Broncos outclassed by Storm

RUGBY LEAGUE: A hat-trick to flying winger Suliasi Vunivalu has helped the Melbourne Storm move to the top of the NRL ladder after a 48-6 hammering of the Brisbane Broncos.

The Storm set up the win with a five-try blitz midway through the first half, taking a 30-6 lead into half-time.

Cheyse Blair also scored a double for the Storm, which is now level on the top of the table with the Cronulla Sharks, who have the chance to move ahead again tonight when they play the Eels.

The Broncos – and the Maroons – will be sweating on the fitness of winger Corey Oates, who was forced off in the first half with concussion, while Josh McGuire was put on report.

The Broncos have now lost five of their past six games.
