The Last Time We Met The Melbourne Storm was just six weeks ago in the 2020 NRL Telstra Premiership, in what was the first clash between the two sides to be contested at Suncorp Stadium.
In what was an out of the ordinary high scoring top four affair, it was four tries a piece in regular time and a penalty goal in Golden Point to send the Storm home as the victors on that occasion.
Josh Morris put in a two try performance for the Tricolours, while Brett Morris and Kyle Flanagan also joined in on the scoring for the Roosters.
Rarely an uneventful battle when these sides go head-to-head, Round 14 is likely to be no different when they meet again this Thursday night.
