NRL returns to Adelaide on Friday night as competition heavyweights the Roosters and Storm clash in a crucial Round 16 showdown.
Both teams experienced slow and disjointed starts to the 2018 season, but they are each on an upward climb at the moment, with the Roosters winning their last four matches and Melbourne on a three-match winning streak coming into this encounter.
With a top four spot potentially up for grabs (Roosters are sixth and Storm are fifth), both sides will be determined to claim the two points on Friday night.
The Roosters are the best defensive side in the competition and rank sixth in attack, while Melbourne have the second best attack and are fourth in defence. Looking at those numbers, we could be in for a low-scoring contest.
Melbourne have the added advantage of a fresh Cameron Smith during the Origin period this time and are expected to name all of their Origin stars – could that prove the deciding factor in the end?
Boyd Cordner meanwhile is out for the Roosters, while Jared Waerea-Hargreaves might not make the squad after New Zealand’s delayed flight home from Denver last weekend.
Melbourne have won four of the last five games between the teams, but the Roosters won in Adelaide last year. It’s a tough game to call between two in-form sides, but the Storm have had the wood over the Roosters in their bulk of recent meetings, and with a bit more strike-power present this time, I think they can edge this one.
