    If Slater returns, Storm to have a Running Riot Halo style. If he doesn't, I could see an Eels upset but only narrowly. Depends on how fired up they are infront of their home crowd and how downcast the Storm Journeymen are from their 3 straight losses.

    No Slater IMO will mean an Eels upset.

    We wouldn't even win this game if the mighty Jarryd Hayne was playing

    Storm have not lost 4 games in a row with Craig Bellamy as our coach. Don't expect it this week. With Kelly, Hayne and MoiMoi still recovering from his concussion (though is expected to play). However we have Slater, Duffie, Chambers and Nielsen injuried.

    Going to be a very nervous game for Melbourne.

    Storm, just.

    I should feel confident.

    However, I just don't.

    Storm might just fall across the line on this one. Will all depend on whether Cooper Cronk finally wakes up from his Game III dream-like state and plays some decent footy.

    He's been known to overplay his hand at crucial parts of seasons past (last year's final versus the warriors is a classic example). If he settles down, and finds his lost kicking boots it could be a long night for the Eels.

    Loss of Slater, Chambers continues to hurt us bigtime and now Vave and our only real try-scoring option of late - Matt Duffie are both lost for an extended time.

    Sika Manu is playing like he's already at Penrith. Kevin Proctor is playing like he wants to play for Penrith.

    I hope they turn the corner on this one.

    Kearney is still coaching this game. It wouldn't matter if Kearney wasn't coaching for this game, Storm need to stop their little slump. The sacking coach theory won't apply. Storm 13+

    You'd hope for a lift, but I don't think it's there. The Storm will go out there wanting to end their losing streak and will hammer us, Storm by 20.

    Eels will be wearing their members jersey (similar to Sharks, with names all over it).
