THE PREDICTION

Melbourne Storm ended their losing streak at four as they overcame New Zealand Warriors last week but it was an unconvincing victory and they have several more gears to go through to get to a level that is anywhere near their best. They will at least take some confidence from winning again and that could relieve the pressure on them while the return of Brandon Smith and potentially Xavier Coates will also be a massive help. They now face bottom of the ladder Gold Coast Titans who made it nine straight losses last week as they were downed by Canberra Raiders and it is difficult to see where their next win is coming from. It is extremely unlikely to be in this fixture against a side that they have lost to in their seven previous matchups and with that in mind, the Storm should be able to claim another success and do so by 13+ points.
