Stats that Matter - Round 8 v Roosters

Milestone man Brandon 'Hectic Cheese' Smith laid 43 bruising tackles in our Golden Point win over the Roosters, the most for any Storm player last night in an all time Thursday night thriller.

With ice in his veins Ryan Papenhuyzen slotted a field goal in the dying seconds to earn us Golden Point overtime, and Paps also powered to the most run metres for us at 195.

Jahrome Hughes played a ripper - he grabbed a double, stepped around the Roosters defence to break the line on one occasion and also notched up 70 fantasy points.

Paps, Suli Vunivalu, Justin Olam, Paul Momirovski, Josh Addo-Carr, Hughesy, Cameron Smith and Kenny Bromwich played the full 85 minutes - the fatigue will be real for those guys today.

We completed at 85% and powered to a total 1,760 run metres, including 682 post contact metres.

Keen to watch the replay once or twice - what a game of footy.
