South Sydney Rabbitohs vs Melbourne Storm Preview
One winning streak is coming to an end here as the Storm and Souths get the weekend underway with an absolute blockbuster.
Souths lost in Round 1 to the Storm but have been largely faultless since then, winning their next seven and covering the line in six of those.
As for the Storm, they stuttered a bit following that season opener, going down to Parramatta and Penrith but have since found their footing, winning five in a row and scoring at least 40 points in four of those games.
Chances are neither team will look to take a backwards step and history is pointing towards a pretty close game here.
The Storm might have won their last five against the Bunnies, which is enough to scare me off an outright upset but a 7.5 point line in favour of the visitors seems far too high.
