Round 5 Photo Action - Wests Tigers V Melbourne Storm 



(Sterlo mode) "We can see here that Matt Geyer (left) and Matt Orford (right) appear to be in two minds as the Wests Tigers attack comes their way.........

....... but as play continues, it is clear that all hands are on deck trying to wrap the ball carrier up..........
........ and it's try time for Wests Tigers hooker Ciriaco Mescia, his first for 2001. This pose featured on the next Footy Show.
The Melbourne jumpers feature the player's name which to me is very welcomed. It might also remind TV commentators that players do have real names and not just nicknames.

During the half time break, did the Video Referee tell referee Steve Clark to do the kick off? It looks like it in this shot........

.... however, it is actually the Tigers who have to kick off. Steve Clark blows time on and Tiger John Simon is about to send the ball deep into Storm territory. 

Tigers winger John Hopoate is surrounded by Melbourne Storm players but still looked like getting the ball away.

Storm players walk off for half time and can not seem to believe the scoreline. 
Memo to Melbourne - there are no places to hide on Leichhardt Oval.......
Memo received!
Shortly after this photo, there was a fight between Tigers player Matt Seers (1) and Stormer Aaron Moule (3).
John Carlaw (2) waits to receive the ball after a tackle.

"Gee whiz, are all of these Tigers called Don?"

What would a page be without an ingoal shot?
