It is not often five-day turnarounds get a good wrap but as far as Cheyse Blair is concerned games are better than training.

Storm has just five days to recover from their ANZAC Day win before travelling to Wollongong to take on the Dragons for what will be a top-of-the-table clash.

Melbourne had to dig deep to beat the Warriors in Round 8, scoring two late tries to make it back-to-back wins.

It was a grueling match but the playing group is confident of being ready to go once Sunday arrives.

“I don’t mind short turnarounds. It is more footy for us and less training,” Blair said.

“Last week we went from a Saturday to the following Tuesday and I reckon that was harder because you are just sitting there waiting a long time for the game.”

The Dragons have the best attack in the competition and were on a five-game winning streak before falling to the Roosters in golden point on ANZAC Day.

They will be without captain Gareth Widdop who injured his knee in knee but with the likes of Josh Dugan back in the Red V lineup, the will still pose a significant threat to the purple line.

“He is such a big part of their team and their attack,” Blair said.

“But in saying that they are still number one in the stacking stat so I am sure whoever comes in will play his role.”
