Brisbane Broncos vs Melbourne Storm Preview
The Broncos pulled off one of the upsets of the season last week with a controversial win over the Roosters, but this shapes as a much tougher test against a Storm side that has held their number for the better part of the last five seasons.
Melbourne is shooting for its 10th straight win over the Broncos on Thursday night at Suncorp, with the most recent meeting between these two sides resulting in a 40-6 bloodbath last month.
That kicked off the Storm’s current eight-game winning streak, and it’s very difficult to imagine that run coming to an end, even with Ryan Papenhuyzen sidelined for a few more weeks.
Fortunately, the Storm could potentially welcome Kenny Bromwich and Cameron Munster back into the squad this week – two huge inclusions for a team that already leads the league in points and tries.
The Broncos could be boosted by Katoni Staggs’ inclusion but considering the Storm haven’t lost a game at Suncorp in over three years, it’s hard to get on board with a Brisbane upset.
The last three games between these two sides have also gone Over the Total, so a high-scoring contest could be in order.
