Great game,thought the officials interpretation of the 10m rule(more like 4m) tonight helped Melbourne negate Souths forward dominance,wifi be interesting if all the play off series will play under these "new" rules.

It'll destroy the forward game Souths have been so good at when the 10m was properly getting enforced earlier in the season. That game was a joke though. I found myself watching the defensive line 'retreat' more than the game. One set in the second half Ashley Klein was marching back 8m at best and Storm players still all in front. Was quite shocking how blatant it was.

I still enjoyed the game and I'm all for less whistle but yeah the 10m was a joke,it will certainly play into the Storms hands if it continues.

Absolutely.

Shocking decision.

Gave Souths prime position.

Good job it didn’t cost Storm the game.

Cracking game. Reckon it was a fair result in the end. Big Sam Burgess fan but it felt like young Christian Welch had his number tonight.

Great result for Storm.

Souths had the moves but there were too handling errors from them. Storm’s never say die approach paid dividends. Billy had a great game.

Exciting game sets up the finals series superbly.
