Match Preview.
Another important match in Round 22 of the NRL as the Melbourne Storm take on the Cronulla Sharks in the final game of the round.

The Melbourne Storm head into this game with the chance to jump back up into top spot and lead the race for the Minor Premiership. After a horrid second half to lose to the Rabbitohs last week, they’ll be happy to see the Roosters got the win to make up for it, however it leads to the most exciting run home we’ve ever had! Three teams tied for the minor premiership if the Storm can grab the win here, so let’s see what the Storm can do.

The Cronulla Sharks on the other hand are in all sorts as to where they can end up. This game is a chance to jump back into the top 4 fight, however a loss here and they join the Broncos a tough battle to avoid dropping out of the top 8 via the fast finishing 9th placed Tigers. The Sharks have had some mixed results as of late, and where they finish in the 8 is still yet to be seen, however a win here and they can almost guarantee their spot in the 2018 finals series and come home strong for a possible top 4 spot.

Prediction: Storm by 10.
I’m picking the Storm in this one. At home with their supporters behind them and the chance to jump back up into top spot again? Who wouldn’t back them.

-Blake.
