The Storm have continued Brisbane’s misery in Melbourne, roaring home to clinch a 34-32 thriller in their Thursday night NRL battle at AAMI Park.

Melbourne trailed by four points with six minutes left on the clock but a try from Tyran Wishart put his team ahead before Jahrome Hughes crossed for a 34-26 lead.

Brisbane’s towering Ben Te Kura, making his debut, then scored in the 77th minute to set up a grandstand finish but the home side was able to hang on.

A visibly upset Adam Reynolds had to be consoled in the Brisbane Broncos rooms after he limped off during their monster clash with the Melbourne Storm.

Reynolds knocked knees with Storm five-eighth Cam Munster in the final moments of the first half.

While he was quick to his feet he limped off the field and had was ruled out shortly after half time.

“It was innocuous. There was no real collision with Cameron Munster. But the fact he grabbed the back of his leg,” Andrew Voss said in commentary.

“We were told it was a medial issue last time when he missed games, but that didn’t look like he grabbed a media,” Greg Alexander added.

Reynolds was seen with his head in his hands in the rooms and had punched the turf as he was forced to leave the field.

“You can see the devastation on his face. This is such a devastating blow,” Ennis said.

“Terrible scenes for Adam Reynolds, visibly upset in the sheds. The Broncos are only announcing it’s a knee concern and he that he won’t return to this game” Pitt initially reported as the teams were running back onto the field.

While Broncos fans feared the worst the club later provided an update to suggest the captain had avoided major damage.

However, Reynolds was still devastated post-game.

“I felt it midway through the first half and tried to push through ... we’ll get back to Brisbane, get a scan and go from there.”
