A thread for all 2021 Round 22 team lists, discussions, news and views. Serves as a team list thread and game day discussion for all games through the week (besides the Warriors one of course :) )...

Funny when you really boil it all down it comes down to the storm just passing and catching better than everyone else.

Storm up 20 to 4 with over 40 minutes to run
Unless you are a top 6 side there is no point aiming up to beat them
The only team who realised this was warriors
We knew we would lose so blooded rookies in the game. Smart by Nathan brown.
Raiders were talking up a victory this week
Coaches need to actually tell their players the truth or their words become meaningless when games are winnable
If I were Ricky or any bottom 8 team playing the storm I would talk about set completion then getting a good kick chase
One out hit ups all game long
Don’t risk any off loads or expansive play
Just try to minimise the bleeding and scoreboard loss.

Ran a bit closer in the end though

Corey Harawira-Naera's gets a 3 weeks suspension for the hit of the year that floored Melbourne's Jahrome Hughes. His 7 year clean record (despite only playing first grade 4 years - they include under 20’s) and an early guilty plea halved the 6 game charge, meaning the Canberra forward will be free to return for the NRL's finals.

hmmm… 2 weeks for Lodge for an nothing, non injury, careless tackle. Vs 3 weeks for concussing a guy, aggressively.

Shoulder charge Cleary.... nothing to see here... If only our team could get away with that!
what a JOKE
Gordon Tallis in commentary even said it was a shoulder charge. Although he was praising it. The league media would argue he couldn't do anything but brace himself but it leaves a sour taste when you look at the shot on Montoya that was also let go.

Bet if Lodge or Addin Fonua-Blake stuck a shoulder in everyone would remember the rules.
