The welcome headache for Bellamy
If only three went into one.
That may have been the thought of Craig Bellamy after seeing Jahrome Hughes, Brodie Croft and Ryley Jacks light up AAMI Park in Thursday night's win over the Dragons.
It has created a very welcome headache at the selection table for when Melbourne's five Origin stars return following Game Three next Wednesday night.
Jahrome Hughes was magic with a game-high 209 metres, seven tackles breaks and assist and two line break assists.
Brodie Croft had 139 metres of his own and Ryley Jacks was an ever calm head in both attack and defence. All three players found their way onto the try sheet.
Given the trio have each filled the No.7 role at stages throughout 2018, it leaves the coach with some thinking to do with regards to who he goes with for the second half of the season.
"You would like to pick them all next week but you can't do that, depending on whether Munster plays or not after Origin," Bellamy said.
"I thought they all did a tremendous job out there tonight. Their communication was really good which wasn't one of our strengths last week but tonight it was pretty spot on. They all ran the ball well, I thought they did a great job."
Storm travel to Manly next Saturday afternoon to take on the Sea Eagles at Brookvale.
