The Falcons have moved into top spot on the Intrust Super Cup ladder with a convincing 38-14 win over the CQ Capras.
Sunshine Coast scored four tries to one in the first half and never looked back.
While the score line was convincing, there remains plenty of room for improvement.
Storm prop Tui Kamikamica was the standout performer on the day.
“The team as a group probably lacked energy but he was one who didn’t,” Storm development coach Aaron Bellamy said.
“He was running hard from the start, had good line speed in defence and he played long minutes as well which was good for a guy in his position.
“If he can do that for a long time in the Queensland Cup, that will hold him in good stead for when he gets his next crack.”
Brandon Smith also showcased several eye-catching moments through the match/
“Brandon Smith had some good parts to his game which he contributed in both attack and defence and changed the momentum of the game a couple of times,” Bellamy said.
“He was certainly one who stood out.”
The Falcons now travel to face their toughest test of the season against the Dolphins in Redcliffe.
