Curtis Scott is vowing to make amends for the "worst game of his career" if he gets the chance in Melbourne's Anzac Day clash with the Warriors.

The 21-year-old was downcast after the Storm were beaten 21-20 by the Sydney Roosters in golden point in their NRL grand final rematch at AAMI Park.

Scott nabbed a try to help tie scores at 20-20, but also blew one in the first half when he failed to ground a Brodie Croft kick into the in-goal.

He was especially disappointed by his performance lining up against star Roosters and NSW centre Latrell Mitchell, who kicked the winning field goal to round out a dominant performance.

"Latrell is such a quality player," Scott said.

"I'm just disappointed I didn't do a better job on him.

"He had a field day out there and that's a credit to him but I'm looking forward facing him next time if I get the chance."

Scott has been troubled in recent weeks by a shoulder injury and then illness, but wasn't looking for excuses.

Both he and winger Suliasi Vunivalu - a new combination this season - are under pressure, with the Roosters scoring two tries down their side.

Scott fears his head is on the chopping block ahead of their annual AAMI Park meeting with the Warriors on Thursday night.

"To be honest I have my fingers crossed I get picked next week," Scott said.

"I didn't play to my standards, I'm disappointed in myself and it's a learning curve for me but if I get the chance next week I'm going to go out there and leave it all on the field. We just have to move on and be better."

The Storm have one injury concern, with reserve forward Brandon Smith unable to take to the field in the second half due to a shoulder issue.
