Stats that Matter: Round 5 v Raiders

Here are the key stats from Saturday’s tough face-off against the Canberra Raiders in Wagga Wagga. 

82 

Always focused on improvement, Coach Craig Bellamy has highlighted his side’s completion rate as a focus area for the Storm squad over the past weeks. On Saturday, Melbourne stepped up recording an 82% overall completion rate, finishing 33/40 sets. 

38 

After heading to McDonalds Park in Wagga Wagga to face the Raiders, the ground became the 38th venue Melbourne Storm have played for premiership points in. 

It was also the first time the Club visited the regional NSW town and the Storm family did not disappoint making their presence felt with plenty of purple filling the outer. 

After a selfless Round 4, passing on try opportunities to his teammates, No.7 Jahrome Hughes made Round 5 his own earning 2 tries, one in each half. 

The halfback went on to contribute a further 2 linebreaks and 7 tackle breaks, alongside his 8 points. 

Our halves were on fire on Saturday. 

Five-Eighth, Cameron Munster complimented his halves partner Hughes’ efforts and continued his own so-far incredible 2022 performance with 2 try assists, 15 runs for 160m, 1 linebreak and 6 tackle breaks. Unstoppable.
