Storm lap up try-time
It was only a matter of time.
On Monday night the weeks of hard work were finally rewarded when the Storm attack clicked into gear, putting on eight tries against the Warriors in a 42-0 win.
It had been a performance in the making after the players and coaching staff had worked tirelessly to correct an attack that had shown flashes of brilliance but lacked consistency early in the season.
That attacking prowess came the fore on ANZAC Day, much to the delight of the purple faithful, as Storm record their biggest score of the season.
While the points had not come so freely in the opening seven rounds, the belief in the playing group had remained strong.
“We are really happy with how things went, we thought we executed really well,” Storm five-eighth Blake Green said.
“Something we’ve been working hard on in the first part of the season is our attack and it is just pleasing it came together on Monday night.
“We were probably a little bit guilty of trying too hard I think. That is probably why it took a few weeks to come together but it was always going to happen.
“We are pretty diligent on our preparation and how we go about the style we want to play.”
The challenge will now be to back up the performance up on the Gold Coast this Sunday.
“Our main thing was getting a bit of continuity, timing and intent carrying the footy closer to the try line,” Green said.
“It was great it all came together and hopefully we can keep improving throughout the season.”
Storm currently have a 6-2 record and sit third on the NRL ladder.
