The men in purple put in a determined performance when it mattered most, defeating the Newcastle Knights 20-10 to progress through to the Auckland Nines quarter finals.

Storm needed a win to ensure they stayed alive in the tournament but found themselves behind inside the opening minute of the game.

Co-captain Young Tonumaipea provided the steadier though before Cameron Munster showcased his full repitoire of ball play to dazzle his way through the Knights line for a 10-4 half-time lead.

A sensational blitzing run from Brodie Croft earned Melbourne some breathing space before Tim Glasby turned on the speed to cross as the hooter sounded, sealing the 10-point win.
