Storm vs Rabbitohs Betting Tips & Match Preview


The Storm and the Rabbitohs meet on Friday with both teams looking to bounce back after disappointing defeats.

Melbourne were punished at home by the Raiders who became the outright favourites for the premiership off the back of the win while the Bunnies were outpointed by the premiers on Friday.

Storm Form & Team News


The Storm were soundly beaten by the Raiders last week and the team has conceded they need to tweak their structure to suit the ad-lib nature of the game due to the new six-again rule. Melbourne went from sitting comfortably inside the top-four to right on the edge of the eight based on that loss alone.

After Nelson Asofa-Solomona suspension, Christian Welch will start at prop and Ryley Jacks joins the bench. 

The Storm team for Friday can be found below:

1. Ryan Papenhuyzen 2. Suliasi Vunivalu 3. Justin Olam 4. Marion Seve 5. Josh Addo-Carr 6. Cameron Munster 7. Jahrome Hughes 8. Jesse Bromwich 9. Cameron Smith 10. Christian Welch 11. Felise Kaufusi 12. Kenneath Bromwich 13. Dale Finucane 14. Brandon Smith 15. Tino Fa’asuamaleaui 16. Ryley Jacks 17. Max King 18. Brenko Lee 19. Albert Vete 20. Darryn Schonig 21. Chris Lewis

Rabbitohs Form & Team News

 
The Bunnies gifted the Sydney Roosters their first win of the season and despite looking like they could have had a late chance to make a game of it, never truly looked like they were a winning hope. The loss leaves the Rabbitohs in 11th position and in dire need of a win to keep in touch with the top-eight.

Patrick Mago replaces Tom Amone on the interchange, while centre James Roberts has been named on the reserves again and is unlikely to play.

The Rabbitohs team for Friday can be found below:

1. Latrell Mitchell 2. Dane Gagai 3. Campbell Graham 4. Braidon Burns 5. Alex Johnston 6. Troy Dargan 7. Adam Reynolds 8. Tevita Tatola 9. Damien Cook 10. Thomas Burgess 11. Jaydn Su’A 12. Cameron Murray 13. Liam Knight 14. Mark Nicholls 15. Ethan Lowe 16. Bayley Sironen 17. Patrick Mago 18. Bryson Goodwin 19. Tom Amone 20. James Roberts 21. Keaon Koloamatangi

Storm vs Rabbitohs Match Up


Damien Cook and Cameron Smith are two of the best and brightest in the NRL and with the new six-again rule they will need to be at their most alert on Friday. The quick ruck speed to suit the dynamic Cook more than Smith, but don't count ouf the wily veteran's ability to adapt and thrive on the fly.
