I am picking us by about 8. I think the Raiders are going to go very well this season but the Storm have a lot more to prove over the first 5 weeks of the season. it is always imperative we come hard out of the blocks and we normally do.

Melbourne can't afford to be complacent in this one. The boys will be fired up big time.

Raiders by 12.

feeling confident about the Raiders this year, hoping we can start the season off strong beating the storm.

round 1 is an absolute lottery

i think the raiders are going to be a much better team this year, and we'll give melbourne and the big 3 a run. I still favour the storm though.

Hoping we can beat Scum, but doubt it. Melbourne just have the class in the positions that matter most. We're still a young side, and perennial slow starters to the season. Like posters above, reckon we could surprise this season, but it certainly won't be conveyed first game:

Melbourne 28-10 Canberra

What a shit match up to start the season with, Melbourne may as well just play another trial. Oh well at least the boys will be able to work on their post try celebrations.

Storm by 16 with most of their points scored in the last 20 minutes. It will take a few rounds before Campese hits his straps again and I predict Bellamy will tell his players to direct a lot of traffic at Croker who is a defensive liability. Canberra will put up a good fight, but Melbourne just have too much class in the key positions.
