Knights Vs Storm Trial Saturday 4.45 PM- livestream weblink and discussion


Danny 'Bedsy' Buderus
O'Brien said some time ago that this game would be close to a proper firstgrade matchup, at least for the first half.

Storm have said on their site that a reserve grade match will be held as well.

I think we will see our starting side, except for Pearce, named for this game.

It sounds like Crossland will be in for Pearce - big test for him.

Pearce is there, no Lee, Hunt or Mann. Big chance for Mat Croker.

Lots there to talk about.
No Lee, no Hunt.
Pearce is playing.
Crossland gets a chance at 5/8 with Mann not named.
Matt Croker is the only player from outside the top 30 or development list to get a run, and he didn't even train with firstgrade - what's that about?


Danny 'Bedsy' Buderus

Ponga - injured
Green - injured
Mann - not officially injured, but he's been training with a lot of strapping on his hands.
