Melbourne Storm vs Sydney Roosters Preview
The Roosters had their hands full last week against the Dragons and they will need to ensure they turn up in the first half this week against the Storm.
Melbourne will be hoping to ride the momentum they gained last week with a huge 50-6 win over the Warriors, although they will play without Cameron Munster, who looks likely to miss at least a few weeks with a knee injury.
The Roosters are also looking a little worse for wear with Victor Radley and Sam Verrills set to miss the season after tearing their ACL’s. Trent Robinson can rest a little easier though knowing James Tedesco is fit to return following a concussion.
These two clubs met three times last year with all three games being decided by eight points or less. The Roosters have won three of the last five meetings, but it is worth noting four of those games have seen less than 30-points.
This contest has a real finals feel to it, so it wouldn’t be surprising if we saw a low-scorer – especially with a few key outs.
