Leilua tackled before the ball received.

I'm attacking in the right way, instead of just...attacking in the general direction. - Max Aaron (also eerily apropos for the Green Machine)

Get Stuart to realise he is holding the club back and step down to player manager!

6th min Rapana and Leilua make a raid... Leilua tackled before he receives the ball, but no penalty to Canberra.

6th min The Storm are really testing the right side in defence, with Soliola and Abbey struggling.

We go from being on the attack to down by 8 off the back of a **** call by the refs.

I really don’t know how much longer I can keep following this sport. It’s just totally ****.

7th min TRY STORM to Felise Kaufusi off a Billy Slater pass. For some reason they are going to video, but there is nothing wrong with the try. It is easy stuff for Melbourne. Cameron Smith converts.

Storm 8-0

Not drunk enough for this.

Sadly if I have any more I'll fall asleep instead.

What do the touch judges even do because I can’t see them doing anything except run up and down the line.

Safe to assume we won’t be getting any favours from the officials tonight.

8 mins in and refs already showing they want the Storm to win. The boys should just walk off the field in protest

The NRL will be so much better off when Slater and Smith retire.
