NRL: Warriors trip holds no fear for Storm

Melbourne Storm are flying high at the top of the NRL ladder as they prepare to cross the Tasman to take on New Zealand Warriors.

The Storm have won nine of their 12 games so far this season and can be backed at 6.50 to end Penrith’s dominance by winning the 2024 grand final.

Next up is a trip to take on the Warriors, who could have their work cut out just trying to make the top eight. They are 2.10 to play finals this season.

There are two other games to look forward to on Saturday with Parramatta Eels taking on Sydney Roosters, while Wests Tigers entertain the Gold Coast Titans.

Storm flying high

. What: New Zealand Warriors v Melbourne Storm
. Where: Go Media Stadium, Auckland
. When: 17:30 (AEST), Saturday 15th June 2024
. How to watch: Kayo, Foxtel
. Odds: New Zealand Warriors 1.91, Melbourne Storm 1.91

Melbourne Storm returned to winning ways as they fought out a 36-28 victory over Newcastle Knights last weekend.

They now need to back it up at Go Media Stadium, a venue that has been a happy hunting ground in recent history.

The Storm have won five of the last six trips there and can be backed at 3.75 to win Saturday’s game by 13+ points.

The Warriors have been handed a massive boost with the news that Shaun Johnson is ready to make his return to action.

Addin Fonua-Blake is bang in form for the Warriors having scored four tries in the past five games, and he is 4.25 to score at anytime on Saturday.

The Warriors have not beaten the Storm in Auckland since way back in 2015, and have lost each of the last 15 meetings between the two sides.

They can be backed at 7.00 to snap the streak and win this game by 1-5 points.

Tigers return to Leichhardt

. What: Wests Tigers v Gold Coast Titans
. Where: Leichhardt Oval, Sydney
. When: 15:00 (AEST), Saturday 15th June 2024
. How to watch: Kayo, Foxtel
. Odds: Wests Tigers 2.40, Gold Coast Titans 1.58

Wests Tigers need to find some inspiration from somewhere as they attempt to snap a nine-game losing streak.

A return to Leichhardt Oval could be what they need as they prepare to take on the Titans.

They beat Cronulla Sharks 32-6 at the venue back in round three, one of two wins they have picked up this season.

Jahream Bula likes Leichhardt having scored three tries in two games there, and is 2.80 to score at anytime.

The Titans have won the last five games against the Tigers and are priced at 3.40 to win another by 1-12 points.

Sivo boost for Eels

. What: Parramatta Eels v Sydney Roosters
. Where: CommBank Stadium, Sydney
. When: 19:35 (AEST), Saturday 15th June 2024
. How to watch: Kayo, Foxtel
. Odds: Parramatta Eels 2.75, Sydney Roosters 1.45

Parramatta have been boosted by the news that star winger Maika Sivo has recovered from a hamstring injury and will be able to take his place in the side.

Sivo will be key for the Eels and he can be backed at 7.50 to score the first try of the game, or 1.72 to score at anytime.

The Roosters, who return after a week off due to the bye, have won four of the past five games against the Eels.

They won by 22 points in this fixture last season and are priced at 2.40 to win by 13+ points this year.
