Something tells me grant may be staying at tigers with Smith 2.0 adamant he’s number 9 next year

I think Brandon might be in for a shock next year. If CS9 moves on I think Grant will be the 9.

Feel bad for him because I’ve never seen a player give so much on the field, deserves the 9 jumper on merit alone

Unfortunately for him, Grant looks a special talent. Would be surprised to see the Storm let him slip by. Brandon Smith would be a starting 9 at almost any other club.

Both players can walk into almost any club and get a start next year.
As a storm fan I’d love for Brandon to continue doing what he’s doing but I couldn’t blame the guy if he got angry cos grant took it.

I think Brandon is too good a player to be playing the role he currently is. He been biding his time waiting for CS9 to retire. If he is not starting 9 next year he needs to move on. 25 Years old next year.

There is a tweet going around saying unlikely Bsmith is at storm next year. I as a Bronco fan would happily accept Smith. He is the type of Leader/Player that can change a whole attitude of a club.

But he isn’t the only thing that needs to be changed.

except they just spent a large chunk of cash, Bsmith would be wanting more surely with what he could do, and what he has already done.

Still having trouble picking who to bring in this week out of Nofo, Munster or SJ.

TU: bring in Nofo this week, play gwill at 5/8 this week and likely can only afford Luai to Munster next week due to SJ low BE.

TD: bring in SJ/ Munster this week, play HTF this week, and bring in Nofo next week.

What 2 would you pick?
Best v Storm
Aubo v Titans
Kennedy v Broncos
Talau v Warriors

With JMoz out and Aubo shifting to left centre I would go Kennedy and Talau. Two new wingers for Warriors (as well as the entire team struggling) and I’m thinking Sharks v Broncos will be high scoring which will bode well for Kennedy at FB

As a ball-playing FB Kennedy has an opp to do more with Chad out, so there’s upside there. Talau looks tasty this week.

Kapow to get 49 mins this week and he’s got great ppm

Twal unknown minutes coming back from injury vs depleted warriors

I’d bank on Kapow. He seems to have hit a purple patch and his average vs Panthers is one of his highest over the last few seasons

Matto to Nofo (via Yeo) this week, then buy Matto back in a few weeks when he bottoms out following last weeks’ 8pts.
