I thought the same would play out this arvo. We didn’t let that happen and we need to take the same mentality into next week. Let’s win and win well.History also shows that we always fire up against Melbourne in the finals only to cop bullshit refereeing against us.
Our last ten finals losses were to:In our three finals appearances while those merkins were cheating the cap they were the ones who beat us on all occasions, it's about f**king time we took one back.
Our last ten finals losses were to:
Its ok, we dont have to win by 58 again ..... 54 would be acceptableAami Park isn't a fortress this year. Including the semi against the Raiders, four of the five losses the Storm have had, have been at Aami Park. So 12 games, 8 wins, 4 losses, as opposed to their away stats ( incl the Suncorp "home" game where they flogged us ) are 13 Games, 12 wins and 1 loss.
In saying that, the cumulative margin for those losses is only eight f**king points.
Roosters 21 - 20
Manly 11 - 10
Raiders 22 - 18
Raiders 12 - 10
Their only other loss was to Sharks at Shark Park 20 - 18
Our attack can trouble the storm, but the key is complete our sets, no stupid errors / penalties, can’t give the storm easy field position.
I don’t think this storm side is as strong as previous years.
Realistically, we suck against teams like the Storm who slow the game down.
Of course we can win. We'll need to attack their edges, which are vulnerable. And who knows? We saw against the Raiders how a bit of individual brilliance can swing a game that does get turned into a boring grind....
