I reckon with troops still to come back, if the Storm win tonight, they win the comp. Rabbits will be tough though. They have the superior pack.

Warriors should win and should win well.

Roosters-Sharks is a flip of the coin. I’d lean slightly towards the Roosters.

Broncos way too strong for Saints. Hitting form at the right time. Could do some damage in the next month.

Should be a good game. Looking forward to the battle of Smith and Cook.

Might be a good idea to edit your thread title to include 'week 1'

I see where C Smith is about 50 points below El Masri's record of most points - he must be chasing it.

Storm have clearly up the grubby tactics knowing that the refs won’t blow penalties.

Crowd looks tiny for this one. Don’t know why they didn’t play it tomorrow when there was no AFL in Melbourne

Melbourne drop the ball and give away a penalty on zero tackle, Souths with a shot from right in front to go 6 up.

Souths pack is too strong. They’re walking up the field. Storm are crawling, lucky to make 30-40m a set.

I know Melbourne are grubs but I just can't feel sorry for Sum Burgess when he spills it cold.

Souths are trying to load up early before fatigue sets in and Melbourne work into the grind.
