Melbourne Storm vs St George Illawarra Dragons Preview
A second top eight battle is on the cards on Sunday between the red-hot Storm and the Dragons from Melbourne.
Craig Bellamy’s side again looks destined for a Grand Final rematch against the Panthers after scoring a half century last week against the Rabbitohs in a shutout, but the legendary head coach does need to ensure his side doesn’t overlook a Dragons outfit that recorded a big win of its own over the Bulldogs.
The Saints managed a win over the Storm when these two sides met last September, but that was against a half-strength Melbourne outfit resting up for the finals.
Unfortunately for coach Anthony Griffin, his men will now take on a full-strength Melbourne outfit that is also set to feature star fullback Ryan Papenhuyzen in his return from injury.
Of course, Papz might be the least of the Dragons’ concerns after Josh Addo-Carr scored six tries last week in the demolition job over Souths.
Either way, it’s been over three years since the Storm last lost a game at Suncorp, so this looks to be one of the safest bets of the round.
