How to watch Roosters vs Storm NRL live and match preview


The Roosters face a must win game to keep their finals hopes on track.

SUMMARY: Sydney Roosters vs Melbourne Storm is exclusive to Fox League, so you can watch it via Foxtel Now, Kayo and Foxtel iQ. New customers can watch for free with Foxtel Now's 10-day trial.

It's been a topsy-turvy NRL season, but this Roosters vs Storm clash will put 1 team on a good footing for the finals.

Both teams had last week off due to a bye, so with fresh legs they should bring plenty of energy, even if both clubs had Origin representatives on Wednesday night.

Roosters vs Storm match preview

The Roosters are part of 8 teams that sit between 6th and 13th and are only separated by 4 competition points.

It's this kind of traffic jam on the ladder that means results are becoming even more important with just 7 rounds remaining.

The Roosters will face only 1 team currently below them on the ladder in the run home, and will have no more byes to grab extra points.

Even when they've faced lower-ranked teams recently, like the Bulldogs and Knights, they've only managed tight wins.

In fact, things have been close of late for the Roosters, with 5 out of their last 6 games decided by 2 points or less.

Since the Roosters claimed the Grand Final against the Storm in 2018, they've only managed to beat them once.

The last time these 2 teams met in April, the Storm easily accounted for the Roosters.

Both teams have named their Origin stars to back up only a few days after the big game.

We think the Storm will win again and put the Roosters' final prospects on shaky ground.
