  • Melbourne Storm got the better of Sydney Roosters in a thrilling contest last week as debutant Grant Anderson notched a brace of tries to help his side solidify their spot in the top four.
  • The Storm were pushed all the way by the Roosters and had to dig deep to get the job done but in their quest to make it three straight wins, they have suffered a setback with Ryan Papenhuyzen posting a positive COVID-19 test when he was in line to return from injury.

Starting 13: Meaney, Ieremia, Seve, Olam, Anderson, Munster, Hughes, J. Bromwich, H. Grant, Asofa-Solomona, Kaufusi, K. Bromwich, King – Interchanges: B. Smith, Kamikamica, Loiero, Lewis – Reserves: Nikorima, MacDonald, J. Grant, Wishart, Howarth

Unavailable: Christian Welch, George Jennings, Tepai Moeroa, Ryan Papenhuyzen, Reimis Smith, Tom Eisenhuth, Xavier Coates


  • Brisbane Broncos overcame plenty of in-game strife with injuries to complete the job against Canberra Raiders last week and make it seven successive victories in the NRL but they are counting the cost of that success ahead of this tough clash.
  • Adam Reynolds, Herbie Farnworth and Payne Haas were all withdrawn during that contest with the former two ruled out here while Haas will have to prove his fitness after suffering a shoulder knock.

Starting 13: Martin, Oates, Staggs, Lee, Cobbo, Mam, Roberts, Jensen, Walters, Haas, Capewell, Riki, Carrigan – Interchanges: Turpin, Hetherington, Flegler, Palasia – Reserves: Pereira, Kennedy, Hoeter, Willison, James

Unavailable: Albert Kelly, Tesi Niu, Tyson Gamble, Herbie Farnworth, Adam Reynolds, Cory Paix


In-form Brisbane Broncos take on Melbourne Storm looking to highlight their top four credentials but they will have to do so without some key men after suffering further injury problems last week. Skipper Adam Reynolds copped a rib injury during his side’s seventh win in-a-row as they got the better of Canberra Raiders while Herbie Farnworth is done for the year with a torn bicep. The Storm also have several players on the sidelines but they look a lot stronger on paper, especially in the spine, and boasting a strong record on home soil, Craig Bellamy’s side are likely to be too good here with the hosts able to win by 13+ points.
