Despite undefeated starts to the season and looking like they wouldn't lose a game, the Melbourne Storm (after 9 wins) and the Melbourne Vixens (after 6 wins) have both lost their first respective games this season.
The Storm were ahead until the 71st minute, however a try from former Storm player Jeremy Smith was converted by Todd Carney to lift the home side to a 12-10 win.
The Vixens on the other hand were beaten 55-52 by a rejuvenated NSW Swifts in Sydney. The Swifts, who claimed their fourth straight win, were down by eight goals at 1/4 Time however did not adjust quickly enough to changes made by the home team in the second quarter and suffered for the remainder of the match.
