Stats that matter: Round 24 v Raiders

Check out all the stats that matter from Melbourne Storm's Round 24 win over the Canberra Raiders on Sunday.


Celebrating his 50th Storm game, Young Tonumaipea enjoyed another memorable outing in the Storm jersey, topping the run metres for the game with 192m gained. 

The Victorian junior proved quite the handful for the Canberra defence, also registering one try, one linebreak and five tackle breaks.  

There were nine different try scorers for Storm in Round 24, with the entire side getting in on the action as Storm’s attack continued to fire right across the park. 

Christian Welch managed to nab his first try of the season, while Eli Katoa and Reimis Smith marked their return to the starting side with first half four pointers. 

There was very little respite for the Canberra defence with Storm finding joy on both edges and through the middle third of the field to rack up 48 points in sunny conditions at AAMI Park.  


Nick Meaney was near untouchable for Storm on Sunday, registering 10 tackle breaks across the 80 minutes. 

Meaney’s tackle breaking best on was on full display for Harry Grant’s try in the 54th minute, the fullback breezing through two would be defenders before linking up with Grant on the inside.  

Meaney accounted for a fifth of Storm’s tackle breaks for the afternoon, with the side racking up 52 tackle breaks.


Josh King broke the 200 mark for decoy runs on the weekend, bringing his tally up to 204 decoy runs for the season, a comfortable 38 more than Addin Fonua-Blake who sits in second with 166. 

While King’s work won’t necessarily feature on the highlights reel each week, his tireless efforts through the middle of the field play a crucial role in ensuring Storm’s attack can click out wide. 


Storm’s return to AAMI Park was met with a warm reception on Sunday afternoon, with 17,369 fans coming out to watch the Round 24 clash. 

The Purple Army were in full voice, with the sea of Storm fans soaking up the sun and watching their side execute a dominant performance on their beloved AAMI Park.
