The Storm was clinical and ruthless last week against the Bunnies and will look to build on that again this week as they prepare themselves for a home run deep into the finals series.

While they may not be able to better themselves offensively, it’s consistency that they’ll be after and will face a Raiders side determined to end their season on a high.

Despite being in top form of late, they simply left their run too late in 2017. Ricky Stuart’s side will take plenty of confidence out of the back end of the season however and will look to disrupt Melbourne’s plans this Saturday.

The Storm is unchanged while Iosia Soliola comes back into the Raiders side after being suspended for a high shot on Billy Slater five weeks ago.

Melbourne will have their hands will defensively with Jack Wighton and Nick Cotric in sublime form while Joseph Leilua and Jordan Rapana need no introduction about what they can do.

In what’s set to be Cooper Cronk’s final home and away game in Melbourne, the Storm will be determined to chalk up another win. Suliasi Vunivalu (coming off a hat-trick) needs just one try to claim the mantle of the league’s leading try scorer in 2017 while Rapana (20) and Josh Addo-Carr (19) are also hot on his heels.

While Ricky Stuart will be determined to get one over his good mate Craig Bellamy, the Storm is almost at a robotic stage and will roll to victory.

Storm by 10.
