Melbourne winger Matt Geyer believes an early season drubbing at the hands of the Sydney Roosters has only fuelled the desire to make amens this weekend at Olympic Park.
Geyer says the Storm hasn't forgotten the 6-34 loss at the Sydney Football Stadium in round nine earlier this year and this Saturday's return leg provides the perfect opportunity to make up for the club's worst defeat of the year.
“The thing that hurt most about that game is that we gave them a bit of a touch up at the start of the match - we played very hard at them,” Geyer said.
“They (Roosters) walked away from that game so wounded, but in the end we felt a lot worse than they did because they had the two competition points.
“Although we weren't battered and bruised we didn't get any competition points which really hurt, so we've got a bit to make up for this week.”
Geyer admits the loss -part of a six game losing streak - stuck in the player's minds and revenge is high on the list of priorities this weekend.
“That loss has been in the back of the boys minds this week. If we do get out there and bash them round a bit then they're going to think oh no, not this again,” Geyer explained.
“If we are going to beat them we should beat them this week…we have a few key players out with injury but I've no doubt that we can still do the job with the players we've got in the side.”
