Storm edge Eels in thrilling qualifying final

Melbourne are a game away from successive NRL grand finals after a thrilling 18-16 victory over a fearless Parramatta outfit at AAMI Park.

Smith be the first player to crack 400 games in the NRL and he could do it all for a single club.

The Storm opened the second half with renewed intent and scored two sublime tries.

Michael Ennis says the Storm's first try against the Eels in Melbourne on Saturday should not have been awarded.

Cam Smith kicked a penalty in the 62nd minute for an 18-10 lead but the Eels hit back four minutes later when Semi Radradra found space on the left flank after an arcing Brad Takairangi run set up an intense finish.

Before Munster returned Will Smith jigged his way to the line off a well-timed Mitch Moses pass and the visitors took a six point lead to the break following Moses' conversion. Kenny Bromwich scored off the end of a string of passes in a very entertaining (if not messy) team try at the 46th minute before Billy Slater grabbed hold of an Addo-Carr chip kick to put his side in front.

During his 10-minute stint in the sin bin, Parramatta played the numbers to send Kirisome Auva'a over in the corner, then came Mitchell Moses' masterpiece, a deceptive inside ball for Will Smith to cross in the 31st minute for a 10-4 lead. Crowd: 22,626. Half-time: Eels 10-8.

The Sea Eagles take on Penrith after minor premiers Melbourne narrowly escaped with an 18-16 win over the Eels.

Eels star Semi Radradra had barely touched the ball but he jumped into action 15 minutes from full-time when the Eels matched the Storm's early fifth-tackle effort, keeping the ball alive and then having Manu Manu break the line and find Radradra for a try.

The Eels had opportunities late but the Storm held on to advance to the third week of the finals.

Melbourne have a preliminary final booked now against one of three clubs - Brisbane, Manly or Penrith - in a fortnight's time at AAMI Park; Parramatta head back to Sydney and will play the victor of tomorrow's Sharks-Cowboys clash next weekend.
