2013 National Rugby League Week 3: Melbourne Storm vs.
Canterbury-Bankstown Bulldogs
March 20, 2013 by Marc Jerbs

On Thursday, defending NRL champion Melbourne Storm will host the Canterbury-Bankstown Bulldogs in a rematch of the 2012 NRL Grand-Final in Week 3 of the 2013 NRL season at the AAMI Park. Game time is set at 8:05PM Australian time.

Melbourne started the season with two successive wins beating Nth Queensland and St. George Illawara. They that the Bulldogs will not go down lightly as evident in their hard fought 14-4 win during last year's NRL Grand-Final.

Expect this game to be highly physical and controversial as well. A lot of players will jostle with one another as tempers may flare up during this anticipated rematch.

Canterbury-Bankstown started the season with loss against Nth Queensland but rebounded well against Parramatta in Week 2. The Bulldogs will try to avenge their defeat in the Grand-Final against the Cowboys. They must breakdown the front line defense of Melbourne to have a chance to beat them at their home field.

The sportsbook handicappers have installed the Melbourne Storm as a 10.5-point favorite to beat the Canterbury-Bankstown on Thursday night.
