THE TEAM NEWS
- The Dolphins produced an impressive display to topple Cronulla Sharks in Magic Round and come into this refreshed on the back of their bye week.
- They are now in the midst of a six-game L-W sequence so would be staring down the barrel of a defeat if that continues but they get skipper Jesse Bromwich back for this one while Mark Nicholls could further boost the front row stocks.
Starting 13: Tabuai-Fidow, Isaako, Aitken, B. Lee, Niu, Nikorima, Katoa, J. Bromwich, Marshall-King, K. Bromwich, Kaufusi, Lemuelu, Gilbert – Interchanges: Wallace, Milford, Stone, Ese’ese – Reserves: Nicholls, Donoghue, E. Lee, Te Whare, Collins
Unavailable: Sean O’Sullivan (Injured)
- Melbourne Storm produced a professional display last week to get the better of Brisbane Broncos and will be eager to build on that as they aim to challenge for a top four spot.
- The Storm have been inconsistent this year but will need to improve on that if they are to compete for the Premiership and head coach Craig Bellamy will be content with the news that Nelson Asofa-Solomona can play despite copping a rib injury last time out.
Starting 13: Meaney, Warbrick, Smith, Olam, Coates, Munster, Hughes, Asofa-Solomona, H. Grant, Welch, Loiero, Katoa, King – Interchanges: Garlick, Pene, Eisenhuth, Kamikamica – Reserves: Anderson, Sims, Moeroa, Wishart, Nikorima
Unavailable: Dean Ieremia (Injured), Ryan Papenhuyzen (Injured), Alec MacDonald (Injured), Jonah Pezet (Injured), George Jennings (Injured), Jack Howarth (Injured)
The Dolphins have already produced several shocks in their maiden campaign in the NRL and will be eyeing up another one as they take on Melbourne Storm. The home side have been inconsistent of late but have still picked up some impressive victories, most recently against Cronulla Sharks. For the Storm, they got the better of Brisbane Broncos last week in what could be a turning point in their season and while this could go either way, the visitors are expected to prevail if they get anywhere close to last week’s performance levels.
