Melbourne Storm Coach Craig Bellamy says a week’s break will benefit his side enormously heading into their home Preliminary Final on Saturday 26 September.
Storm earned the right to a week off and a home final at AAMI Park courtesy of their 20-18 victory over the Roosters last weekend.
“I think everyone would take the week off if they could get it,” Bellamy said.
“Obviously there is a bit of a theory there about losing your momentum – you can look at it two ways.
“After what happened last week with a couple of injuries we got the week off is going to be really handy for us…our other players get a rest as well.”
