Glasby says near perfection no reason to relax
Tim Glasby says the Storm's 44-10 defeat of the Raiders on Saturday night was almost perfect, but he isn't getting carried away with the push for another minor premiership.
Melbourne scored seven tries against Canberra on Saturday to register their eighth consecutive win, setting up a heavyweight clash against the South Sydney Rabbitohs this Friday.
Despite the recent success, the 29-year-old Origin representative says there's no time to relax.
"Last year was the same - any team can beat anyone on their day," he said.
"We only just beat the Cowboys earlier in the year, and they're sitting down low. It just goes to show any team that shows up and plays well can beat someone right up the top.
"The Tigers have beaten us twice this year and are just outside the eight. It's the way the competition is these days and that's why you don't really read into a top of the table clash too much."
The Queensland Origin prop said having a full list at their disposal - including internationals Billy Slater, Cameron Smith, Will Chambers and Cameron Munster - also helped bolster the Storm's attack against an outclassed Raiders team.
"We've had a few gritty wins during the Origin period and against the Warriors last week," he said.
"We certainly focused on our attack there and it worked on the weekend. I think a bit of continuity helped with that came from everyone training together."
South Sydney scrapped their way to a last-gasp win against the Eels last weekend and boast an impressive line-up lead by brothers Sam, Tom and George Burgess.
"They've obviously got the Burgess boys there, and Damien Cook. He [Cook] gets on the back of those big boys really well," Glasby said.
"I think Jesse [Bromwich], Nelson [Asofa-Solomona] and Kenny [Bromwich] through the middle had a really great start to the game, and we're going to need it from them this week as well.
"I don't think you can really read into the top of the table clash and that sort of stuff. They're good opposition, the Rabbitohs, and we're looking forward to the challenge against them."
