Xavier Coates continues to prove he's found a home in Melbourne, ringing in an overall 18 tries in 15 games at AAMI Park after going over the line twice within two minutes in the Round 15 match-up.
After scoring a try on his first trip down south with the Broncos, the winger has gone on to score one or more tries in nine separate home games since pulling on purple.
214 run metres
Cameron Munster had a performance full of attack, clocking in 214 run metres for the Storm contingent.

With 164 run metres, 11 hit-ups and 20 tackles made, the prop was a stand-out in the home side.
