Storm can't stop streaking Tigers

ALL Craig Bellamy wanted was a win to celebrate his 250th NRL game as coach of the Melbourne Storm but his team just failed to deliver, falling to a 10-6 loss to Wests Tigers on Friday night.

The Tigers spoiled the party at AAMI Park in Melbourne after breaking a 2-2 half-time deadlock in stunning fashion with two tries in four minutes to take a 10-2 lead.

The Storm finally got across the tryline with 10 minutes remaining through Dane Nielsen, with video referee Russell Smith agonising over his decision before ruling the centre had got the ball down.

Five-eighth Gareth Widdop missed the conversion which left his team four points short and the hosts were unable to close the margin in the frantic final minutes.

It was the Tigers' seventh successive win and their first ever in Melbourne and the Storm's second loss of the season.
