Match Preview:
It’s a tale of two stories this match is. We have a young and inconsistent Titans team with nothing but pride to play for. 
 
While they’ve had a shining light in young Alexander Brimson being discovered this year, it’s not the ideal end to 2018. They’ve had some big performances and some truly forgettable performances. The Gold Coast Titans will be coming into this game for two reasons. The first reason is pride. At home they’ll want to put on a show and finish the year in style. The second reason is to ruin the Storm’s chance at the Minor Premiership. I can guarantee you now they will be wanting to send the Storm home in a bad mood.
 
The Melbourne Storm have a lot to play for however. The top 4 is such a tight race, that for the Storm, one single loss will determine wether they play round 1 of the finals at home or on the road. Not to mention the Minor Premiership as well. With the race between the Storm, Roosters and Rabbitohs for the top spot, I can guarantee you now that the Titans will be taking on an extremely hungry Storm side. Expect a huge performance here from Melbourne.
 
Prediction: Storm by 20.
With a home semi final and the Minor Premiership at stake, it’s going to take an unbelievable Titans performance to knock off Melbourne.
