Saturday night's game between traditional rivals and competition heavyweights, the Brisbane Broncos and the Melbourne Storm promises to be one of matches of the season so far.
After their Year from Hell in 2010, the Melbourne Storm are out regain pride and credibility in the Rugby League world and are doing it in the best possible way on the field in 2011.
In what is great news for Queensland's State of Origin's chances this year, the Storm's Billy Slater, Cooper Cronk and Cameron Smith are in super form and cannot be allowed any latitude.
Brisbane's rock sold defence and has shut down some of the best attacking teams in the competition but this will be a true test of their strength.
Throw in two of the best young coaches in the NRL in Anthony Griffin and Craig Bellamy. And with Origin just around the corner and a number of players on both teams out to impress selectors, this match has football fans counting down the days, hours and minutes.
Make sure you are here to witness what promises to be a ripper.
