Slater: Defence key for improvement
Storm fullback Billy Slater says he believes his side will look for a solid defensive display as they look to return to the winner’s list in Round 6.
“We try and measure ourselves off our performances rather than the result,” Slater said prior to Storm’s annual Billy’s Buddies clinic on Monday.
“Certainly the performances over the last couple of weeks haven’t been up to our standard.
“I think the discipline and giving away a few penalties is certainly one area. I think another area is our defence.
“I’m sure Craig and the coaching staff will be focusing on that over the next week or so.”
Storm were able to enjoy a light-hearted start to their seven day break on Monday with the club’s annual Billy’s Buddies clinic. The entire playing group spent time with young fans in a day focused on good health, teamwork and having fun.
“It’s great, here for the annual Billy’s Buddies clinic,” Slater said.
“I personally really look forward to this day, my kids are here today and a lot of the other boys’ children are here.
“I know some parents have travelled interstate and [from regional Victoria] to come down for this day.
“It’s great to see so many purple shirts with number one on their back and hopefully everyone can have a great day here.”
