Preview

Top vs bottom in round three. Who’s excited?

Craig Bellamy’s men sit atop the NRL ladder and at the bottom of media exposure as they continue to grind their way through the competition. Against Brisbane, their offensive game looked liked it belonged at the bottom of the ladder but they managed to find a way with a stroke of luck on Josh Addo-Carr’s game winning try. Addo-Carr’s start to the season has been fantastic and it will need to continue that way with opposite winger Suliasi Vunivalu out for 4-6 weeks with a shoulder injury. Billy Slater starts at fullback for the injured Cam Munster and will be looking to add a bit of polish to his first game in over 12 months.

For the Tigers, their league-worst attack doesn’t bode well for them against an always structured and stingy Storm defence. After a hot start against Souths (34 points), the Tigers attack has gone brutally cold with just one try in 160 minutes of football.

With assistant coach Andrew Webster at the helm following Jason Taylor’s sacking, we hope to see a rejuvenated Tigers side on the field come Sunday afternoon. With all of the talent they have on their list, it surely cannot go to waste.

The Storm will have to be wary of a refreshed Tigers side in front of their home faithful and despite some key injuries to the boys from down south, we can’t go passed them in this one. It should be closer than the usual top v bottom clash though.
