Storm crush Raiders 68-4

6:42 pm on 4 August 2013

Melbourne erased any doubts as to their NRL premiership credentials as they flexed their muscle to hand Canberra their worst ever defeat in a 68-4 hammering at Canberra Stadium.

Looking to win at home for the 13th straight game, the Raiders were instead embarrassed by the reigning premiers, the Storm running in 12 tries in a breathtaking performance.

The defeat eclipsed the 54-3 loss to Parramatta in their debut campaign in 1982, while the 64-point winning margin matched the Storm's best when they beat Wests Tigers 64-0 in 2001.
