Ben Hampton (Melbourne Storm):	NRL

As a result of warm conditions forecast for the weekend, Melbourne Storm has made the decision to move the club's Family Day and Trial Match back by one hour on Saturday 8 February.

The move has been made to ensure comfort for our members and fans as well as our players. Proceedings at Family Day will commence from 2:30pm while kick-off for the Trial Match has been pushed back to 6:30pm.

Seating for Storm's trial match against Canberra will all be located in the Western Stand of AAMI Park meaning by 4pm patrons will be sitting in total shade.

For players on the field, extra drinks breaks will be included with the trial split up into four quarters.

It would be appreciated if media outlets could assist in getting this change of time out to fans on behalf of Melbourne Storm.
