Throwback Thursday: One for the record books
On a Thursday night in 2001 under the roof of Docklands Stadium, Storm would face Wests Tigers in what would prove to be an unforgettable night for the purple faithful.
The Tigers were in just their second year of existence after the Western Suburbs Magpies and Balmain Tigers merged at the start of the 2000 season.
The men in purple had fallen to the joint venture club 10-40 at Leicchardt Oval back in Round 5 and had endured an indifferent year with an 8-9 record.
Wests Tigers had won just two of their previous 12 games before heading to Melbourne and while both sides may have struggled to find their best football after 40 minutes at Docklands one team would finally discover it.
