7:00 am on 12 March 2012

Rugby league fullback Billy Slater may have cost his Melbourne team a try but he won the match with two of his own in their 24-10 win over South Sydney at AAMI Park last night.

Slater scored both tries in the second half, the second coming in the final minute to cap a memorable evening for the Test fullback.

The five-tries-to-one win made it back to back victories for Melbourne to start the NRL season.

The Storm faltered during the first half to allow the Rabbitohs to level 10-10 before 14 unanswered points sealed the result.
