New South Wales winger Josh Addo-Carr scored two tries to help Melbourne Storm defeat Newcastle Knights 28-10.
Ryley Jacks opened the scoring for the Storm before Kalyn Ponga continued his excellent season with a try to level the scores.
Addo-Carr’s first try and Cameron Smith’s conversion and penalty gave the Storm a 14-6 lead at half-time.
Ken Sio’s try brought the Knights back into the game but from then, it was all Melbourne.
Addo-Carr added his second before their other winger in Suliasi Vunivalu sealed the win.
