Macca’s Match Up 2017 – Round 14 – Cronulla Sharks v Melbourne Storm
Let’s get the first game out of the way this week with a grand final rematch between ladder leaders. The Sharks v Storm will be the best game of the weekend by a long way. There is a lot of rivalry between Cronulla and Melbourne, with the Storm being defeated in last year’s grand final to the underdogs from the Shire.
There has been a little bit of niggle between these two over the season so it should make for an interesting bout. Both teams have the best defence in the competition but I think it will be Cronulla who will come home with the biscuits. If they get their attacking together, there is no reason they can’t win on Thursday night or even the premiership for that matter.
Slater and Holmes will be out to prove themselves and are both eyeing off a maroon jersey but with the rain and the wind predicted, I wouldn’t expect a pretty game.
