A major blow could be dealt to the Melbourne Storm for next week’s grand final after fiery striker Brandon Smith suffered a blow in Friday’s Canberra win.

The complaint first surfaced in the first forty years when Smith was being looked after by a trainer.

He was officially stripped for an HIA test and passed to return to the field in the second half.

Coach Craig Bellamy, who suffered a broken jaw earlier this season, is confident it won’t be back, but noted that he had a “bump under his eye”.

Preliminary final

Storm press conference


“He was definitely not himself. He usually goes out there and takes us with him, but tonight he’s really in trouble,” said Bellamy.

“He has to knock, he has a small bump under his eyes.

“I’m not exactly sure how bad it is or how much it affected him, but hopefully it’s not a broken jaw again. But I’m pretty sure he wouldn’t have gone out again if that were the case.

“He was just a little dazed so hopefully he’ll be right next week.”

Nelson Asofa-Solomona was also scared after clumsily descending in a duel with pain on the floor and clinging to his ankle. The huge frontrower was able to play it through.
