Storm slay Tigers

1:52 pm on 5 August 2014

Melbourne Storm have continued their ominous surge towards the National Rugby League finals with a 28-6 defeat of Wests Tigers in Sydney last night with their superstar halfback Cooper Cronk leading the way.

Cronk laid on four of the visitors' five tries as the embattled Tigers' finals hopes took a blow in a tribute game to their injured former forward Simon Dwyer.

Melbourne have now won three straight since the end of the State of Origin period, to move into sixth spot on the NRL ladder.
