Match: Storm v Raiders
Round 22 -
Venue: AAMI Park, Melbourne
Blockbuster Saturday night football
Saturday night's top four clash with the Raiders promises to be match of the round.
Canberra will be imbued with confidence after a narrow loss to the second-placed Roosters last week, while Storm have recorded back-to-back victories on the road in the last two rounds.
Both Storm and the Raiders are leading the competition in terms of quality execution, with completion rates at 80 percent and 79 percent respectively.
Suliasi Vunivalu scored a hat-trick in our 22-10 win over Canberra at GIO Stadium in round two and our bench packs some serious points-scoring punch - Brandon Smith, Tui Kamikamica, Joe Stimson and Ryan Papenhuyzen have scored 16 tries between them.
Meanwhile, Raiders winger Charnze Nicoll-Klokstad averages almost 180 running metres per game and has crossed for 10 tries in 19 games.
