In both victories, including the latest over South Sydney on Sunday night, the usually efficient Storm have delivered a patchy performance, letting themselves down with poor ball control through the middle of the match. Against Gold Coast this Saturday night, Bellamy has set his side a challenge. In the opening two rounds, the Storm uncharacteristically trailed Canberra and Souths in completion of their sets. In their 24-10 win over the Rabbitohs, it was 29 from 40 sets at 73 per cent compared to Souths 29/37 at 75 per cent. And the Storm was five per cent less than the Raidersin their Round 1 match. While others might be simply satisfied with the wins, it didnt escape the meticulous coach. Both games weve played weve been out-controlled with the footy, he said. The opposition in both games have had better percentage of completions. Its a bit of a concern and its something well be focused on this week. Two-try hero fullback Billy Slater was missing from the main training group yesterday after suffering a foot injury against Souths. Slater underwent a scan on Monday which cleared him of any damage and Bellamy expected him to be back into full training again today. Weve got a few bumps and bruises, and Billys one of those guys, he said. It was a pretty tough game on Sunday night. Most of them should be OK to go on the weekend. Melbourne retained the same 17 players who had success against the Rabbitohs but Bellamy said Territorian Will Chambers, who returned to league from a stint in rugby union, was putting pressure on the backs after playing in their feeder teams. Hes got a couple of habits from union that are specific to their game with defence but hes getting better and better every week, Bellamy said. Hes really carrying the ball well and were really happy with his progress, so I dont think it will be too long that we see him playing NRL.
