After being on the losing end of one of the most thrilling finishes ever seen, Melbourne Storm are ready to atone this week, when they host the Cronulla Sharks .

If it wasn’t for a late surge by the Knights last week, Storm would've made it four wins in a row, and winger Sisa Waqa hailed a hero after his four-try effort. But the only positive was  that four 'meat pies' have put the Fijian in a prime position to finish as the competition's leading try scorer. Coach Craig Bellamy has made just one change to last week’s side, with Jordan McLean coming onto the bench pushing Junior Moors to 18th man.

The Sharks are fighting to keep themselves off the bottom of the ladder, but the recent run of injuries doesn’t help. At the moment they have eight of their starting 13 sitting on the sidelines. Andrew Fifita is the latest big name casualty - ruled out for the rest of the season with a broken arm and ankle injury. At least captain Paul Gallen returns this week from injury.

Storm are smarting after dropping a game against the lowly Knights, so the boys from the Shire might just be their whipping boys this week!
