The Mount Smart club were trounced 50-10 in last year's annual ANZAC Day NRL match, having been down 38-nil at halftime.
Kearney says it's something they've discussed as they don't want a repeat of it tonight.
He says they missed the start, but in his opinion, the Storm haven't played that well since.
Kick off from Melbourne's at 9:50.
