    Tigers could be on a 6-match losing run, pending tonight's game. Benji needs help and if Farah is selected for SOO, he will have...John Morris. Tigers were kept to zip by the Warriors without Farah despite us having to make 434 tackles. They are backing up from Monday, short week, distorted preparations.

    Sure Melbourne will lose Origin players, but it can still field a half-decent squad; they are also at home, which means a lot.

    Storm by 10.

    Melbourne will field a depleted squad and will go down, but by only just. Tigers by 4.

    Melbourne beat the Warriors 4-2 in Auckland in 2007 with a second-string team (admittedly Folau was playing).

    At home, I'd give them every chance, especially against a Tigers outfit who forgot how to win.

    For some reason, I'm thinking the Tigers in an upset...not sure why though.
    Melbourne's pack is still quite strong.

    Tigers 22
    Melbourne 18

    Wouldn't really be an upset if that happened..Storm depeleted and Tigers only without Farrah.

    Hoping Storm scrape through:D

    + Ellis and more than likely, Heighington.

    And of course, Farah.

    Neither side can use injuries or players missing as an excuse for losing this one.

    If Galloway and Lawrence are late inclusions, we should win this comfortably, otherwise it'll be very close.

    Melbourne are there to be beaten and the Tigers will be in with a chance. Hopefully Benji breaks Melbourne hearts.

    LOL @ Storm fans using missing players as an excuse.

    they still have 10 origin or test players in their line up compared to our 3

    they are missing 4 starting players, we are missing 6 (7 if heighington is ruled out, as expected)

    its at a place we have NEVER won at in 10 in years

    no excuses for either side, the better one will win

    I wont accept it as an excuse. If a team containing Lima, Blair, Manu, Cronk, Hoffman, Finch, Quinn, White cant beat a middle-of-the-road team, with all due respect, they need to take a good look in the mirror.
