    Manly have only beaten Melbourne twice in Melbourne.

    Rd 24 2009 and Rd 6 2010

    Both times Brett Stewart was out injured as he is tonight.

    There's something to cling too lol

    That win in 2009 was a particularly proud one though Melbourne nearly stole it at the death.

    The 2010 game was bull****. We raced to a 16-0 lead before the refs helped the Storm back into the game. There were several dubious calls that went against us but none stood out more than Matai getting penalized for knocking over a Melbourne player as a result of being shoved in the back by another Melbourne player when he was chasing the ball. Watmough also legitimately won us possession in one play the ball but possession was inexplicably given back to Melbourne.

    IIRC Smith knocked on from dummy half 3 times in that match. It was justice really as we were robbed of a 13+ victory.

    I loved the 2010 one we were the last team that played them before the truth came out about the 2 sets of books. There were about 40 of us upstairs at the leagues club it was great.

    The way Melbourne played that night was like they were already told about what was about to go down.

    2010 just wasn't a good year for Melbourne against us.

    This also happened.

    The 09 win makes Farrar a Manly immortal for me, cutting down the wanker as he was running in to score the match winner

    Great moment
