Melbourne Storm vs Brisbane Broncos
The Melbourne Storm meet the Brisbane Broncos in a blockbuster the kick start the new NRL season and the great news for fans is that you can watch all of the action live online via our NRL live streaming partners.
Both the Storm and the Broncos are amongst the favourites for the title in 2019, so both will be looking to put a marker down in this opening round match that will take place at the impressive AAMI Park Stadium.
Both teams are packed with internationals, so whilst this is the first round and both may not be at full tilt, this is simply a must watch for Rugby fans and it is a game that is hugely difficult to predict.
With Scott Drinkwater injured, Jahrome Hughes gets first chance at replacing Billy Slater at fullback for Melbourne.
New signing, Shaun Fensom, can only make the bench for Brisbane.
Matches between these 2 giants of the NRL are always difficult to predict but with big changes for both clubs going into the season and with this been the first round, it really is simply a flip of the coin.
The Storm are always strong in Victoria so we are going to back them for the win but this could easily go either way.
