    A great piece on the short but successful life of the Lightning and their thriving partnership with the NRL’s Melbourne Storm…

    Yes, that was a good article, but it is interesting that they glossed over the salary cap breach by Storm which cost them their 2010 season. It wasn’t a trip, an oversight or a one-off accident; it was a deliberate, cynical and systematic breaking of the rules based on greed by both players and club. I would be interested to see how that episode is analysed in the context of  the culture they brag about, but the journo missed it.

    Probably because the player involved and ppls involved management wise were replaced as soon ad it was found out.

    Other clubs have done alot worse since and not been stripped of any titles.

    Was a horrible time for Storm supporters.
