Storm flyer Josh Addo-Carr produced a scintillating solo run to the tryline from 60 metres out to stun the Eels.
The sixth minute try started from inside Melbourne’s half, with Justin Olam putting Addo-Carr in space outside Blake Ferguson, befor the NSW winger blew the Eels apart.
“Addo-Carr is away, the Foxx is past Gutherson he turns them inside out,” Andrew Voss said in commentary.

“He gets caught but he still scores. How do you catch a fox? How do you catch the Foxx full stop. He’s too good.
“Josh Addo-Carr what a path to the tryline.”
Fox League experts Braith Anasta and Greg Alexander marvelled at the Storm speedster’s raw pace, which makes even the best wingers in the game look silly.
“Addo-Carr had so much work to do,” Anasta said.
“He is fast. He had two, three, four defenders in his path. He had to beat them all and he did it easily.”

“That is an incredible try,” Alexander said.
“They couldn’t match him for pace. Addo-Carr goes on the inside of Gutherson, which flips him around down the short side.
“He throws the dummy that beats Blake Ferguson and gets out of the tackle of Waqa Blake and throws himself into the in-goal area.
“I was asked who has the best back five and I said the Melbourne Storm mainly because of the speed of this man.
“There isn’t another winger in the competition with the genuine speed of Josh Addo-Carr.”
The Storm scored three more first half tries to lead the Eels 18-0 after 23 minutes.
