Melbourne Storm equal best ever start to NRL

10:22 am on 15 April 2012

The Melbourne Storm rugby league side have equalled their best start to a NRL season with a 12-6 win against the Canterbury Bulldogs last night.

The win was the unbeaten competition frontrunner's seventh in succession to match their start to their 2007 campaign.

Meanwhile Manly's title defence continues to crumble.

A 26-14 loss to Gold Coast has resulted in the Sea Eagles slump to eighth spot on the ladder with three wins and four losses.

The Titans have snapped a five-game losing streak.

Meanwhile the Sydney Roosters' decision to play their home game against North Queensland in Darwin has proved a disaster as the Cowboys ran in nine tries to embarrass the Roosters 50-12.
