14/14 tipsters so far have gone with Storm to win this game.

Storm though are currently on a blip in their form with their injuries to key players and  uncharacteristic weaknesses in defence.

Even so nobody has as yet tipped Manly for the win.

Storm’s Indigenous jersey 2022

Coree Thorpe, a proud Yorta Yorta, Gunnai, Gunditjmara and Wurundjeri man, designed Melbourne’s Indigenous Round Jersey. He is also a proud supporter of the team, and holds a Leadership and Community Development role at Dardi Munwurro,.

Thorpe used inspiration from the Rainbow Serpent. “I like to tell a story and Storm has an amazing story,” Coree explained.

“Like the snake, each year changes. It’s the shedding of people, players but the journey continues. It’s stronger, it learns, it heals and changes,” he said.

“You’ve got to understand where you’ve come from to know where you are going, and I think Storm do that very well.”

So has it started? I cancelled Fox and signed up for Kayo so I don't know if they're just running late or if I'm watching a delayed stream.

Kaufusi try after 3 or 4 minutes.

Cam Munster kick, ball tapped back by leaper bounced and collected by grateful Kaufusi who dived over freely in the right corner.

4-0 Storm

 

Hang on, it must have been ruled out!

Still 0-0

oops

Surely I can’t be ahead of you, half a world away?

 

I think you are. Did you find a gap in the time/space continuum?

Just started watching with 10 mins to half time. Was going to say Storm look to have the edge...and they get a second try to prove it.

Yes, I am secretly a time lord.

So what's it like in the future? Do we ever get the flying cars?
