Finally caught the match video, great game.
Leeds had opportunities to win that match in the second half but they seemed to want to walk the ball in. People talking about Sinfield having a quiet game, thought Maguire didn't really offer much inventiveness close to the Storm line, Ablett did well as did Watkins out wide.
Storm were rock solid in defense, and played the smarter football. Thought the scrum penalty in the first half was a very clever play, with Smith and Cronk directing the play Widdop can be a bit wider out and I thought he always looked to offer something when he got the ball. And Smith could teach Golden Boot a thing or two about distance on the goal line DO, Smith was getting his almost to half way.
Thought the ref did ok as well, found it amusing when he told Atchurch he needed to 'sort your face out pal' and comedy scrum moment when the Rhinos formed the scrum to stop the clock and the ref reminded them they weren't playing that rule! (Does show the need to sort those variances out though).
