Wow what a season for both reserves and league teams at @northadelaideroosters. A great bunch of Lads who where very open, honest and hardworking. The commitment you have shown towards each other and putting the team first is beyond compare.
A big thank you to all the coaches and players for trusting in me this season with the fitness of the playing group. It has been a great experience where many lessons were learned.
Thank you to all who have helped contribute in some way shape or form towards the program this year, your help does not go unnoticed.
Never before has an NRL team celebrated a Grand Final victory before kickoff, but that’s exactly what Melbourne Storm will be doing today after the ill-disciplined dropathon the Roosters served up in the Major Preliminary Final.
Billy Slater’s inclusion is irrelevant as Roosters’ star halfback Cooper Cronk is set to miss the match due to rotator cuff injury.
And that’s like losing your Queen in chess.
The last game at Allianz Stadium was a catastrophic mess. It felt like the ball was dropped every three minutes and a penalty blown every four. Even the Dragons, held together by sticky tape, limping on one leg, as they are, could have beaten either side.
In fact the match was so laughably bad the SCG Trust is considering tearing down Allianz Stadium.
The team will continue celebrating at Crown Casino for the rest of the week, before flying to Sydney on Sunday.
In a brilliant show of sportsmanship Master coach Craig Bellamy has permitted the team to play drunk in the Grand Final in order to, “Challenge the players and attempt to make some sort of contest out of the final game of the season”. Full story: http://surryhillstimes.com/storm/
Good luck to the girls tonight up against the Broncos. #eaststowin
We've fitted @_maddiestuddon mouthguards since she was a junior! Fantastic to see her pursuing her dream 👏
Magpies or Eagles.
Storm or Roosters.
Whichever team or code you follow, we know that Australia will be gripped by footy fever this weekend.
Watching the game at home with friends? We have a great range of lounge suites to fit the whole grand final party.
