    Quote from Bellamy re: Munster

    ""Obviously Cameron has trained mostly in the halves in the pre-season so to put him back there would be a big call but having said that we've got to do what we think is best thing for the team.

    "Hopefully by Monday or Tuesday we will know what we're doing and train from there.""

    So no decision yet.

    Personally I think it depends on Slater's prognosis. The less likely Slater is to play a role this season, the more you'd put Munster at fullback. If you have confidence in Slater to return, keep Munster at 6.

    @my tv broke wrote:I guess we'll never know who was preferred on the edge for storm prior to this Harris injury. To me it would seem that Kaufusi was getting that spot and Kbrom was going to continue off the bench largely as a middle forward (perhaps playing a bit of edge to spell Kaufusi). Kbrom played all his mins in the last trial as a middle forward.

    I guess there is a chance it stays that way too. Perhaps Stimson or even NAS grabs the spot vacated by Harris..

    Who is the real winner in terms of minutes? Its always hard to get a read on the Storm team, hardly any press comes out of training down there.

    How long has Harris had the injury? It seems the only reason it came to light is the Storm season launch this morning and Harris couldn't get up on stage with the other players.
    He picked up the injury in the trial against the Bulldogs on the weekend

    exactly. if that was a Broncos player for example, there would be hourly updates from every CM jounalist on the injury diagnosis/prognosis.

    I can't recall their mins or times of substitution (though not overly important in a trial). kbrom went off in the first half, finucane came on. kbrom returned to the field in the second half, again in the middle of the field.

    I had only just gone Jbrom >> JWH to free up cash to get better depth

    Is the Harris news likely to mean anything for Strom front row?

    Hey Milchy. What's the current MN in VSDT? (I've got it at about 8876. How close am I?)

    2017 Ladder Predictor

    List how you think the ladder will turn out. For every position out of place you score one point. Much like that silly game Golf the lowest score wins.

    As always it's for glory and the best that will be offered is recognition in the form of a change to your location

    Note: Any Edits after Round 1 kicks off will make your list null and void.

    Uhh actually, you guys don't need to enter because this guy is going to take it out again.

    <--------- You see that, you see where it says Fantasy Fanatics Ladder Predictor Winner. Well yeah, not to brag or anything. But that is pretty much my only achievement in the last year. I know pretty great right. So yeah, don't even bother trying in the Ladder Predictor Comp. Because let's face it. I am without a doubt the best there is, the best there was, and the best there ever will be.

    It is a bit slow at the moment, so let's try something new. Let's review a pulse team. (Also this isn't meant to be having a crack at casuals. More to breakdown their possible reasoning.

    Spoiler:

    HOK: Hodgson had an incredibly stellar year last year. Now whether he keeps up that attacking work rate is one matter. However if Hodgson manages to pull of the 80 minutes he could easily average 55 points this season. Which means he is underpriced by around 7 points. On the flip side of that coin he could struggle to maintain such a high output of attacking stats throughout the season and his general base stats seem inconsistent when compared to other HOK's. Cameron Cullen.... Well as we all know backflips are dangerous and D. Cherry-Evans could end up hurting himself at any time really. No... No, actually let's not review Pulse teams.
