Embracing the Storm way

A sign of a good team is your ability to turn it around when everything seems to be going against you.

As Storm players headed for the sheds at half time the collective look of frustration was clear across their faces.

However rather than throw their hands up in dismay they answered back the Storm way - by gritting their teeth and getting on with it.

Sure enough their steely resolve saw the tide turn back in their favour.

As Melbourne's completion rate rose and the possession mounted, the attacking brilliance Storm fans have fallen in love with over the last 12 months emerged as they saw their side run in three tries to nil after the break

"It looked like we weren't quite as organised as we'd like to be in that first half but we sorted that out in the second half," Craig Bellamy said.

"We looked like we were much more controlled with the footy and probably simplified a few things. I thought we defended better.

"It was a tale of two halves to be quite honest but we had much more control in the second half."
