Melbourne Storm vs Sydney Roosters Preview
The Storm will go into Friday’s blockbuster as heavy favourites against the battered and bruised Roosters.
Despite picking up a crucial win over the Sharks last week, the tri-colours were still dealt a loss on the front lines with hooker Freddy Lussick now set to miss up to eight weeks with a broken arm.
The Storm, on the other hand, have combined to score over 100 points in their last two games.
After throttling the Broncos two weeks ago, Craig Bellamy’s crew picked up right where it left off last week with a thorough 52-18 beatdown over the Bulldogs in Sydney.
To add further cause to Trent Robinson’s concern, the Storm could also welcome back Brenko Lee and Dale Finucane from injury this week.
The Storm won both meetings over the Roosters last year, but if you’re looking to add some value, it might be worth throwing in the Over.
Melbourne and Sydney both rank first and second respectively in tries scored this year.
