Storm set for blockbuster run home
Melbourne Storm is set for a big end to 2016 after the final six rounds of the NRL fixture were confirmed today.
Craig Bellamy’s side will face four top eight teams in the last six rounds. This includes a blockbuster finish to the year at AAMI Park against the Broncos on a Friday night, before facing current ladder leaders Cronulla the following Saturday to close out the home and away season.
The Broncos clash will be Storm’s only Friday night game at home for 2016 and promises to be a big night with the Club set to celebrate it’s links to multicultural Melbourne. While the Sharks meeting on Saturday 3 September is sure to be the hottest ticket in town with no AFL in action that weekend.
The run home also includes an away trip to Townsville to face the reigning premiers North Queensland on a Saturday night in Round 21, as well as visits to Canberra and Manly.
Storm will also host the popular Rabbitohs in Round 22 in a Saturday night fixture, kicking-off at 7:30pm in Women in League Round.
