I think Storm's defense should hold up better than the other teams though... Second best points against this year.... Also Radley and Verrils out.... Though Friend always looks good enough to start anyway to me.... Is Tedesvo still gone? I reckon that Seibo trample would have killed most normal people

I'm going for the value bet is with Storm nicking a low scoring win

Melbourne without Munster , that is going to make it very difficult , however you`re right it will be great to see the Roosters get a bit of their own medicine in defence . Roosters to win but I`ll be giong for the Storm.

Melbourne for me, the loss of Victor Radley will be felt  Roosters cannot win every game

Hard to call. Melbourne are adapting to the new rules and are gritty defenders with plenty of attacking talent outside. But the various injuries throw a spanner in the works as far as predictions go.

I've gone for the Roosters, but not with overwhelming confidence.

i think the right winger for the Roosters (Morris) has already seen more ball in the opening 20 than Ryan Hall saw in two games.

Quite a fractious and poor quality game so far. Reminds me of a SL game actually with the lack of composure and errors trying to force the play. Surprising from these 2 teams. The British duo of the Morris twins the difference so far

Just had to check if I am watching the same game! There's not a Superleague team that could cope with the pace, skill and tackling on show.

Yay! First leg of my acca won. Only seven to go ?

Unbelievable finish. Roosters tossed it away, really.

Accumulater on the aussie rugby, you must be mad! I'm lucky to get one game correct

If Ryan Hall had made the errors that Tupou did that helped the Storm to get over the line in this one he would have been ripped to pieces on here.

What a soft ending! Idiotic from Auberson.

It was c o-captain Jake "The Peg" Friend who made the idiotic mistake, not Roy Aubusson!

Two dropped kick receives by normally reliable Daniel Tupou, a dropped ball by concussed co-captain Boyd Cordner, and a dumb second push of the already tackled Dale Finucane in front of the posts  by Jake "The Peg" Friend, allowed Melbourne to win the game
