We could do with a player like Sisa. Covers the entire backline.

Surely must open another door for someone in reserves. Off the top of my head they'd have Tonumaipea and Jeremy Hawkins in reggies.

Nate Myles announces shock mid-season switch to Melbourne Storm

REPRESENTATIVE prop Nate Myles will join Melbourne immediately in a timely recruitment move by the NRL ladder leaders. Released by Manly on Tuesday, Myles will bolster a Storm team hard-hit by the loss of four leading players to State of Origin duty plus the cheekbone fracture last week which ruled prop Jordan McLean out for up to a month.

Storm signed Robbie Rochow before the deadline.

They have a very good side and excellent depth.

They are signing up a lot of aging forwards this year...

Myles is getting on but Kasiano and Rochow are only 26. It's not uncommon for props to play into their 30's, so I don't think they are bad signing or aging for that matter.

Wow! Really! I pictured both of them being much older. Fair enough then!

Yes they won, but with an illegal team Craig. Unapologetic. The Storm have been a blight on rugby league.

If you get a chance watch the Cooper Cronk player of the year/farewell speech. The man is all class!

If I had one complaint it would be how the hell is he so articulate a few days after winning the GF.
