Friday Night Footy | Storm Preliminary Final

For this week's edition of Friday Night Footy, we take a look at the last time we met the Melbourne Storm which was in an epic Preliminary Final at the Sydney Cricket Ground.

Being a Grand Final decider, it was bound to be a physical clash against the side the Tricolours faced in the previous year's Grand Final. 

While a predicted neck-and-neck battle ensued, the Roosters reigned victorious on the night to set up a classic Grand Final against the Canberra Raiders. 

Enjoy the full match below!
