Preview:
The Eels has a huge win last week over a Dragons side that is currently battling a form slump while Melbourne are in a mini slump of their own with 2 wins on the trot at home. 

The Eels will be hoping to replicate their performance last week and ambush a Storm side who seems a bit vulnerable at the moment but I’m sure they will be up for a tightly fought match at AAMI Park. 

Main Key Match Up: The Fox v The Plane
The Plane is on the tarmac and is ready to take off in Melbourne this week after crossing for  3 meat pies last week. This week his match up is current state of origin winger Josh Addo-Carr and this is going to be a very intriguing match up. 

Addo-Carr is in excellent form this season which has seen him selected for New South Wales and Jarryd Hayne is finally fit and looking for a new Eels contract so it’s no coincidence he comes into this match full of confidence. 

Can the Hayne Plane at full flight take down the Fox?

Prediction: Storm by 8
I predict the Storm will come away with a close win. The Eels will be high after a big win last week but the Storm don’t lose 3 on the trot often and I can’t see them starting now.
