24 hours after their closest rivals Penrith took out the Roosters, the Melbourne Storm made their own statement by racking up five tries in just 15 minutes against the Tigers

The team’s social media team struggled to keep up as the Storm broke the chalk in the second, fourth, ninth, 12th and 15th minutes at Sunshine Coast Stadium on Saturday night

Melbourne capitalized on their chances in the 20 Tigers with devastating effect, showing no mercy as they cut the orange and black line into pieces

By the time the Tigers recorded their first play-the-ball, the Storm had already taken advantage of 33

What is most embarrassing for visitors, Storm mainstay Nelson Asofa-Solomona, who is 6ft 7in, was able to dive off the interim hooker, despite the absence of Tigers defensemen

In addition to coach Michael Maguire’s woes, the Tigers wasted any chances they had, completing just five of their first 10 sets

As the joint venture appeared to quell the purple assault, Reimis Smith scored a four to extend the margin to 36

“You feel sorry for Michael Maguire,” commentator Matt Russell added, noting that Madge had won just one of twelve games against Storm supremo Craig Bellamy before Saturday night.

NELLLLLLLSON !!!! @ storm go again !! It’s amazing !!! 5 tries in 16 minutes from 5 different players! Big Sexy does BANG and converts for 30-0 Is 100 possible? #NRLStormTigres

When Origin striker Felise Kaufusi crashed, the Storm were leading 40-0 at the break, scoring the most points in a single half for this season

The Storm found themselves just eight points behind the biggest halftime margin in PM history
