The Warriors were back to their brilliant best last week, defeating the Broncos in front of a packed Suncorp Stadium.
Sparking the form reversal for the Warriors was hooker Isaac Luke, who was at his best with several probing runs from dummy half.
This week the Storm welcome back five Origin stars and will look to continue their dominance over New Zealand.
Melbourne has won their last five against the Warriors and has kept them to under 14 points in every one of those games.
However, if Melbourne is to come away with the two points, they must improve their completion rate where they are currently ranked last in the NRL.
For the Warriors to win, they must play some off-the-cuff footy. With the Storm's major weakness being their inability to adapt to adlib play, the Warriors' best chance of victory is for Shaun Johnson and Roger Tuivasa-Sheck to be at their elusive best.
