The second-placed Melbourne Storm are looking for their seventh win on the trot when they travel across the ditch to face the New Zealand Warriors at Mt Smart Stadium. Join The Roar for live scores and a blog of the match from 2pm (AEST).
The last time these two met was on Anzac Day, when the Storm thumped the Warriors 50-10 at AAMI Park.
A reminder of that from coach Stephen Kearney should fire his men up for a much better defensive performance today at home.
The Warriors are coming off a good win last week against the Broncos at Suncorp Stadium and, with seven rounds to go, two points today will keep them in the hunt for the top four.
Kearney has made one change to his starting line-up, with centre Peta Hiku dropped to the bench, Gerard Beale moving from the wing to the centres, and Ken Maumalo reclaiming the number 5 jersey.
The Storm have Origin stars Billy Slater, Cameron Munster, Felise Kaufusi, Will Chambers and Josh Addo-Carr all returning, after being rested by coach Craig Bellamy for his side’s 14-13 win over Manly last weekend.
If the Warriors play to their potential, this should be a cracker, but the away side should be too clinical.
Storm by 7.
