    Making an impact, scoring tries and defending strongly. Looking forward to watching him play in the Sydney shield.

    Didn't get to watch him play tonight but it looks like he had a solid game and he does have a knack for scoring a try.

    His finals stats of 9 runs for 77 metres, 5 tackle busts, 1 try and 36 tackles with 1 missed in 70 minutes are pretty solid.

    The good thing about Stimson is that he can play on an edge and through the middle and he runs good lines unlike most of our forwards currently.

    Joe is even less letters if my maths is any good. But the Barney nickname is from the womaniser in how I met your mother. May or may not take off.

    He played well last night, but thats because its in the Storms system. Time and time again we've seen players, particularly forwards, leave the Storm system and turn to shit. Cam Smith makes life so much easier for a forward at the Storm. Anyways, I am not gonna get my hopes up about this bloke.

    Hopefully he can be like a Steve Reardon type player for us.

    Of course everyone who goes to Melbourne improves, except .............
    Kasiano
    Kennar
    Myles
    Ryles
    Jacks
    Weston
    Mann
    Chase Blair
    Hunt
    Welch
    Romelo
    Tonumaipea
    George Rose
    Roberts
    etc

    I could go one, but the point is not every player that goes to Melbourne improves, a lot go backwards, we just don't remember them.


    A couple of examples of players that I recall doing OK, Dallas Johnson came back from the ESL and even after 2 years out of Melbourne's system he was 18th man in the 2011 SOO team. So it's not exactly like his wheels fell off when he left Melbourne. Tagataese went more than OK (won a premiership) after leaving Melbourne.

    Go Dogs

    Running good lines seems to be the overall structure of the team though of which we have none. Jackson and etc probably would look godlike in the Storm team, we really need to overhaul our entire coaching staff.
