More NRL News


1. CAMERON MUNSTER - Comfortable at the back but got few opportunities with the ball. 7

2. SULIASI VUNIVALU - Was denied the open space that's made him a tryscoring machine this season. 6.5

3. WILL CHAMBERS - Got the Storm in front with a try in the 64th minute on the back of a strong defensive effort. 7.5

4. CHEYSE BLAIR - Not his greatest showing, giving away an early penalty and caught in-goal a couple of times. 6

5. MARIKA KOROIBETE - Gave away the opening two points for a careless high shot, but made up for it with 176m off 17 runs. 7.5

6. BLAKE GREEN - Made a trysaving tackle on Luke Lewis and proved more than capable in his last outing for the Storm. 7

7. COOPER CRONK - Was kept in check and hardly seen all night - including by Chambers, who could've put him over with two minutes to go. 7

8. JESSE BROMWICH - Proved why he is one of the best props in the game, wriggling over for the Storm's first try. 8

9. CAMERON SMITH - A couple of uncharacteristic errors but no denying his effort with 72 tackles. 8.5

10. JORDAN MCLEAN - Some strong runs overshadowed by a penalty for an ugly lift tackle. 7

12. TOHU HARRIS - A tireless performance from the second-rower with four tackle busts. 8

13. DALE FINUCANE - Not his finest moment with four missed tackles, but worked hard. 6.5


14. KENNY BROMWICH - Effective in his limited minutes before a first-half head clash with Wade Graham. 7

15. TIM GLASBY - Reliable with 27 tackles in 37 minutes. 6.5

16. CHRISTIAN WELCH - Gave away a mindless penalty for a swinging arm on Chad Townsend, on the last tackle late in the game. 4
