Junior Rep Report: Round 10

Melbourne Storm’s Jersey Flegg outfit produced a dominant display at AAMI Park on Saturday, running out convincing 20-4 winners over the Parramatta Eels in Round 10.  

Playing the curtain raiser for the NRL match, Storm’s U21’s showcased just how dangerous they can be at their best, producing a polished performance both with ball in hand but also defensively.  


Storm did all the damage on the scoreboard in the first half, scoring two tries inside the first 10-minutes of action, Matthew Hill and Robert Mapa both going over.


Crucially for the home side, Robert Mapa then grabbed his second try on the eve of the break, giving them momentum and a commanding 16-0 lead heading into the sheds.


Coming out of halftime, Storm continued to pile on the pressure, centre Liam Williams capping his strong performance off with a try off the back of the scrum, racing away to score in the 43rd minute. 


Young half Stanley Huen also had a night out, commanding the field and having a hand in nearly every Storm try in what was a memorable performance in the purple jersey.


The Eels tried to mount a second half comeback but could do very little about Storm’s resolute defence, the hosts repelling wave after wave of Eels attack on their own goal line. 


Saturday’s win has kept Storm in touch with the pointy end of the table, heading into next week’s bye only trailing the 4th placed Knights by one-point.
