I think a lot of people will believe manly can win but Melbourne and quite easily for me.

They will nullify turbo.

Since Turbo returned from injury in round 6 Manly have played two games against the top 5 sides and lost them both. The Storm will stop them stone cold.

A lot of talk about turbo.

I think it's Melbourne that will hit the turbo button here. Storm by 14.

Think this our biggest challenge in the post Cameron Smith era. I'm relatively confident of a win, but if it's tight with 10-20 minutes to go we don't really have someone who can slow the game down and control the tempo. Our playmakers play at a million miles per hour which has its plus and minuses. As always though, limit Turbo's involvement and you likely win the game.

Storm by 8.
 

big hit!

Munster could be out for this due to knee surgery in the past week. If that's the case, he'll be replaced by Hynes.

Ado-Carr still battling a hammy. 2 weeks isn't much recovery time. He'll miss another week I reckon. Their back up wingers are fairly useless so they need him in. Back 3 is so important in the modern game.

If Manly can win this then they will most likely make the GF. They would probably face the Bunnies in the Prelim which I would tip them to win. If they lose this game then they will have to go through Penrith (provided they also win week 1).

I can't see any of the top 4 teams losing in week 2.

Here's the hot tip: Manly will knock off Melbourne. Red hot form. The Storm have been less than spectacular recent weeks, injury concerns. Turbo in career best form. I can see Manly going all the way.

It took a bunch of cheats in 2009 to stop the Hayne train.

Anything can happen with Tommy T in command.
