IMHO, the players should not be laughing after a result like that.

Were they laughing? Think they were just giving a smile to their oppenents when they were shaking their hands but I turned off pretty soon after and it went straight to the Matty Johns show anyway. I saw Nicho, he wasn't laughing, was devo


Wondering why they keep pushing passes in situations where, even if the pass is successful, it's not going to create much benefit.

They either see something we don't or the all out attack mantra is muscle memory at this point.


I was surprised how long we stayed out going through warm up drills, I wonder if Fitz saw something pre game that was concerning. Storm I rekon went in 3.50 i swear we ran in on the final channel 9 ad break at 4.02. At ground level we had no answers for big Nelson and his pure power,

Gotta limber up when a reaming like that is inbound - quite diligent really

Speed bumps too generous, more like witches hats I’d call them.

Speed bumps do their job

If Gards was Sharks coach I could imagine him turning up to the post game presser with a print out of answers to expected questions, handing out a copy to each of the journos, waiting 45 seconds for them to have a read, and then rising to leave with a polite thank you.

Better than what I would do.

Give the journos a list of allowable questions and then proceed to tell them all to **** off!

It was a general comment, not specific to this game.

Anyone still glad Jeff Robson is gone?

Bloke was a genius - kicking into touch while down 30 points winding the clock down and disrupting the Storms rhythm. Inside balls that made the Storm giggle and complacent.

Never had 50+ put on us @ AAMI Park with him in the team, he just refused to let that happen

I reckon Habib had an easier time with his club invoices and tax deductions from the Melbourne trip prior to pretty boy wearing the 7

Shave Nicho's head to the skin until he learns the sacred art of settling

Didn't mind Jeff, as much of a meme as we was, he was a good half back. I I think a prime/later end of his career Jeff Robson would have no problems securing a first grade contact today
