Storm survive injuries and Eels

1' Friday night footy is underway at AAMI Park!

5' Three repeat sets to start the game...

8' TRY!!! Will Chambers collects a perfect Billy Slater grubber kick to get us off and running

17' The Eels are over but we're going to the bunker... No try is the call due to obstruction

20' We'll take another two points! The skipper converts a penalty to extend our lead to eight

27' The skipper has taken a knock to his back. Play stops as he's slow to get to his feet but the champ shakes it off

33' Um, we'll take it. Eels beaten by the shot clock on the goal line drop out. Smith converts the penalty in front of the posts. We lead 10-nil

35' The skipper has gone down the race after converting the penalty. He will be assessed after that knock earlier

INJURY UPDATES: Suliasi Vunivalu (hamstring tightness) & Cameron Smith (back) will not return tonight as a precaution

43' Eels start with much of the possession early but our defence is staying strong

48' OH NELSON! SURELY NOT!??? YESS!! Brodie Croft converts and we edge out to a 16-point advantage

53' Dale Finucane & Nelson Asofa-Solomona have also gone down the race. Nobody on the bench currently but the boys are digging deep!

61' Cameron Munster has been sin binned for a professional foul. Dale Finucane is ready to come back on though. It's all happening at @AAMIPark!

 65' Nelson (ankle) will not return tonight. One left on the bench for the final 15 minutes, come on boys!

 69' Brandon Smith limps from the field now and heads down the race...

 74' TRY!! Curtis Scott adds another and it's a purple party at AAMI Park now!

77' After much deliberation in the Bunker the Eels get their first in the right corner
