After Billy will be sweet for Storm


space for Munster’s athleticis­m to shine.

How the Storm will fit Munster and Slater into the same team remains a mystery – they face a problem usually reserved for State of Origin teams.

“Bill is doing a fair bit of work with Cameron,” Storm coach Craig Bellamy said.

“There’s no better teacher than Billy on fullback play.

“The younger generation don’t seem to watch a heap of football but Cameron is one guy that does watch a lot and watches himself a lot.

“He understand­s how lucky he is to have someone of that ilk teaching him so he’s taking it all in. He still has a fair way to go.”

The Storm can still make the top four. Their victory over the Titans moved them to sixth position on 26 competitio­n points.

South Sydney occupy fourth spot on 28 points but the Storm have a superior for and against to the premiers.

The Titans slumped to their 13th loss.

However their first half yesterday was among their best performanc­es this year.

The Titans off-loaded at will from the opening set, running the ball on the fifth play and chip kicking on the third tackle.

The Storm were rattled as the Titans broke their line twice and bombed one try.

However, their domination of the opening 10 minutes only resulted in one try at halftime.

Straight after halftime, the Storm showed their class with Munster orchestrat­ing a try for Marika Koroibete.

“To concede three tries in the last 10 minutes was disappoint­ing,” Henry said.

“Munster plays similar to Billy there, hunting around the middle. He made us look pedestrian a couple of times.”
