Feeder Report: Round 3

Melbourne Storm’s feeder club, the Brisbane Tigers, finally kickstarted their Hostplus Cup premiership defence, securing a 24-0 win over the Ipswitch Jets over the weekend. 

After suffering losses in the opening two rounds of the 2024 season, the reigning premieres switched into gear at Totally Workwear Stadium, bolstered by three Storm contracted players in their line-up. 

Marion Seve was the standout performer of the Melbourne contingent up north, laying down two tries for the Tigers.

The spoils stopped there for the Club associated teams, with the Sunshine Coast Falcons going down to 22-10 to the PNG Hunters at Santos National Football Stadium in Port Moseby.

Down in the Knock-On Effect NSW Cup, Nelson Asofa-Solomona begun his campaign to return to the NRL squad following a string of hamstring injuries throughout the pre-season, running out with the Northern Sydney Bears. 

Facing the Newcastle Knights in curtain raiser for the first-grade clash Sunday night, the home-ground advantage was a little too much to handle with the Bears experiencing a 26-point loss.

Former Storm Jersey Flegg captain, Keagan Russell-Smith came away as one of the visitor’s best, nabbing two assists, two conversions and a try from halfback.
