There can be few more motivating opportunities in sport than the chance to reverse a grand final defeat.

Manly get that on Sunday in Sydney when they face premiers Melbourne in a repeat of the last year's national rugby league grand final.

As it was a year ago the two clubs have dominated the NRL season but what isn't predicted is a repeat of the 34-8 mauling the Storm dished out last year.

Manly lock Glenn Stewart says the memories of that experience will help them this time around.
