Men of League Heritage Round

Round 19 is Heritage Round across the NRL, celebrating the history and tradition of rugby league.

Melbourne entered the NRL in 1998 and made an immediate impression, capturing their first premiership only a year later.

The Storm have made the NRL finals 14 times in their 17 seasons so far, to establish themselves as one of the most dominant clubs in the modern era.

The Storm have had 17 players represent Australia, with Cameron Smith given the honour of leading his country, whilst 22 Melbourne players have appeared in State of Origin football, 12 for NSW and 10 for Queensland.

WATCH Cameron Smith talk through the Club's Heritage Round match-up against the Panthers in the video player above.

See Friday night football at AAMI Park when Storm host Penrith on July 17. Book tickets.
