Storm demolish Souths at Olympic Park

In what started as an evenly contested match, The Melbourne Storm soon ran away with the match and made Souths look embarrassing at times. Souths scored first from a clever kick by prop Paul stringer but that was the end of their joy as Melbourne slowly started to build some momentum, with Souths making a lot of silly mistakes and giving away undisciplined penalties.

Melbourne went to the break leading 12-6 but raced away with the game in the second stanza to run out winners 44-6 in front of a small but parochial Melbourne crowd. Best for Melbourne were Orford, Ross and Kearns. Melbourne now see themselves back in the top eight and look to gain some momentum after a much needed victory.
