NRL Round 15: Storm v Wests
Whenever Wests seem to be building momentum, they put in a performance that takes them back to square one.
With Adam Doueihi out this weekend and the Storm naming a strong line up, it is hard to foresee anything other than a big Storm win here.
Once again last weekend the Storm managed to withhold an early onslaught and then at the 20 minute mark, they start to physically dominate the ruck and captilisise on their opponent’s mistakes.
While new Tiger’s recruit Maumalolo has great go forward for a winger and is a very accomplished finisher, he is slow off the mark and I think Coach Bellamy will target a lot of his attack that way.
Mbye is back at 6 and Roberts is back in the centres, and both of those changes do not instil me with confidence. After being in camp up at the Sunshine Coast for the past month, the Storm look to be in a groove and at the top of their game.
Wests have a tendency to lift after a heavy defeat, so I do think Wests will start this game strongly and potentially keep it competitive, but the Storm should be too good and I think the line is about right here.
Predicted Score Storm 36 – Wests 10
