Kick-off is at 1.45. 

Experts are tipping the NRL Storm to beat the Newcastle Knight Rugby League team.

If you’re looking for great odds Picklebet has the Storm at $1.71 and the Knights at $2.03.

Newcastle Knights Tips

The Newcastle Knights have confirmed their squad for this game. 5 new players are added to the squad and 9 older players have been excluded. 

The Knights seem to be experimenting with their line-up to test if the team will play 2024 with a leaner team that’s less experienced. 

Newcastle Knights aren’t this week’s favorites but we expect a great round of footy out of the team this weekend.

If you are up for a bet, Picklebet has the Sharks at short odds at $2.03

Melbourne Storm Tips

The Melbourne Storm NRL club announced their 28-man squad for this game four days ago.

It’s a very different side to the team that was fielded one week ago. The majority of the team is made up of their regular starters.

Will Warbrick, Nick Meaney, Xavier Coates, Jahrome Hughes, Tui Kamikamica, Harry Grant, Josh King, and Eli Katoa have all been included in the starting lineup.

Bookies are favoring the Storm for a win. With the odds being set almost even it is a tough bet to place.

Betting Tips

The Storm looks great for a win, Coach Craig Bellamy is known to always have his side in peak physical condition. In pre-season matches match fitness plays a huge role as some teams simply aren’t ready.

The Newcastle Knights looked dangerous in 2023. In my opinion, they were unlucky not to make the Grand Finals last year. I’m tipping the team to surprise everyone this year and make a grand final appearance.
