Jesse Bromwich knew he had to step up for his Club on Saturday night and he did just that.
The Kiwi prop played 78 of a possible 85 minutes and ran for 198 metres in a remarkable performance to help lead Storm to a golden point win.
Bromwich was the stand-in captain in the absence of Cameron Smith who was away on Origin duty and it was certainly a game worth of a skipper.
“He was particularly outstanding,” Craig Bellamy said.
“For a front rower to play the minutes he did and to play with the effort and energy he did was a great captain’s knock.”
After Dale Finucane went off early in the second half for a concussion test and did not return, Bromwich realised it was his time.
“I just wanted to be out there for as long as I could,” Bromwich said.
“I just wanted to win the match, being captain I lead the way for the younger fellas.
“It was really good to get a lot of minutes out tonight. It was a huge game for us, winning that in golden point so I really enjoyed it.”
