If last week’s results are anything to go by, Thursday’s 2019 NRL Premiership clash at AAMI Park should be a belter.

Melbourne Storm coach Craig Bellamy challenged his charges after a disappointing month ended in a road loss to Cronulla in round eight – and boy, did they respond.

The men in purple tore Parramatta to shreds at Suncorp Stadium, piling on 11 tries and nine conversions in a 64-10 walloping.

They lost both Jahrome Hughes and Curtis Scott in the process, which sees Ryan Papenhuyzen and Marion Seve promoted to the starting 13.

Patrick Kaufusi fills out the bench as the Storm welcome an in-form Wests Tigers outfit.

Coach Michael Maguire (no affiliation with yours truly) has built a reputation for gritty, defence-first football, but it was all attack in the first half against Penrith last Friday.

The Tigers blasted out the most dominant opening spell of the season so far, laying on some five tries in the first 17 minutes as they waltzed to a 30-4 win.

That scoreline would have been even better had Esan Marsters slotted more than two of his six conversion attempts.

Josh Aloiai missed the Magic Round with concussion, but he returns this week in place of Oliver Clark.

How do you single out one Storm player after last week’s free-for-all? JAC was one of two players to score a double against Parra and the star winger is a decent chance to replicate that feat on Thursday night.

Robert Jennings NRL oddsRobert Jennings
First tryscorer – $19
Anytime tryscorer – $4
Two or more tries – $26

Wests have had a lot of joy from their centres in the past few weeks, with Jennings and Marsters scoring six tries between them in three games. They are tough to split, but we favour the former at longer odds.

Storm vs Tigers betting predictions

Both sides will be brimming with confidence after their big performances at Suncorp last week.

The Storm will not be satisfied, however, and still have work to do before they are mentioned in the same breath as Sydney and Souths.

The old stagers will take centre stage in this clash, with Cameron Smith and Robbie Farah the pick of the battles.

Another area of interest is the halves, where Brodie Croft and Cam Munster will take on Luke Brooks and the evergreen Benji Marshall.

As good as the Tigers were last week, it is hard to see them surprising a Storm side that has already had a big wake-up call.

Melbourne should be too good and too hungry at home.
