The Melbourne Storm have once again shown why they are the most dominant team in the NRL of the last decade by completely outclassing competition leaders the New Zealand Warriors.
The Storm won in a one-sided affair for their Anzac Day clash last night at AAMI Park in Melbourne.
The first half saw the Storm put on an absolute dominant football clinic to run in 38 unanswered points with the Warriors having completely lost their playing ability that gave them a 7-1 start to the 2018 season.
No one expected such as dominant performance from the Storm nor such lacking performance from the Warriors.
It took the Warriors 44 minutes into the game to score points and even though they have ten unanswered points to their name at the 60 minute mark, the game was looking like the epic encounter I predicted. But the Storm turned the heat back up, scoring twelve more points to run out the game 50-10.
Clearly the Storm are starting to click into their brilliant form that earnt them their 2017 premiership with their third win in a row and are starting to put the doubters to rest that they can’t win without Cooper Cronk.
The real test of their skills will come next week when they meet the St George Illawarra Dragons who themselves have only lost one game so far this season and are looking like real contenders in 2018.
This game will indicate who is the one to watch in the 2018 season with the winner sending a message to the rest of the competition. Next week will prove to be most interesting.
What do you think, Roarers? Was the Storm’s win a sign of things to come? Or was it evidence that the Warriors early season form is on the wane?
