We know what we’re in for against aggressive Cronulla side: Smith

1 min read

Melbourne skipper Cameron Smith says the Storm know what they’re in for when they face Cronulla for the minor premiership in round 26 of the NRL.

The Storm play the Sharks this weekend with the winner claiming the J.J Gillitan shield.

Smith said the Storm hadn’t forgotten their round four loss at Shark Park.

“They played a really aggressive style of footy that night, they really got stuck into us. I don’t expect too much different Saturday night to be honest,” Smith said.

“It really comes down to the way we handle their physicality and their aggression. I don’t think we handled it very well last time we played them.

“These guys are very good at being aggressive and trying to put you off your game, we just can’t allow that to happen.

“We’ve just got to stick to our game plan and whatever happens we just need to carry that game out.”
