NRL Game Of The Week •

A mouth-watering match between two of the league’s heavyweights headlines Round 17 as the Storm host the Dragons. Both teams escaped with a win last week to solidify their top-four positions. The Dragons snapped a run of six straight losses to the Eels with a 20-18 victory at WIN Stadium to remain on top of the ladder with a 12-3 record. It’s just the second time in their history they have started with 12 wins from 15 matches – the first was their premiership year of 2010. The Storm have now won four consecutive matches for the first time this season with all four coming in different states. Both teams will be without key personnel due to Origin duty; the Storm are missing Billy Slater, Will Chambers, Cameron Munster, Felise Kaufusi, Tim Glasby and Josh Addo-Carr while the Dragons will be making the trip minus Ben Hunt, Tyson Frizell, Jack de Belin, Paul Vaughan and Tariq Sims. Some insights for the game are:
• Melbourne has won 15 of its last 18 night matches at AAMI Park.
• The Dragons have lost each of their three previous night matches at AAMI Park by a margin of 1-6 points.
• Suliasi Vunivalu has scored four tries in his three previous appearances against the Dragons.
• Each of the last six contests between the Storm and Dragons have been won by the favourites.
• Each of the last five night matches between Melbourne and St. George Illawarra have gone UNDER the total match points line.
