    Melbourne Storm

    I just got back from my first ever match. (Storm vs Saints). It was fun. It was certainly close enough, came down to Overtime after Wendell Sailor produced a try out of nothing after doing nothing all night. (Storm won). Did anyone else go/watch this game? I think the Storm will struggle to be dominant this year after losing Folau + a few other quality players. But this blonde guy I've never seen before played well and there development squad is doing well from what I hear so they should finish top 4 at least. BTW I wouldn't mind Greg Inglis playing CHF for the red, white and blue. I reckon he'd be better than Buddy after a year or so.

    Saw Greg Inglis at Altona Gate a while ago. He is a big unit,Did a bit of radio surfing and caught Sydney ABC and endured David Morrow's unabaited bias and barracking for the Dragons. Blimey these Sydney types hate the Storm Ray Hadlee,Phil Gould,pretty certain it's also a super league thing

    i'm assuming they wouldn't be too happy over the first State of origin match being played in Melbourne either. I read somewhere Inglis has put on 6 kilos in the preseason.

    Both!!!!!!!!!!!

    Tough call, but I guess if you had first pick I'd be happy with whoever I was left with. Inglis probably has a greater ability to influence the game himself whereas Falou needs his team mates to get the ball out wide to him.

    Inglis by quite some way just because of his position. Both freaks though.

    I'm gonna have to agree with Inglis. It hurts though to think how unstoppable Melbourne could've been in 2-3 years time had Folau stayed. Folau and Inglis would be entering their prime on the same team! That blonde haired guy played good as well. I don't know his name but apparently it was his 3rd game. Cameron Smith and Billy Slater are the oldest on the list at 25 years old. I dunno how the NRL compares to the AFL in terms of age but that's a pretty young team. The Storm are the NRL's version of West Coast IMO. Very successful over their short history, seem to have smart recruiting and they both lost their star players to their home state (Folau and Judd)

    Re: Melbourne Storm

    Been watching the Toyota cup and a kid called Hampson looks like another gun the Storm have picked up.
    I am lucky enough to work with an uncle of a kid signed by the Storm from NZ I dont know his name but he is under 18s and has never scored less than 2 tries in a game.

    Apparently a bit of lack of communication between coaches.
    He was supposed to play Toyota cup rest of season but under 18s coach didnt tell him, his agent rang and asked why he hasnt been at under 20s training all week, said no one told him too.

    Melbourne Storm has reported an incident involving a member of our NRL squad currently on holidays in Bali to the NRL’s Integrity Unit.

    Storm has launched a full investigation into what has occurred.

    Storm takes these type of incidents very seriously and will not be making any further public comment at this time.

    Massive cut lunches. Glad not to be in the way of those, they seem to be relatively well directed.
