It seems that the celebrations went on long into the night and with the wonders of modern-day technology, fans were able to look in on just how much the Storm stars were revelling in their Grand Final triumph.
It was of no surprise to anyone that Brandon Smith was true to his word and had, it would appear, consumed an unholy amount of alcohol at the time of this video being recorded.
Safe to say Brandon Smith enjoyed the Melbourne Storm’s premiership celebrations last night! 😂
