Roosters vs Storm Preview & Prediction

Both the Roosters and Storm will be hoping their Origin stars get through Wednesday night’s blockbuster unscathed for Saturday night’s big clash at the SCG.

It’s been an indifferent first half of the season for the Roosters – they are sitting in sixth spot on the ladder with a 7-6 record, but come into this clash having lost four of their last seven outings.

Consistency has been tough to find for Trent Robinson’s side – the Roosters appeared as if they were about to go on a run after wins over the Eels and Sharks, but they stumbled last week in the nation’s capital, going down by six points to the Raiders.

You could argue the Roosters were missing Origin stars James Tedesco, Daniel Tupou and Lindsay Collins, but the Raiders were also without Jack Wighton and Josh Papalii. The Roosters had plenty of chances on the Raiders’ line, but Luke Keary and Sam Walker just couldn’t find a way through.

Meanwhile, the Storm returned to the winners circle before last week’s bye with a comfortable 20-point victory over the Sea Eagles.

Melbourne have struggled badly without Jahrome Hughes in their previous two matches, conceding 30+ points to the Panthers and Cowboys and scoring just one try in each game. Hughes returned for the win over Manly and he will be hoping halves partner Cameron Munster pulls up fit from Origin so their combination can start firing again.

The Storm were on fire before Hughes’ injury with six consecutive 13+ victories and Craig Bellamy will be hoping his side can get back to that sort of form here.

VERDICT:

The Roosters are decent odds for the upset here, but they are pretty unreliable at the moment with four defeats from their last seven games.

Melbourne have dominated recent meetings, winning the last four and registering a combined 66-4 score in both both 2021 games. In fact, the Roosters have only scored two tries in their last three games against Melbourne.

With the Roosters struggling to score against Canberra last week, the Melbourne defence should be too strong here and propel the Storm to another victory (Best Storm -5.5 line odds $1.91 with bet365.)
