How to watch Wests Tigers vs Melbourne Storm NRL live and match preview


The Melbourne Storm will be looking for redemption as they kick off their 2022 campaign this week.

The Melbourne Storm were premiership favourites for the majority of 2021 before suffering a heartbreaking preliminary final loss to Penrith. With the loss of several key players in the off-season, they have a big point to prove this year.

The Wests Tigers lost 6 of their first 7 last season and never recovered, eventually finishing 13th with an 8-16 record.

Who will win Tigers vs Storm?

Melbourne Storm round 1 record

Coming off a poor season last year, the Wests Tigers have added Jackson Hastings, Tyrone Peachey and Oliver Gildart with all 3 looking in good form to start the season.

The Melbourne Storm still present a stiff challenge, even without Cam Munster and Harry Grant. In the off-season, the Storm also lost Josh Addo-Carr, Dale Finucane and Nicho Hynes.

This season will be a fascinating one for the Storm as they seek to remain a powerhouse despite another string of departures. Regardless of all that though, we feel they'll be too strong in this one.
