THE PREDICTION

New Zealand Warriors return home in Round 14 where they have saved their best performances this campaign but they will have to be at their best to try overcome this strong Melbourne Storm side. The visitors outclassed them several weeks ago 42-20 and they are currently riding an impressive ten-game winning streak. They will be without Nelson Asofa-Solomona who is suspended while they will analyse the condition of their State of Origin representatives Cameron Munster, Felise Kaufusi and Josh Addo-Carr, but they still possess plenty of quality in their squad. Having won their last ten games against the Warriors, the Storm will be confident and more than capable of picking up another comprehensive win here and making 11 in a row.
