Melbourne Storm have confirmed star winger Suliasi Vunivalu suffered a broken jaw in the 18-point win over the Roosters on Friday.

The club say scans revealed a need for surgery, with recovery time expected to be between four to six weeks, meaning Vunivalu will return in time for Melbourne's finals tilt.

The Fijian international was one of five casualties to come from the contest at the SCG in what further validated concerns over the NRL's severe injury toll this season.

Roosters star Luke Keary was rushed to hospital with a broken rib, his teammates Mitchell Aubusson (wrist) and Lachlan Lam (ankle) also failing to finish the game, while Vunivalu's Storm teammate Jahrome Hughes had a groin complaint.

Vunivalu's absence compounds the injury issues Melbourne currently faces with both Cameron Munster and Cameron Smith sidelined with shoulder injuries, with Bellamy revealing Hughes is also expected to miss some time.

"I think he’s going to be missing some (games) which is a shame because he’s really starting to find some rhythm now," Bellamy of his injured stars said after the 24-6 win.

“I think having those other two (Cameron Smith and Munster) out he’s (Hughes) sort of gone to another level.

Melbourne Storm's Brandon Smith, Ryan Papenhuyzen and Jahrome Hughes trying to keep an NRL dynasty alive

  Melbourne Storm's Brandon Smith, Ryan Papenhuyzen and Jahrome Hughes trying to keep an NRL dynasty alive Jahrome Hughes, Ryan Papenhuyzen and Brandon Smith have been tasked with filling the shoes of the Big Three, and they are seizing their opportunity in an injury-riddled 2020 NRL season.After a week of discussions about which pubs and barber shops coaches and players did or did not go to, and whether that did or did not constitute a bursting of the Brisbane Broncos' biosecurity bubble, it was refreshing to see the Melbourne Storm and Sydney Roosters, two genuine premiership contenders, lining up against each other on Thursday night.

MELBOURNE young guns Cameron Munster and Suliasi Vunivalu are each facing a month on the sideline after picking up injuries on Thursday night. Munster was on the wrong end of an ugly head clash with Broncos winger Corey Oates in the 61st minute of the match.

“I thought him and probably (Ryan) Papenhuyzen were our two best players tonight, I thought he (Hughes) did a great job.”

The premiership-winning Storm boss brought to light the adverse effect the speed of the game was having on the rising injury toll across the competition.

"It’s just my opinion but I think the fatigue in the game – we decided we wanted some fatigue in the game - but I’m not quite sure whether there’s too much fatigue at the moment with the amount of teams that have got a lot of injuries, and I mean a lot of injuries," Bellamy added.

“And you just have a look at the Roosters list and we’ve got two of our most influential players (Cameron Smith and Cameron Munster) out.

“And it’s not just about fatigue and soft-tissue injuries, it’s about when people get fatigued, they start putting their bodies in the wrong places to make contact or make tackles, or to absorb the contact, and then that’s where you get injured from there.

“So I think it’s something we probably need to have a little look at because it was like a MASH unit out there tonight, there were blokes getting hurt left, right and centre.

“… I can’t remember an injury toll like that but like I say I’m not quite sure what the answer is.”

Melbourne's rising injury worries came as the club prepares to face fellow premiership heavyweights Parramatta next week, with Bellamy also expecting Smith to miss that game despite initially thoughts he'd make a quick return.

While their win over the premiers on Thursday temporarily planted them at the top of the NRL, one point clear of Penrith who play the Warriors on Friday.
