The Storm have been the benchmark team of the season this year and go into their Preliminary Final as the short priced favourites and rightfully so.
The Sharks started well but were found late in which the Panther went very close to pulling off a massive comeback on the weekend.
The Storm will go into this with fresh legs and they should simply outrun the Sharks in the second have and be comfortable winners.
