With the 2017 regular season over and the finals upon us, it is time to look back on the regular season that has been and the moments that will be remembered for years to come.

As always leave your thoughts in the comments.


The Storm’s Year of Dominance

Most people have known for weeks, possibly months now that the Melbourne Storm were going to take out the 2017 NRL minor premiership with 44 points, 20 wins and 4 losses.

The Storm finished with 6 points more than second placed side the Sydney Roosters. The Storm were also tied favourites with the Penrith Panthers to win the premiership, and have held their status as favourites to win the competition.

This effort by Melbourne could be motivated by the fact that the Storm now hasn't won the premiership since they beat the Canterbury-Bankstown Bulldogs 14-4 in the 2012 Grand Final, five years ago.

Another possible motivation is the fact that it is star halfback Cooper Cronk’s last year at the club.
