  • Storm Named Best, Roosters 9th in Questionable Study.

    Apparently winning back-to-back premierships in the toughest sport in the world counts for little. It was over five years and took a lot of things into consideration, but even so I think the Roosters are ahead of the Storm, who have only one premiership in that time...

    The Melbourne Storm have beaten the Crusaders and the NSW Breakers to be crowned the best sporting team in Australasia over the last five years.

    Following an analysis of each team's win percentage, ladder performance and stability across 16 different competitions, the Storm came out on top.

    Perennial Super Rugby powerhouse the Crusaders, who were last year's winners for being the most solid team over the past 25 years, landed in second place, with women's cricket side the NSW Breakers taking out the bronze.

    Sydney FC was the top A-League side, taking out fourth place after a period featuring two grand final wins and two Premier's Plates.

    Gain Line Analytics director and former Wallabies prop Ben Darwin said the analysis, which looked at 8210 individual matches over 138 teams, said the study looked to determine which side was the most "stable".

    "It's about running a club in a good manner, and one of the things we focus on is clubs that develop instead of buying the answer," he said. "You can either have a short-term fix or long-term success."

    "The Storms and Crusaders, they have an internal focus on how they recruit."

    Next on the list was another New Zealand Super Rugby outfit, the Hurricanes, in fifth with Victoria's Sheffield Shield side sixth. The first AFL club on the list, 2017 and 2019 premiers Richmond, came in seventh.

    Sydney Roosters were the second NRL side on the list, coming in eighth, with the Cronulla Sharks also made the list in 25th spot.

    Darwin said the most successful sides were those that had "good governance", with outlooks that stretched beyond the current season.

    "You've got to move beyond self-interest," he said. "Short-term thinking has huge ramifications for clubs."

    The year differs from last year's inaugural analysis, which looked at the past 25 years. In trimming down the sample period to the past five years, Gain Line has been able to add A-League and Big Bash sides.

    The top 25 includes a variety of sports - both women's and men's - including water polo, baseball and ice hockey.

    "We wanted to shine a light on teams that normally don’t of a lot of attention," Darwin said. "Just because they don't get attention doesn't mean they’re not excellent."

    As a result of the study, the Melbourne Storm were on Wednesday presented with the opportunity to make a donation to a charity. The club chose to donate to the Leukaemia Foundation in parallel with coach Craig Bellamy and winger Sandor Earl's participation in the world's greatest shave.

    I'm guessing 2016 counted against us heavily

      Love it. Storm the best sporting team in the world in the last five years, but the second best NRL team in that time.

      Don't you love how statistics can be used.

          That seems like a very personal bias and brings into question the integrity of their results for mine.

          How you achieve success shouldn't be a measure when measuring the best, the proof is in the pudding. It's clear they've put a huge value on Melbourne's ability buy young kids and develop them but I would argue that's subjective. For example I don't think they have long term solutions for Cronk and Smith and will struggle when Smith retires.

            Holy Smoke just made the 8!

            And the panel was Al Gore, Greta Thunberg, Prince Willy and Adam Bandt of the "How Dare You" organisation.

              Cronulla are on here? The same team that cheated the cap a few years ago?

                  Nah Jax FC, I think that you'll find that the judges included Rupert Murdoch who put climate change in last place. Cory Bernardi who just got his vote in before retiring on the day that his hefty parliamentary pension kicked in (he also put climate change last with an assurance that God would save us), Alan Jones who had to be pulled off during proceedings because he wanted to be ranked first (he also put climate change dead last) and, finally, Tony Abbott who accepted a proxy from a judge currently unavailable in Pentridge - Cardinal Pell who also, surprisingly, ranked climate change last, well behind Altar Boys.

                      What a load of rubbish, are these the same mob who made a poll of best national team and had the women 7S in second place whilst the opals and boomers outside the top 10!!! They also had the Wallaroos ( don’t know what they play) in top 10??
                      seriously anyone can write anything and stats can be manipulated so easily to mean anything. Who fkn cares? Who held the trophy up aloft for the last 2 years? Won the WCC and is gunning for another soon?
                      let the storm be applauded for being selected by some wanna be and let us roosters fans enjoy our glory days.
