Melbourne Storm will be without star centre Will Chambers for their showdown with Brisbane Broncos at AAMI Park on Sunday.

Chambers was cited for dangerous contact during Queensland’s State of Origin loss to New South Wales on Wednesday night and the Storm opted to plead no contest and avoid having a suspension hanging over their centre’s head.

Chambers could have taken an early plea and accepted 90 carry-over points (100 is a one-game ban) but he has an existing bad record which would have further exacerbated any future charges this season.

While Munster suffered a swollen eye after clashing heads with Blues enforcer David Klemmer early in Origin, it doesn't appear he had any further damage beyond the bruising and swelling. Addo-Carr reportedly had a corked thigh which he played through.

Munster told Fairfax Media post-game he had vision problems due to the swelling but was hopeful he could still play.

“Chambers got suspended and Addo-Carr pulled up with a cork so someone has to play and hopefully I’ll be right on Sunday,” Munster said on Thursday as the Maroons left their hotel.

Storm football director Frank Ponissi told Fairfax Media on Thursday Addo-Carr had come up well and the Origin players would face final calls on their fitness at training on Saturday.

The Broncos will have their own concerns after Josh McGuire and Andrew McCullough both had heavy workloads during Origin, but both said they intended to play.

Kaufusi said he loved his Origin debut but not the performance, with Maroons players determined to earn a chance to rectify the result in game two on June 24.

“Running out on the MCG I had a good look around and took it all in – it was awesome,” Kaufusi said.

“There is some new faces in the team and we will only get better the more we work with each other.

“I’m itching to play again as I don’t like losing, no one does. I’ll see how I recover and hopefully will be alright come Sunday.”

The Storm play the Broncos at AAMI Park on Sunday at 4pm.
