    Way to make a question that had nothing to do with Penrith, all about Penrith, quite impressive

    This is the last week for byes. Then we can look at the table properly.

    I had a little [email protected] with the late tries but to be honest I think it's ridiculous that teams have to be depleted for an origin game, especially when the series has already been won and lost. No other sport weakens it's main competition for the sake of a 3 game series like rugby league does.

    Always use the fox sports ladder, so dumb the nrl.com one doesn't factor in byes until the round is over.

    I can’t remember either side defending a set on their try line without conceding?

    Either way what a cracking game to attend.

    Congratulations Storm.

    Absolutely shattered over the result. Only we could f**k up the best opportunity to get a win in Melbourne for the 1st time since 1999. To have 50 put on us by a side missing 9 regular 1st graders is f**king disgraceful. Nicholls' NRL career will be one of the shortest in history and our so called coach and leadership group should be ashamed of themselves.

    We will fall apart from here.

    Absolute cracker tonight, and a very even contest for 65 minutes. For a team that supposedly “haven’t clicked” this year Melbourne are doing OK.

    Oh dear.
    The second string Storm players were better than their Saints counterparts.
    Defence was certainly a priority.

    Wow what a score line. Seems like the score doesn’t reflect the closeness of the match

    Thanks for putting us in first spot Storm :)

    I love the chance to see some of the developing players a little early. Also, it's hilarious when some teams have fans complaining about missing players.

    Boo hoo. You've been dominant with these players and you'll have them back well before the semis. Poor dears. Don't want your players getting accolades and big extra match payments? Tell them to stop performing so well.

    origin time is a good time to give the young players some experience. They did good.

    Until the last quarter hour that is. 24 unanswered points in 14 minutes.
