Thursday night streak lives on!

In their 13 years calling AAMI Park home, the men in purple have never lost a Thursday night match-up. This strange streak was raised to 12 straight mid-week wins at the rectangular stadium after the Melbourne side recorded a solid 20-point win over the Roosters.

Three's the charm

Xavier Coates put on a fine performance in front of a loud home crowd, laying down three tries in the pouring rain, his fourth career hat-trick.

Sliding over the line half-way through the first half to open up Storm's scoring, it was his further two in the opening eight minutes of the second 40 that set up a comfortable lead for his team to take out the win.


Not only did Melbourne dominate the scoreboard, but they also dominated the possession.

Maintaining a cool 59% ownership of the ball in the tricky conditions saw them make the visitors work for even a taste of the Steeden , allowing them to work smarter in attack and defence.
