Match: Storm v Roosters
Round 6 -
Venue: AAMI Park
- Nine Network
- LIVE PASS
Gates open: 6.30pm
The undefeated Melbourne Storm and second-placed Sydney Roosters will meet under Friday night lights at AAMI Park for what is set to be a blockbuster Grand Final rematch.
The clash is arguably one of the most hotly anticipated games in the first half of the season, following Melbourne's heartbreaking loss on the biggest stage last year.
Storm narrowly missed its chance to clinch back-to-back premierships and the playing group will be keen to even the ledger.
Potential key match ups will include veteran Will Chambers against young rival Latrell Mitchell, as well as a showdown between former Storm teammate Cooper Cronk and his protégé Brodie Croft.
