Melbourne skipper Cameron Smith was asked in the lead-up to their Anzac Day match if a win over NRL premiership contenders the Warriors meant the Storm were back.
Previous score: Melbourne Storm 50 – New Zealand Warriors 10
After an indifferent start to the season getting used to life without Cooper Cronk, the Storm have returned to something close to their best over the past 2 rounds with comfortable wins over the Knights and Broncos.
Ryley Jacks has slotted in well at half back whilst the key playmakers in Cameron Smith, Cameron Munster and Billy Slater are all in good form.
However, the Storm will be down on troops, with Jesse Bromwich out with a knee injury and Suliasi Vunivalu forced out with muscle soreness, replaced by Young Tonumaipea. Both are significant losses.
The Warriors have their own injury problems, with Tohu Harris missing the match against his former club due to concussion and Shaun Johnson still not returning from a groin injury.
Johnson’s absence didn’t impact the Warriors last round, with a 20-12 win over the previously. unbeaten Dragons providing further proof that the Warriors are the real deal this season.
Johnson’s replacement, Mason Lino, would now be on the radar of a number of NRL clubs. After his performance last weekend.
Blake Green is arguably the buy of the NRL season to date. Providing much needed structure to the Warriors team.
Recent history has seen the Storm win the past four matches, including the last two ANZAC Day clashes.
PredictionThis is truly a toss of the coin with the significance of the occasion not lost on either team. The Warriors will be keen to claim another big scalp. But I think this Melbourne Storm at home will do just enough.
Both the Warriors and Cowboys are desperate to win to rise in the standings.
The Cowboys lost to the Melbourne Storm, leaving their finals hopes in the balance.
The Warriors also come into Saturday night’s match on the back of defeats to the Rabbitohs and the Bunnies.
