Storm V Roosters at Lang Park about to kick off. Both teams on the field... Storm kick off, we are underway! Quite a lot of people there, given the late venue switch and the fact this Storm home game is being played in Brisbane.

12th min TRY ROOSTERS to Kyle Flanagan, and he converts his own try from in front of the posts. The try comes from a dropped ball from the Storm in their own half.

Roosters 6-0

Watching this game ... take a look at the shots both teams throw at each other.
They rarely waste rucks setting up for plays.
Constantly attacking.

It’s great huh.
They live and die by it, but they don’t die wondering.
They are confident enough to keep the defensive line constantly threatened.
I wish we did more of this.

I just don’t like Angus Crichton. I think it’s the combination of private school x Rugby Union ego.

Melbourne have to be smarter than this. They’re attacking the try line and have Brandon Smith at hooker, while Cameron Smith is catching a cold out in the backline. Amateurish

Roosters are a class above.
Just look at their sets.
They ask questions all the time.
The forwards support each other and look for the hooker and Teddy all the time.

They have the speed to go end to end, get you going backwards and the speed to finish it off.

72nd min TRY STORM to Jahrome Hughes under the posts. They're going to the bunker to check obstruction, doesn't look like a problem TRY. So maybe that's not the match! Converted Cameron Smith.

78th min Penalty to the Rooster for offside... and Kyle Flanagan is attempting to force the game into golden point. Goal attempt from the sideline, 30 metres out... and he gets it!

PENALTY GOAL ROOSTERS to Kyle Flanagan.
