Shoulda signed with us.
He'd be playing firsts every week.

Forgot he was still around until tonight.
Playing off the bench.

Imagine if Hampton got the match winner last night...

He probably would have if the Storm went through the hands. Instead Smith herped derped it and threw an awful cutout ball that Hampton had to pick up off the floor allowing the defence to cover.

Thankfully Chambers didn't pass inside to an unmarked Cronk a few minutes before that.

I don't think that was a particularly easy pass to get away. He was sort of off balance and it would have been a relatively long pass.

I tend to agree. But on the other hand, all of our players stopped. There wasn't a Shark moving within 15 meters of Cronk. He could have moon-walked in the in-goal. Watching the chip & regather nearly gave me a heart attack. Watching the wide shot on the replay, I couldn't believe our luck.

I rewatched last night and there was a Shark moving up behind Chambers as well as the points you make. It probably could of been enough to dribble one out the back and Cronk probably would of got on it first but I'm happy he took the conservative option and we're premiers.

Even before Sunday's game, I've seen a lot of Storm fans on reddit criticise Chambers for being a ball hog. Surely you'd just chuck it inside to Cronk. An average pass wins them the game. I'll go to my grave saying "but what if they had scored at the end".
