Vunivalu's 22 tries this year is the second most scored in a season by a Storm player after the 23 he got last year and he has time to beat that mark yet.

Additionally, his hat-trick was the fourth time he's scored 3 or more in a game which leaves him behind only Geyer (3 hat-tricks, 2 fours), Inglis (5 hat-tricks) and Slater (6 hat-tricks and 1 four) for the most instances of 3 or more tries for the club.

Nelson Asofa-Solomona needs 1 for 50
Christian Welsh needs 15 for 50
Cam Smith needs 1 more games for the outright all time appearances record

Cam Smith needs 3 points for 2000 (would be he first forward to do so in NRL history)
Cam Smith needs 7 goals for 1000
Cooper Cronk needs 8 tries for 100
Will Chambers needs 1 try to pass Marcus Bai into 5th all time for the Storm is now equal
Suliasi Vunivalu needs 1 try for 25 and 4 points for 100

Kenny Bromwich needs 1 win for 50
Tim Glasby needs 1 win for 50

Billy Slater needs 2 tries to surpass Steve Menzies as the second highest try scorer of all time
Josh Addo-Carr got his 25th try and 100th point tonight

Vunivalu now owns the record for scoring the most tries in a player's first two seasons of first grade outright with 46 surpassing players such as immortal Reg Gasnier

Cam Smith became the first player to captain 250 games yesterday.

Vunivalu has scored multiple tries in 15 games now - 5th most for the Storm


Cam Smith notched his 250th win tonight.

Cam Smith had his highest individual scoring game tonight with 22 points.[/quote]

Assuming, Addo-Carr doesn't somehow overtake Vunivalu, this will be the 4th straight year that a Fijian has been our leading tryscorer (one for Bula there).

Rochow didn't score either, not sure if he did with Souths earlier in the year but would that count if he had?

If you were a prop you'd be asking for a gentleman's agreement on a minimum number of games before qualifying for the end of year nudie-run. Surely!
