The Melbourne Storm will host the New Zealand Warriors in game eight, Round 8 National Rugby League Telstra Premiership in 2023; It doesn’t get more competitive in round eight as these two fight it out for another two points; The Melbourne Storm sitting in eight on the ladder wouldn’t be feeling too comfortable because if they lose they could give up that spot to the Roosters, well that’s if the Roosters win as well which is very possible.
The New Zealand Warriors are having a great season sitting sixth on the ladder which is something we haven’t witnessed in a while, that being written if they win, they could climb up to third on the ladder! wouldn’t that be something for the Warriors supporters? but, in all honestly, this will not happen, that’s right, The Melbourne Storm will win today, one can postulate.
Let’s look at why the Melbourne Storm will win, they are big! they have Nelson Asofa-Solomona, and Justin Olam the human missile! but let’s be honest now, The Melbourne Storm will get the win today because their defence is better, and their record against the Warriors is better, the Warriors have struggled to beat Melbourne in the past with Craig Bellamy at the wheel, so the Warriors have the new coach whos doing really well Andrew Webster, the rookie if New Zealand is to win it’s due to this blokes game plan to beat the Storm, that’s why we are backing Mr Bellamy!
Aaron Pene, Nelson Asofa-Solomona, Nick Meaney, Tepai Moeroa and Tyran Wishart are in for the Storm, and Marata Niukore, and Viliami Vailea slots in for the New Zealand Warriors.
