    Key match-ups in Storm-Eels NRL final

    Fijian stars Suliasi Vunivalu and Semi Radradra headline the key match-ups in the NRL qualifying final between Melbourne and Parramatta.

    - article from www.rugbyleague.co.nz

    THREE KEY MATCH-UPS IN THE STORM-EELS QUALIFYING FINAL:

    * SULIASI VUNIVALU (Storm) v SEMI RADRADRA (Eels):

    The man who finished as the NRL's leading tryscorer versus the man who is arguably the most in-form in the league. The last time these two teams met, Radradra took just 10 minutes to leave his imprint on the win. The flying Fijians would've made a salivating combination at the World Cup, however Radradra's impending move to France has robbed fans of that treat. They'll have to make do with this mouth-watering match-up instead.

    * COOPER CRONK (Storm) v MITCHELL MOSES (Eels):

    It's been yet another masterful season from the Storm orchestrator, whose legacy at the club can be affirmed with another premiership. In his way is the Eels' upstart in Moses, whose flailing career has been revived by his mid-season switch from the Wests Tigers. Cronk has a combined 37 try and line-break assists compared to Moses' 34.

    * NELSON ASOFA SOLOMONA (Storm) v KENNY EDWARDS (Eels):

    This one might be out of left field, but there's no denying these powerhouse substitutes could prove to be a match-winner for their respective sides. Highly touted since his debut in 2015, Asofa-Solomona has struck a purple patch of form over the past two months that included most of his 46 tackle busts and 18 offloads. In contrast, Edwards' emotional and erratic energy could be just the injection coach Brad Arthur needs should he require a momentum swing.
