Melbourne took a four point lead into half time but at 12-8, it was still anyone's game and the Warriors had to much class in the end for a Melbourne side fast losing touch with the top eight.
After eleven rounds, Melbourne only have four wins and sit on eight points whereas the Warriors have cemented a place in the top four and show they are not a one man team and are currently on 18 points and in second spot if other results go their way.
Reallistically the Warriors are three wins from confirming a place in the top eight but should be looking for a top four finish and a home semi final. The question is, is there a better team than the Warriors at the moment?
