With close to our full team on the park I think we could it match it with most teams besides the top 4. Both the top 2 would still smash us, which is what is going to happen here.


With the way things are developing down south in the past 24 hours, certainly potential for this match to end up moved or played behind closed doors.


First Grade
Apart from when they had their Origin players out against the Titans (who themselves had several outs) in round 13, the Storm have not been troubled since round 3. The Knights would have to turn up ready to play and keep it up for the full 80 but this could be the Storm's toughest game in ages.
