The Stat to Fix: Melbourne's surprise mistake makers
As well as bagging 42 tries between them last year, speedsters Suliasi Vunivalu and Josh Addo-Carr finished with an unflattering 61 combined errors – over a quarter of the Storm's 231 mistakes in 2017.
Addo-Carr's 33 errors and Vunivalu's tally of 28 saw them both finish in the NRL's top 10 offenders, but Melbourne front-rower Tim Glasby says his high-flying teammates won't be discouraged by the figures.
"Wingers and those outside backs, they are making those low percentage plays a lot of the time, it's just how the game goes," Glasby says.
"You expect them to have more errors than a front-rower who might just tuck it under his arm.
"Certainly you want to cut down errors wherever you can and those two boys work very hard.
"We love the acrobatics and dynamic things Suli and Josh do, we want to see that from them and I can't imagine it's ever been discouraged by the coaches given what they can do and how they can change a game."
