This is it, team! The NRL season is about to come to it’s close and we are so thrilled to be sharing this victory with our partners at Melbourne Storm. As you may know, the Storm have been based on the Sunshine Coast this year due to COVID-19 restrictions in their home city, and there is no doubt that Queenslanders from all over the state have taken the boys under their wings and showed them a bit of the NRL spirit up here. Beyond that, we feel an affinity in being a part of the Storm team, as we too are a primarily Sunshine Coast-based company.
In light of their big win against Canberra Raiders last weekend, and as part of our goodbye to the boys and this year’s season, we’ve decided to share a bit of a season recap of everything you need to know about Melbourne Storm before watching the Grand Final against Penrith Panthers, this Sunday 25 October at ANZ Stadium.
After finishing the premiership second on the ladder, we think it’s important to look back at the boys’ track record this season.
- Won: 16
- Lost: 4
- Average winning margin: 18.9
- Golden point: 1
2020 Season Highlights
This season has been absolutely packed full of memorable moments for the team, but there were a few that really stood out to us as honourable mentions. Let’s take a look back.
Storm Triumph Over Warriors
There is no better place to start when considering season highlights than Storm’s absolutely triumphant win against the NZ Warriors. Coming out on top of a 50 – 10 point score in round 7, Storm really solidified their place in this year’s season early on (and kept the momentum rolling)!
‘Foxx’ Outruns the Tigers
It’s no secret that Josh Addo-Carr (The Foxx) is possibly the fastest player in the entire NRL, and has more than his fair share of sensational tries. Of course, Addo-Carr added another to the list in Round 19 against the Wests Tigers. If you didn’t catch that moment live, you can check it out at this link but put it this way… we didn’t realise that foxes could fly.
Smith & Bellamy’s Friendly Exchange
When it comes to highlights, we could not look past Craig Bellamy throwing ‘the bird’ at Storm skipper, Cameron Smith after he defeated Bellamy’s try record of 46. It was clear to spectators that there was some kind of friendly competition happening here, as the cameras interchanged between Smith’s smiling grin and Bellamy’s middle finger (which you can replay at this link). With the future of Cameron Smith’s career in question, this moment will take its rightful place in history with the rest of this year’s season.
What Will The Grand Final Bring?
Well, we hope that it’s a big old Grand Final WIN this weekend! But, as you all know, it’s anyone’s game until the time is up.
