WARWICK-born winger Justin O'Neill leapt in the air to take a kick and score the third Melbourne Storm try as the side from Victoria beat the Bulldogs 14-4 in the NRL grand final last night at Sydney's ANZ Stadium.

He scored from a kick by Storm halfback Cooper Cronk.

O'Neill was only a young child when his family moved to Hughenden but lists Warwick as his place of birth in his NRL profile.

He will be one of the players with a Warwick connection to be honoured at the Warwick Cowboys function next month when the Wall of Legends at the clubhouse will be unveiled.

O'Neill is in a list of players from Warwick to have made it to the NRL.

Last night, the Melbourne Storm wiped away a bit of the disappointment for being stripped of the 2007 and 2009 premierships.

The game was played in front of a record crowd of 82,976.

Cronk was brilliant for the Storm and won the Churchill Medal for player of the final.

One of the players to receive a premiership ring was former Newtown (Toowoomba) forward Jaiman Lowe who played his last game in the NRL last night in the victorious Melbourne side.

 

SCORES: Melbourne 14 (Billy Slater, Ryan Hoffman, Justin O'Neill tries, Cameron Smith 1 goal) d Bulldogs 4 (Sam Perrett try).
