If we get so low on Soward’s power ranking after crushing the Doggies in Round 1, will Soward drop the Storm down to the bottom if the Doggies beat them tonight? ;)

That's not how Power Rankings work. All teams are linked to a base value (based on their opinion in the preseason). Soward understands it. You are following the stuff.co.nz methodology of rating teams where one off wins suddenly means you are a top 4 team.

I have been watching the stats. The Storm defence was definitely below par in the first 20. Maybe like the commentators said they took the Dogs easy. They are grinding back in through although to be fair the Dogs have two important players missing.

Storm 34 missed tackles and 28 ineffective tackles :eek:...yet they still win...maybe the 8 - 4 penalty count had something to do with it.
