Melbourne Storm star Cameron Munster admits his side were "rattled" by the Parramatta Eels during their qualifying final and he won't be shocked if the Eels make the grand final.
The 22‑year‑old Storm five‑eighth says the Eels had really good line speed in the game and they defended on the Storm’s red zone.
The Storm trailed 10‑4 at half‑time but regrouped before taking back the lead and holding steady to win 18‑16 and earn the right to host a third consecutive preliminary final at AAMI Park next Friday.
The Storm will have this week off as Brisbane Broncos and Penrith Panthers play an elimination semi‑final in Brisbane on Friday for the right to play Melbourne.
The Eels play North Queensland Cowboys in Sydney on Saturday night and the winner plays Sydney Roosters in the other preliminary final.
The Broncos will take on the Panthers at 9.55pm Friday while the Eels will take on the Cowboys at 9.40pm Saturday.
