Seriously, the Broncos looked right in this game when they scored that try against the run of play through Xavier Coates and then steadied for the next 15 minutes after that.
But what about the Ryan Papenhuyzen show? There’s only one man they’ll be worshipping over the Easter weekend in league circles down in Melbourne. James Tedesco might have released his Hat-Trick Teddy book for kids this week, but little Papi has four tries before half-time.
What about the Broncos? It’s the familiar tale, isn’t it? As soon as something goes wrong, there’s not a lot of resilience there. You just can’t be conceding four tries that quickly at this level. They’ve only had 46 per cent of the ball and completed at 75 per cent in the first half. The returning Payne Haas has been great with 97 metres while Jake Turpin has 30 tackles.
Papenhuyzen has a game-high 192 metres for the Storm while Tui Kamikamica leads all tacklers for the Storm with 24.
Anyone prepared to predict how many tries Papenhuyzen finishes the night with? Six? Seven? The Clive Churchill Medal winner is having a night out.
