Lions no fear factor for Storm
AS THE three-way battle for the last finals place continues, Northern Storm boss Jade Porter in encouraging his troops to enjoy their football instead of looking at the table.
The Thunder are three points clear of Coffs Coast Tigers and Boambee but have a tough match on Sunday at McLean St involving Coffs United.
"I think we've all now learned to get in their face and let them know what we're about," Porter said.
"While it's still a bit too early to be thinking of the finals, we can do ourselves a favour in this game for the end of the year by taking the game right up to the Lions."
Porter admits to struggling with injury and availability, a situation also faced by rival Mike Smith.
"We have a couple out again but it's still a strong team," Smith said.
"It's always tough against these blokes and the idea is to give them a good, hard games and wear them down.
"We'll keep grinding away and see what comes up."
The other vital outcome over the weekend will be what transpires between Coffs Tigers and Boambee at Polwarth Dr this afternoon.
