  1. My favourite fixture: Storm v Cowboys. Cam Smith v JT.

    I have no idea who wins it, but I have my doubts re Sharks.

  2. I went to see Storm dish it up to Cronulla on Saturday and while Storm’s defence kept them in the game, the Sharks ball handling skills, especially in the finishing department left a lot to be desired, they butchered at least three tries.

    I will wait until Storm v Cowboys to assess where they both sit for GF, but I am liking Cowboys to go all the way again. They are peaking at the right time and never discount a rampaging Storm.
