Billy Slater is feeling confident he will be on the field when Storm kicks-off it’s season on Monday 7 March.

The fullback is continuing his comeback from a shoulder injury sustained in the early parts of 2015.

“I hope to be there in a couple of weeks, I can’t give you a definitive answer right now,” Slater said on Tuesday.

“I’ve still got to jump through a few hurdles over the next two weeks. I’m pretty confident I’ll be there.

“Everything has gone to plan, these things take quite a long time.

“I’ve been training since November 2, that’s the longest pre-season I’ve had for over a decade now. I’m looking forward to a game of football.”

Be at AAMI Park in Round 1 on Monday 7 March, 7pm.
