Billy Slater showed why he’s the most dangerous attacking player in rugby league with a dynamic display at the back that tore the Titans apart. The Queensland and Australian No.1 scored two tries – one an amazing, athletic, thief-in-the-night effort just millimetres short of the dead-ball line – to turn the tide and give Melbourne the ascendancy.

The first half was an arm wrestle – Melbourne entering the break up just 4-0 – before Slater’s athletic efforts got the Storm brewing.

Amazingly, the Storm raced to a 30-6 victory despite conceding an additional 113 metres in total runs throughout the match. However the line-breaks (seven to one) and missed-tackles (nine compared with 27) statistics proved the visiting team’s dominance.
