"They're excited but relaxed at the same time which is a good sign".
Can legendary MelbourneStorm trio Billy Slater, Cameron Smith and Cooper Cronk add more silverware to their bulging trophy cabinets? The two are fast becoming North Queensland legends, if they weren't already. By anyone's standards, it is an awesome roster. Morgan has driven the Cowboys to this unlikely grand final appearance and along with wrecking ball Jason Taumalolo will be key to how they perform on the night.
By all accounts, including the bookies, it should be a Storm success come Sunday. "What they do speaks for themselves really", Fonua says.
"The team and the club's very successful and professional".
"We have a Melbourne old boys' weekend every year where we go down, we mingle with the players. That's what the culture does to the players down there".
"It's not about my opinion of him as a player". He knows the way they operate intimately.
"From there I knew everyone was doing everything for each other". Their coach is the heavily experienced Craig Bellamy, victor of three titles already.
Furner was there to watch the Cowboys topple the Sydney Roosters and he'll take his place in the stands on Sunday as North Queensland aim for a boilover. Surely the Cowboys might as well give up now.
Think Eddie the Eagle, Leicester City winning the Premier League, Greece claiming the Euro 2004 title, Buster Douglas beating Mike Tyson, David against Goliath, that sort of thing.
This is how to really appreciate the magnitude of North Queensland's against-the-odds run to reach the NRL grand final.
Arsenal are more united - Wenger
The France worldwide became the first Arsenal player to score in his first three home games for the club in the Premier league era.
The unfancied Wests Tigers did the same in 2005.
Slater is my pick for Man of the Match.
History is there to be rewritten. Parramatta almost beat Melbourne the other week. The Cowboys rake has been solid in defence over the last few weeks but hasn't had the chance to showcase his deadly running game - although Melbourne are so adept at controlling the ruck, Granville only needs one chance to break a game right open. In just 20 seasons Melbourne have reached eight grand finals and 17 finals series. Spots for the NRL grand final are worth around $125,000 per 30-second ad. It's important to get a bit of a roll on, especially off the back of Taumalolo, he can run out and wreak some havoc.
Melbourne will also target the Cowboys' front row pair of John Asiata and Scott Bolton.
Exhaust Melbourne's middle, wear down Smith and their heavy forward pack.
But Thurston is hardly the NRL's highest-paid cheerleader.
And they have parlayed that reprieve into three consecutive boilovers and a grand final appearance. The Cowboys certainly believe they can do it. Morgan is in career-best form.
They have the confidence and belief to get the job done, even if it goes to extra-time. They are tenacious, gutsy and will never surrender.
North Queensland is dripping with destiny.
The test they faced against the Eels in week one showed how they can take those body blows and completely change their plan to suit the game.
But I would be fairly sure that he set about bringing Morata to his team around the same time and Chelsea are lucky he did. Keane is convinced with United's recent performances that make them capable of winning big trophies at Old Trafford.
Apple confirmed in a statement that it is aware of the problem and looking into it, but declined to give any more information. Apple is reportedly investigating but it is believed that the screens are being detached because of battery swelling.
The department announced the trip Thursday evening after Duke's "good news" comments at the White House earlier that day. Maria hit Puerto Rico more than a week ago, leaving the island without power and many people without drinking water.
The prince, a veteran of service in Afghanistan, created the Paralympic-style games as a way to inspire soldiers toward recovery. The 35-year-old joined a stellar line up as she performed in the closing ceremony along with Bruce Springsteen and Bryan Adams.
With better competition on the horizon, DC Wade Phillips must find a way to improve the performance this talent-laced unit. Last season he started seven games, lost all seven and threw five interceptions under former head coach Jeff Fisher.
Both teams are vastly different from that matchup four years ago, and the Chargers don't even play in the same city anymore. Defensive coordinator Jim Schwartz needs to make sure he has the right plan to contain Rivers, or it can get ugly.
Singer Marilyn Manson arrives on the red carpet for the Echo Music Awards ceremony in Berlin, March 22, 2012. The kicker, forgive the phrasing, is that Manson broke his ankle on stage the night before in Pittsburgh.
