On the back of Wednesday night’s thrilling Origin showdown, Melbourne have confirmed that Billy Slater, Cooper Cronk, Cameron Smith and Will Chambers will all be sidelined for Saturday night’s top two battle with the Roosters.
The Roosters are also missing some star power with captain Boyd Cordner also out injured – but Mitchell Pearce, Dylan Napa and Blake Ferguson are expected to play.
It adds a fresh twist to a crucial encounter for both sides, with Melbourne hoping to extend their lead at the top of the ladder and the Roosters looking to close the gap to a single win.
Melbourne come into this encounter with just two losses for the season – against reigning premiers Cronulla and an epic 38-36 defeat to the Titans – with a last-start golden point win over the Cowboys at home last week without their Origin stars.
That win will give Melbourne confidence for this clash, but there’s no denying the Roosters are the stronger outfit of the teams, with Trent Robinson’s side crushing the Tigers by 22 points before last week’s bye.
The Storm have won the last three games between the sides, but this game in Adelaide is being played under unusual circumstances, putting past form out the window. Melbourne proved last week they can win without their Origin stars, but conquering the second-placed Roosters should prove a step too far.
