Storm 42, Broncos 12
Absolute demolition job here and the Storm looked every bit as dominant as the scoreline suggests. The marched into Suncorp and completely torched the home side. Fantastic showing from all the big names in the middle and the blokes out wide, especially young Curtis Scott who looked fantastic. Thanks for following along, we'll be back again tomorrow.
Smith throws it over from in front. 42-12.
Addo-Carr scores on the siren!
Well I spoke too soon! On the last play of the game, the Broncos swing it wide and JAC takes the intercept and then strolls over the tryline. Terrible pass from Hunt and that sums up the contest.
Slater takes an intercept and finds Curtis Scott in support who is ankle tapped - a play later Nelson Asofa-Solomona loses it and that should be the last meaningful play of this contest.
Now Moga knocks on! Five to go as this game is well and truly in hand.Back to top
Roberts is held up now! Glenn goes through a hole and is tackled five out before there's a three on zero out on the wing - but the kick takes too long to get out there and Slater and Chambers hold up Roberts when he finally does catch it!
Addo-Carr is bundled into touch but then Brisbane's next attacking raid ends with Blair dropping the ball cold.
Munster is tackled on the last for a handover - and then after a big break from Nikorima, Benji Marshall loses the ball 20m out!
Brisbane drive down the field before a grubber is well taken by Vunivalu, who then wins a penalty. What a game he's had tonight.
Smith bounces one off the post! 36-12.Back to top
Smith goes himself!
This is a carve up. The wily hooker goes himself and this game is well and truly over.
This is ridiculous footy from Melbourne. Another break for Scott and the set ends with Cronk winning a repeat set with a superb kick from 20m out.
No mistake from right in front. 32-12.
Melbourne go back-to-back through Slater!
They're turning it on here. They spread it left early in the count inside their own half and after Addo-Carr makes a huge burst down the wing, Slater is there to back up and jog around to put it down beneath the posts.
Smith converts. 26-12.Back to top
Kahu slots it! 20-12.
Mead scores in the corner!
A huge break from Alex Glenn who is chased down a few metres short of the line. With the Storm looking wide to the right the winger catches them napping with the narrowest of spaces down the left from dummy half. He had next to no room to work with but somehow got it down!
Vunivalu goes close again!
They go short sie and Slater puts the winger away down the right...Kahu who comes across and the Fijian tries to offload back to Scott, but it goes forward.
The Broncos come again but the kick on the last is softly chipped to Slater who shows great awareness to stretch out and put one foot back into the in-goal before making the catch.
Brisbane go so close again! The bomb on the last is hauled in by Moga who pops it back to Pangai Jr but the next pass is intercepted by Cam Smith of all people!Back to top
