Melbourne wins National Rugby League title, beats Cowboys

"The Cowboys need to also attack Melbourne's defence with some change of direction running in and around the ruck".

Melbourne have vowed to target Michael Morgan during Sunday's NRL grand final in an effort to arrest the North Queensland's playmaker's peerless form.

He's too quick, Josh Addo-Carr, as the Storm flyer bolts away for the first try of the grand final.

A vintage Storm strong-armed their way to a three-try lead at halftime and were challenged when Te Maire Martin sliced through soon after resumption. Cronk will leave the club at the end of the year and is expected to retire.

The Cowboys' Shaun Fensom signals to the crowed as he is carted off with a broken leg early in the grand final. Then livewire flyer Addo-Carr got the breakthrough the Victorians craved.

Felise Kaufusi of the Storm scores a try and is greeted by his jubilant team-mates. Melbourne sensed blood in the water.

She has also previously spoken about Billy's high profile and that while he has a host of followers, she sees him only as a "great husband and dad" - not a superstar. Then a third came just before halftime after Cowboy Antonio Winterstein fumbled a grubber. Both are fantastic options to back and are at decent odds to be the first try scorer.

The Storm, minor premiers who fell agonisingly short against Cronulla a year ago, beat the Cowboys 34-6 in the decider at Sydney's ANZ Stadium for their first title since 2012.

Now foreign-flagged vessels also will be able to move shipments from the US mainland to Puerto Rico and between ports there. Rhode Island and MA residents have amassed enough donations meant for Puerto Rico to fill almost ten cargo ship containers.

The Cowboys can beat the Storm but they have to go about it the way we did and that includes containing the Storm's main man - Dally M Medallist Cameron Smith.

So far the Cowboys have already delivered the three biggest surprises of the season.

However, eventually, Martin got through some exhausted defence to give the Cowboys a chance. So fans were left scratching their heads when the Cowboys won 24-16, and were even more baffled by their huge upset in the preliminary final against the Roosters. Coach Paul Green's men are full of confidence and have nothing to lose - a combination that could very well prove the flawless recipe for premiership success.

"It's really hard to give up moments like this".

As Eternity reported previous year, rugby players from opposing teams have been praying together, before and after games.

It capped off a triumphant domestic campaign for Slater, who had his last two seasons wiped out by shoulder injuries and surgeries. The 34-year-old fullback, who has done it all in rugby league for club and country, chocked back tears as the final hooter sounded.

For the fourth week in a row they won't be given much of a chance of winning, and for the fourth week in a row will believe they can anyway.
