The Last Time We Met the Melbourne Storm at Adelaide Oval, Roosters fans experienced all available emotions in a nail-biting and thrilling win on iconic ground.
Last Time We Met at Adelaide Oval
The Roosters started the match looking the better side by far, scoring the first of the game through Club veteran Mitchell Aubusson after he ran a perfect line to the in-goal.
It didn't take long for the tide to turn in the Storm's direction though, scoring their first points through Josh Addo-Carr after intercepting an Aidan Guerra long ball and backing that up with a long range effort to Brodie Croft in the following set of six.
They showed no signs of slowing up in the second half either, scoring the opening two tries of the stanza again through Addo-Carr and an incredibly acrobatic effort from Suliasi Vunivalu on the right edge.
Latrell Mitchell hit back as the clock hit the 60 minute mark, only for Jahrome Hughes to extend the lead for the Storm and nab a 24-12 lead over the Tricolours.
It was now or never if the Roosters were any chance of snatching a win, and the fans would go on to thank them for choosing now.
They scored their first through Daniel Tupou after a nice cut-out ball from Mitchell Pearce, followed by a BRILLIANT try at the siren to Blake Ferguson on the back of some clever set up work from Luke Keary.
Through a sea of booing Melbourne Storm fans, it was up to Michael Gordon to slot a conversion from near the sideline to lock it up and he did just that.
The Roosters fought their way to good field position, and Pearce put boot to ball to help his team to a hard earned and memorable Tricolours victory.
We'll be looking to back up that classic this Friday when we face the Melbourne Storm once again at the iconic Adelaide Oval!
