Which NRL teams are looking good ahead of round 3?
Melbourne Storn v Canterbury Bankstown Bulldogs
The rematch between the 2012 grand finalists will see some new (and some missing) faces in the mix. Canterbury are still struggling to fire without attacking ace Ben Barba, whose absence has been notable for a side desperate to post some points.
Melbourne have not had a problem scoring points or putting them on the leader board as they look to make it 3 straight wins to start the season. Playing like the premiership team who spent a holiday winning the WCC, Melbourne are back in control.
Prediction: Melbourne by 12
Wests Tigers v Parramatta Eels
Farah and Marshall against Sandow and Hayne. Both teams rely on their stars to carry them through and the form of the team depends heavily on the form of these influential players. Hayne and Sandow were on fire in round one for Parramatta but looked less exciting last week.
Marshall and Farah bounced back from a shocking first round defeat to play well against the Panthers. The question is who will bring their form into round three. First home ground match of the season should see the Tigers up the tempo for their fans.
Prediction: Tigers by 4
