We can see how the refs are going to officiate this.
We must all hang together or, most assuredly, we shall all hang separately

Hughes not getting involved at all yet.

Feels a little bit lucky to be in front. A bit of Suli magic saves us... Close so far.

Hopefully the Warriors tire midway through the second half and we run away with it.

Finucane immediately added starch to the middle. So good to have him back.

Yeah the strip ball rule is a bit of an oddity if uiu look carefully at it's wording. So that strip on Hoffman, technically is ok IMHO.

It's a tight one, all the Storm boys are a playing off the same score-sheet. You can see NAS and J Bromwich playing it easy as they go, nothing too overly fancy.

Great to see Vunivalu being played into his strength from Hughes. More if that in the second half.

No real power and brawn from the Warriors. Hope we smother then well in the second half.

Seriously, how does Hoffman keep his spot!? Put sentiment aside Craig and do what is best for the team.

Yet Warriors get a penalty when Slater does it to Johnson

If this game was a movie it would be like "Speed".
The Storm just had to keep the Bus moving above 80kph and defuse the Bomb.

Was just your basic footy from the Storm, nothing fancy at all, Like Cameron was saying above, it was an ugly win, but at least we take Pole Position :)

I'll take the win but jeez we didn't do much. Defended well but the Warriors were ordinary in attack.

The game didn't answer our halfback question. Hughes was fine but didn't look comfortable.

Hoffman continues to be a liability. Him and Munster have next to no chemistry.
