Jesus christ burrow! This game is pure class thought Melbourne were gonna run away with it but its game on now. Storm seem vulnerable out wide but Smith Cronk and Slater are just out of this world.

Fantastic first half, very even. Surprised at just how easy are finding it to get at them out wide, especially late on in the tackle count.

Excellent first half, Leeds did well to weather the early pressure and have come back stronger.

we saw England trouble the Aussies like this at Wembley. Good tactics from Leeds.

Storm IMO are just an slightly above average pack and three quarters superbly well coached but just happen to have the 3 best players in the world playing in the most vital positions. Peacock has been absolutely class led the line brilliantly followed closely by Delaney. Its important Leeds don't fall behind, Smith and Cronk 9 times out of 10 can hold onto a Leed for the remaining 25 minutes of the game. They look absolutely terrified of Watkins and besides his blunder Burrow has been superb. They've neutralised Sir Kev but at the expense of players running out to stop him they've left themselves open out wide. Also Stevie Ward surprisingly going well at second row he hasn't been out muscled at all.

Roll on the second half this is thoroughly entertaining.

Jamie Peacock, as in last year's World Club Challenge, has been absolutely magnificent. Honestly, on the first half showing he looks to be England's best front row forward by a mile.

Kallum Watkins is showing the kind of attacking threat that he'll need to produce for England against Greg Inglis - he's missing Hardaker and Jones-Bishop though...

Come on Leeds!

Inglis will eat Watkins alive

Did he really want a red card for a late push? Or even for a shoulder charge?

I dont mind Hemmings but he was being a tool there. Im not sure why he thinks outlawed means red card. High tackles are outlawed but not automatically red cards.

That's what I was going to put. Very annoying to listen to.
