Melbourne Storms to NRL win
Melbourne Storm has won its 2nd NRL Grand Final in two years, defeating Parramatta Eels 23 to 16 in TV's other big Grand Final.
Melbourne Storm has won its 2nd NRL Grand Final in four years.
Parramatta came to ANZ Stadium riding a wave of momentum but the young Eels found themselves in foreign territory and against the southern team.
The Storm scored 23 to the Eels’ 16 sealed in the dying minutes of the game. Parramatta made a comeback in the last ten minutes, but it was not enough.
The last minute win mirrored the last minute win in the AFL Grand Final last week.
Melbourne viewers are already getting worked up by the Nine telecast after the network cut to Nine News before seeing the trophy presentation.
