Storm to review Napier
Melbourne Storm will soon review the Club's recent home game and trip to Napier in New Zealand.
Based off that review, the Club will then assess its options for a home game to again be played away for the 2016 season. Storm members can be assured they will be the first to know and informed once a decision is made in the near future.
CEO Dave Donaghy thanked the people of Napier for helping make the trip a success in Round 20 as Storm left New Zealand with two premiership points courtesy of a 22-4 win over St George Illawarra.
"The people and town of Napier were extremely accommodating and helped us feel at home during our time in Hawkes Bay which made for a great experience," Donaghy said.
"As a Club we will be conducting a thorough review of the exercise and will come to a decision for 2016 once that review is complete.
"When plans are finalised, our members will be the first to know."
Media reports in Queensland today have suggested Storm would be taking a home game to Cairns in 2016. Unfortunately for our members and supporters in Cairns, this is not the case. There is a possibility the Club could be sent to Cairns as an away team for an NRL fixture as has been the case in the past with games in Adelaide and most recently Perth (2014), but only as the away team.
