Can you imagine getting dropped after scoring a hat trick and producing two try assists in a 32-point win? Unfortunately, that’s happened for Storm young gun Brodie Croft, who will return back to reserve grade with Cooper Cronk (and Tohu Harris) returning to the side this weekend.
Nevertheless, the Storm keeps on rolling and will look to roll over the Rabbitohs who produced a strong second half last week to run over the Warriors.
Three wins in a row for South Sydney will have their confidence at a 2017-high as they’re averaging 30 pointers per game during this win streak, however, Melbourne has the stingiest defence in the league and will be looking to fine-tune that as finals football nears.
Melbourne are firm favourites and their wingers will only look to close the gap on Johnston for most tries this season in the comfortable win.
