Melbourne are in the very rare position of having lost four on the trot and now sitting outside the Top 4 and they are eyeing an old bunny to kick start their late-season resurgence.
The Storm have now remarkably lost four on the trot. If there is one team they would like to meet though to turn it all around it is the Warriors.
Melbourne have just owned New Zealand in recent years. The Storm have won 12 on the trot against the Warriors with 10 covers in that stretch. The last five wins have all been by 22-plus including a 70-10 win on Anzac Day this year. Melbourne have won the last four at Mt Smart.
The Warriors were very poor in the back half against the Raiders last week and have covered just 8 of 21 as a double digit underdog. They have covered just 3 of 16 night games.
The Storm are missing plenty of talent but against a struggling Warriors outfit they should be laser-focused.
