tdgeek:Dial111: They didn't even get off the plane, Warriors got absolutely hammered.
Thought we were remembering the Anzacs that fought at Gallipoli, not giving a reenactment.
Hammered? nah. What was the score in the second half? 12-10 to the Storm. 2 tries each. We were more than competitive. Home Storm game too.
First half, yes, hammered. Out that down to a clinical display, run of the green, and a lack of focus from the Warriors. Possession was 2/3 Storm, and they well and truly used that. Ironically we were a cm from the first try.
On reflection its not that bad. 6-2 this season, beat the unbeaten Dragons last game, matched Storm last 40 mins while being down 2 key players. The 38-0 should have gone to 70-6 but it didnt
I agree with your points but the score reflects a hammering either way you look at it really, splitting hairs. The 4 day turnaround and turning up on day 5 wouldn't of helped either.
First half they were clearly outplayed that's a given. Second half was a better display but the Warriors were facing a mammoth task to chase down that score line and against a team known for strong defence, the result was never in doubt.
it may look worse then it was ,but in reality you leak points like that your not going very far in the NRL. Take it as a lesson and learn from it which I think they will and next week we will see a different team.
I still think we are miles ahead of previous seasons and this is a wake up call that if you clock off momentarily against a team like the Storm, they will punish you.
