Minor Premiership up for grabs

On Friday night Melbourne Storm has the opportunity to win its third successive Minor Premiership. The equation is simple, win and the J.J. Giltinan Shield will remain in Melbourne. Should the result not go their way, Storm fans will be forced to wait until the Roosters play the Eels on Saturday night to determine if they will stay on top of the NRL ladder. Craig Bellamy's men will be determined to keep destiny in their own hands and get the job done on Friday night.
