NRL 2020 LIVE updates: Roosters lead Storm in frantic thriller

Jake Friend's brain explosion to cost the premiers the match was an unfortunate end to what will be remembered as one of the great games of the modern era.

This blogger has never seen a match like it.

Can we just have these two teams face each other for the last 12 weeks of the regular season?

Sport - let alone rugby league - does not get any better than that.

When Josh Morris scored with 10 minutes to play to take a 22-12 lead, this clash looked all over.

But two Melbourne tries in three minutes put Melbourne in front before the manic final 90 seconds in which Kyle Flanagan slotted a match-levelling penalty, Luke Keary put the premiers in front with a field goal and Ryan Papenhuyzen returned serve with the final play of regulation to send us to golden point.
