The Storm are likely to lose four regulars for their last tune-up before the finals against the Dragons on Sunday.

Winger Suliasi Vunivalu (hamstring), lock Tino Fa'asuamaleaui (calf) and back-rowers Kenny Bromwich (concussion) and Felise Kaufusi (knee) are set to sit out.

The club said they won't be resting any fit players. Fullback Ryan Papenhuyzen (Achilles) and outside back Paul Momirovski (finger) are good chances to return.

Nice to see the Dragons give the young players a run if only in the last game.

Norman to the Reserves? A very good player (on his day) but rarely performing.
I think his problem apart from not wanting to get in the trenches is that at 5/8th he does not use his footy brain enough and is not "aggressive" enough.

My only other comment on another poor season is....if the club paid Phil Gould to run his review did they listen to him? or did they ignore him?
If they implement any of his "just a few minor changes needed" then they should be asking for their money back because NOTHING has changed for decades apart from 2010 under Bennett..

we might even get Lafai back seeing he is one of those being "boned" at the dodgies

Storm with a few out and we are finally giving some young guns a run.
Is a loss any benefit to the Storm in the finals draw?

About time too.

Can't believe we're letting Host go.
me either. if they want to keep on running a forward wide like Fizzle then Host would have been the obvious choice.....unless we get DB back.

We have/will I think - but Host is still worth keeping. Souths will not be paying him that much.
