    Can't see Tigers losing at Leichardt to Melbourne. Melbourne have a poor record at the venue, they haven't got the forwards necessary to dominate the Tigers either. I expect the Tigers to finish the stronger as they have in the past few weeks.

    it will be a sell out weather permiting, cant remember the last time the storm beat us at lecihhardt, we seem to always beat them there no matter how bad we are going

    both our games at leichhardt this year we've played poorly and come back late to snatch a win. we cant do that against the storm cause they wont let us back in if they skip away

    hopefully we can put in 80 minutes and make a great game of it

    This could be the game that kick starts our season, sunny sunday arvo at LO, massive crowd and a win against a top 4 side.

    Has the makings of a great contest.

    Always too hard to predict these two teams when playing each other. Either is capable of trouncing the other if the application and attitude of the opposition isnt spot on

    Hoping the weather gods are nice. A sunny Sunday afternoon at Leichhardt Oval - nothing better.

    Can't wait!

    Hate playing the Tigers, especially at Leichardt. They have no respect for possesion and usually find ways through or around our defense that noone else can.
    Plus that crowd will get right into the refs.

    Our Origin boys could struggle like they did against Cronulla. Tigers by 10

    Tigers form has been rubbish for most of 2011, last two weeks they have got the bacon but I doubt they were the better team. If the Storm play any where near their top they will win and easy.

    If we turn up with the right attitude then I will be confident, but you will be able to tell after the first five minute.

    If sisa waqa and champion play...Storm wins by plenty. If not...they win by 1-12. Storm have awesome defense, and that is usually enough.

    Then Maurice Blair will start in centers. Look for Waqa to come onto the wing. Happy days! He'll tear Wests a new one...

    Storm struggle at Leichardt...this will be a close one.

    Bromwich is out for Storm as well and Troy Thompson comes into starting side.
