Melbourne Storm spent all week celebrating the career milestones of Cameron Smith and Billy Slater, but the club’s third musketeer took them to victory against Penrith at AAMI Park on Saturday night.
Two Cooper Cronk drop goals, either side of Peter Wallace’s one-pointer for the visitors, gave the Storm a dogged 18-17 win in front of 13,952 supporters.
