NRL PRELIMINARY FINAL 2

Result: Melbourne Storm 14 bt Canberra Raiders 12 at AAMI Park

Key moment: Canberra full-back Jack Wighton's professional foul opened the door for the Storm, and Cheyse Blair made the Raiders pay with a 60th-minute try that would prove the difference.

Key quote: "It's a hell of a feeling. It's great to celebrate 300; we've got some hard work this week and 301 will be a bit of a celebration too, hopefully," milestone man and try-scorer Cooper Cronk.

Judiciary: Nil.

Injuries: Canberra's Junior Paulo and Joe Tapine needed time off the field but returned.

What's next: Melbourne march on to a grand final against Cronulla on Sunday week, while the Raiders can look back on their barnstorming second half of the season with pride.
