NEL­SON ASOFA SOLOMONA KENNY BROMWICH JOR­DAN MCLEAN SLADE GRIF­FIN NATE MYLES JAHROME HUGHES BRODIE CROFT ROB­BIE ROCHOW The big three at Mel­bourne get enough ku­dos, so Suliasi Vunivalu gets the gong here af­ter cross­ing for his 38th try in two NRL sea­sons against Manly last week, draw­ing him level with the all­time record. The 21- year- old will have his sights set on reach­ing the sum­mit on his own this week. He is the com­plete pack­age: strong, quick and al­ready has a great foot­ball brain. “He’s a good player now and he’s go­ing to be a pretty spe­cial player, I think,” Storm coach Craig Bel­lamy said af­ter Sun­day’s 40- 6 win over Manly. He’s al­ready pretty footy smart and is a hell of an ath­lete, a great kid off the field. You’d like to think he’s go­ing to have a real good ca­reer ahead of him, and hope­fully that will be with us.”
