In a tight first half the only scores came from Kevin Sinfield and Rob Burrow slotting penalties for Leeds, with Cameron Smith replying with two for Melbourne giving us 4-4 at the break.
In the second period Danny McGuire ran the length-of-the-field scoring a try to put Leeds in front. However Luke MacDougall got one for Melbourne and Smith kicked them in front, finally Anthony Quinn took a late try to give it to the Storm. Final score:
