A quick recap of the 2016 NRL Telstra Premiership NRL Grand Final
Last year’s NRL Telstra Premiership Grand Final was truly a case of David vs Golliath! Having played in six Grand Finals in the past 10 years and winning the 2016 minor premiership, the Melbourne Storm were hot favourites to put their opponents, the Cronulla Sutherland Sharks, to the sword on the NRL’s biggest day in 2016! The Sharks had been defeated by the Storm in the final game of the Home and Away season to decide the minor premiers and had not played in a Grand Final since 1997, let alone won a premiership in the club’s 50 year history! However, as many commentators and analysts like to point out, history doesn’t mean much in a Grand Final, and the Sharks proved this to be right by jumping to an early 8-0 lead. The Storm hung tough though, and despite dominating possession in the first half, the Sharks were unable to extend on their 8 point lead by the break.
The Storm must have received a fair spray from coach, Craig Bellamy, at halftime, because after the break they looked like a different side. The Storm scored two tries in quick time, both of which were clinically converted by Storm captain, Cameron Smith, to take the lead 12-8 in no time. At this stage it looked like the class, experience and momentum of the Storm would be too great for the Sharks to overcome and the Storm would run away with the game, but the Sharks weren’t willing to let their dominant first half display go to waste! Andrew Fifita responded with an inspirational play to beat five Storm defenders from close range and score a try which was then converted to give the Sharks a 14-12 lead with just 9 minutes left in the game! Despite the Storm having several opportunities to steal victory from the jaws of defeat in the dying minutes of the game, they failed to capitalise and the Sharks defence held together just enough to ensure that October 2, 2016 was the greatest day in the club’s history!
