Storm vs Broncos Preview & Prediction

It’s a shame this top four blockbuster has been dampened by some key injuries to Broncos stars as Brisbane put their seven-match winning streak on the line against traditional heavyweights Melbourne.

After notching up three wins in 2020 and seven wins in 2021, the Broncos have already registered nine victories in 2022 to come into this showdown nestled nicely inside the top four.

However, the Broncos were dealt a cruel blow in last week’s 24-18 victory over the Raiders, with Herbie Farnworth suffering a long-term bicep injury and Adam Reynolds copping a knock to his ribs that has ruled him out of this game.

That means the inexperienced duo of Ezra Mam and Tyrone Roberts will be the Broncos’ halves pairing on Friday night, but at least Selwyn Cobbo and Kotoni Staggs are back from Origin duty to add some firepower out wide.

Meanwhile, the Storm have found their groove again after heavy defeats to the Panthers and Cowboys, defeating the Sea Eagles and Roosters over the last fortnight.

Jahrome Hughes is hugely important to the success of Melbourne, as was proven again after he missed those aforementioned defeats to the Cowboys and Panthers, with his combination with Cameron Munster, who’s confidence his sky-high after his performance in Origin, leading the Storm to a 26-18 win away to the Roosters last week.

Melbourne will view this game as a great chance to make another statement and rack up a big score, with their last four wins over Brisbane seeing them score 40 points or more. The Storm’s six-match winning streak earlier in the season were all by 13+ margins, so Craig Bellamy will be hoping for another big performance at home from his team.

VERDICT:

If Reynolds was playing, this could have been the game of the round, but in his absence Brisbane will do well to keep this one close.

The Storm are always tough to beat at AAMI Park and they’ve re-discovered their mojo from earlier in the season. Expect Hughes, Munster and Grant to carve up through the middle as the Storm run out relatively comfortable winners (Best Storm to win both halves odds $1.70 with bet365.)
