Storm by 20+

Canberra are well and truely f**ked. Brett White will go from waterboy to starting prop because there is no forwards left at the club

How are the Storm outsiders?

I'd back them to view this as a revenge game and with the Raiders poor form and injuries I'd say Storm 13+ as well.

Get ready to lube up your sphincter lads, theres gonna be some major league hurtin in the sheds after this one..... amazingly / somehow the raiders have won the past three against these cheating dicks, theres absolutely NO WAY that bellyache will allow it to be 4 in a row.... can you imagine the texers?!
Storm 32 def. Raiders 12

It’s almost comical that Ricky says he benched Papali’i and started Soliola and Guler to ease the load on Papa. Next minute they both suffer serious injuries and the forward pack is now just Papalii

Tough one to pick. Canberra have owned the Storm lately but have a feeling Melbourne will be too good here

Has it been confirmed this is being played at GIO? I can't see any tickets on sale for it, and the NRL site says it's being played at Campbelltown.

We haven't been playing well and now our pack is wrecked with long term injuries. Storm will win easy.

The Cameron Smith Chicken Wing tacklers will get their revenge in this one.

But it will be close as the game against the Roosters will have definitely zapped their energy levels.

Should be another great contest. Raiders seem to be bookies favourites but if Melbourne can bring the same intensity as they did on Thursday then they definitely have a solid shot at a win.

Fortunately we get a decent break from the Roosters game leading into this one as I'd imagine we were pretty f**ked after that.

I don't think it'll be the walkover people suggest though, Raiders have really lifted against us of late and they're our new bogey side.

I just can't see the Raiders current pack- with 4 out injured from last years GF team- getting over the Melbourne pack for 80 minutes. There might be some heroic efforts but Melbourne are deep in the bench.

Storm by 13+, Solomona rampaging, Brandon Smith starring & Papenhuyzen shredding the Raiders right.

The Raiders confirmed the venue last week. NRL app is notoriously slow to update - they updated all venues for R9-12 yesterday.

Yeah I picked up tickets today when they finally announced them 5 minutes before they went on sale.

f**king ridiculous seating selections though... I got mine right on 2PM when they became available and somehow I'm in the non-covered section of the grandstand. And I am in the priority one group.
