    Was hoping the Tigers would win to be honest - we would be able to counter their attack with our grind quite well. The Warriors are different - they don't rely on attack or defence per se, they just do everything with a monstrous amount of power and energy. I imagine that all this power and energy will hurt us, as our grinding style means that we may tire down at the end of game.

    So unlike most games where I'd pick Melbourne to pull away at the end, I think we need to rely on a good start more than ever...and hopefully we're leading at halftime.

    So for the record: Storm by 6.

    Nah pretty sure they've been to at least 5 and won all of those. Doesn't matter if the teams were "legal" or not, Melbourne don't lose prelims :cool:
