Billy is back!
The long wait is over for Storm fans with the superstar fullback officially named in Craig Bellamy’s final 17-man squad. Click here to see the full squad.
It has been 296 days, Round 10 last season, since Slater last pulled on a Storm jersey.
The last time he stepped foot on a rugby league field was at the MCG for Origin II, almost nine months ago.
But all that time means little now as Slater gets set to step foot onto AAMI Park once again.
