    Territorian Joel Romelo delivers good news to Storm fans

    Lass than 24 hours after Storm’s “Big Three” — Cameron Smith (ankle), Billy Slater (shoulder) and Cooper Cronk (broken arm) — suffered serious injuries in Queensland’s 12-8 defeat to NSW in the opening State of Origin clash, Romelo painted a happier picture.

    The Darwin NRL product said his ankle was responding well to treatment and he was feeling optimistic that he will be fit in time for the clash with the Titans on the Gold Coast on June 16.

    “I am about three weeks ahead of schedule in my rehabilitation,” Romelo said.

    The original diagnosis for his ankle injury, which happened early in his Storm debut against South Sydney, was eight weeks.

    “It was disheartening to suffer the injury after all the hard work I had put in to get the chance,” Romelo said.

    “But Craig (Bellamy) has been good, telling me to get myself right.”

    Romelo wore the No. 6 jersey after Ben Hampton was given a two-game suspension, while Ben Roberts suffered a torn medial ligament in round seven playing at five-eighth.

    Romelo said the loss of Smith, Slater and Cronk meant that the remaining Storm team now had to step up.

    “We had a team meeting (today) and we know it is a challenge for us,” he said.

    “Everyone is going to be writing us off so we need to lift for the game.”

    Ben Roberts and Tohu Harris are expected to fill the halves’ roles against the Cowboys tomorrow.

    “It’s really disappointing for Joel because he’s trained really hard pre-season to earn a contract and since then has been waiting for an opportunity,” Storm football director Frank Ponissi said.

    “We weren’t sure at the time how serious it was, but scans have confirmed a high ankle sprain.”

    This game is nearly a gimme with the Storm having so many top liners out with Origin/injury.

    A "Gimme"?

    A gimme means a loss. I am not being cynical just conditioned by years of disappointing Titan experience. This team has never been able to press home an advantage.

    I think on the back of no Cronk and Widdops gone , Slater with a question mark over him we need to win this one fairly well. If can't win and win well over the Storm then we really should not finish in the eight. Panthers will touch us up and then we will need to win this game.

    Well the Storm just got beat up by the Roosters 32-12. It will be interesting to see how the Storm react to this.

    You have to be joking.
    a) Luke Page is contracted to Canberra and playing for Souths Logan.
    b)Why would you have Dave Taylor on the bench?
    c)Ryan James is on the bench for Tweed and you want to play him on the run on in NRL.
    d)Srama is a hooker not a five-eight and Kelly is hurt. What about Sam Irwin who has been playing in the halves for Tweed?
    e)and your keeping ZipZip, Zlater, Thrillman or whatever you want to call him.

    A) My mistake. It's a shame because he's better than most of our props, especially nuffies like White, Ioane and Bailey.
    B) Taylor makes too many errors and run sideways too often. The bloke can't run over people over 100kgs. But I like to remain loyal to players.
    C) See as above A. Plus he's origin material.
    D) Srama played in the halves for 20's. He's the best option to replace Sezer. We can't move Zillman to 5/8. Jack Gibson said never weaken a position to strengthen another.
    E) Yeah he's our captain.You don't watch footy, do you?

    I can guarantee you I suffered from the stands last night and I have never missed a game. Q Cup is a long away from origin. You also said before Mead can't pass so you decide to play him at centre
    Zillman is our vice captain. Srama has played his best football at hooker and Irwin is a better half option than Srama.
