Storm has been dragged out late for an absolute classic win against the Roosters – victory is guaranteed after a spectacular bombing attempt at the minute of death.
With Sam Walker giving a fantastic chip kick to Cityley Tupuniuar, the Roosters are about to take the lead again, having already given a kick to try once.
The back-rower ran over it and caught the ball, only to be freed by diving over the tri-line.

Melbourne took full advantage, climbing to the top with a 20-meter tap, with Felice Kaufusi scattering them and scoring after just a few tackles.
A 12-point swing in the blink of an eye, and Storm won by eight.
It was an occasional hateful incident, especially when Walker was taken off the field after colliding with Kaufusi to create a tackle.
The Melbourne forward could be in the hot water when he was seen leading with his arm or elbow while Walker was doing a tackle – forcing the young rooster for an HIA.
It was a terrible time for the rosters, who had already lost their other half, Luke Kerry, to head knock.
Online fans were outraged, and Walker was removed for an HIA – but Kaufusi was not quoted.
“I’ll say it – I think he meant it the way we saw it. He knew exactly what he was doing,” said Greg Alexander of Fox League.
Andrew Voss added to the Fox League, “He knew where his arm was with the defender – so it was again after the match.”
“You will be the judge at home.”
Walker was able to come back and take the kick that could have won their match – but it wasn’t for the Tricolors, who dropped to eighth place in the stairs after beating arch-rivals South earlier today.
Winger Grant Anderson rewarded Craig Bellamy with his first cap in the NRL, winning a double.
“It’s a moment I’ve dreamed of all my life,” said the Fox League debutant.
“You dreamed of it as a child and I can’t believe it came true.”
Marion Save also scored twice, before Kaufusi’s match-winner.
“I think we were just there, and maybe there was some luck,” Jahrom Hughes told Fox League.
“We were really lucky to get out of it with a win … we have a few things to work on.”
