Do you really believe that?
I thought the storm were very much below their best yesterday. Part of that was our early line speed and penalty upon penalty the rest was extremely uncharacteristic dropped balls and missed tackles. For the most part they were mutually exclusive.

Their toughness won the day as they withheld our barrage for almost the whole first half. Once the tide of possession started to turn you could see our blokes drop their collective bundles. They played tough more than skillfully as shown by the game stats that had us winning almost every category. They hang in there and kept within striking distance until they got a roll on and unlike us they converted all opportunities into points. Thats the lesson I want our blokes to learn. Skill only gets you so far. Dedication and mental strength gets you over the line.

Melbourne take most of their opportunities and we do not. That is the primary difference between 1st and 16th.

In commentary slater told them
Expect ambush hang in there

Structurally they are a Great side they make there no name players step up
Plus the storm would not have prepared like it was a storm roosters or broncos game at Suncorp stadium

Tigers produced a great 30 minutes that would of made any team have poor completion stats. And plus the Leichhardt penalty count they were ready to absorb
