Another tough encounter for the Roosters Holden Cup side this weekend, they take on a Melbourne Storm side fresh full of confidence after an impressive 30-10 win over Manly on Monday night.

Just two points separate the two teams on the competition ladder, and with both sides coming off victories this Saturday night's match is a game not to be missed.

The Storm currently have the second best defence in the competition, but sit well outside the top 8 when it comes to their attack.

What does that mean?

Well, firstly it means our dynamic halves, Tyler Cornish and Samisoni Langi will have to step up in order to penetrate an impressive purple defensive line.

Cornish is in good form, coming off a two try performance in North Queensland, whilst five-eighth Langi has been arguably the best performed player all season.

Improvements in defence have been the cornerstone of the Tricolours rise up the table, and similar efforts will go a long way to containing a Storm attack that has at times struggled to score points.

There is a few noticeable changes to the Tricolours line-up for Saturday's clash.

Captain Rhyse Martin, who has been scoring tries for fun in the second row has moved to centre whilst experienced 20s player Clarrie Moore comes in to the line-up for the first time this season.

2013 SG Ball stand out and dummy half Bradley Dietz has also been recalled to the team.

Make sure you get to Allianz Stadium early on Saturday to support the boys in what will be one of their toughest tests of the season.
