Always a good game as they are the best in the business at cynical cheating. Looking forward to the 15 second play the balls every tackle.

Likely to be a low scoring game imo so I wouldn't be betting on try scorers.

Always a close game so it should be worth watching.

Depends if Teddy comes back and if Pap gets a couple of weeks.

Teddy is named at full back.

Manu back to centres.

Easts are fully fit.

Storm have beaten Easts 8 out of the last 9 times including the finals last year.

Roosters have an appalling record against top 4 teams since their coach Cooper Cronk left.

Not convinced about the fat assistant coach Trent Robinson.

Storm to win again.

I used a bit of reverse betting psychology and picked tryscorers I wouldn't normally for this one.
Now watch Warbrick, Papenhuyzen and Manu probably get multiple tries.

Don't tell me you went with JWH and NAS?

I told you Crighton two weeks ago and that was a dud but I'm doubling down, bloke is due.
