Games of 2017: Thursday night lights
There is no bigger or better home opener than taking on the Brisbane Broncos under lights at AAMI Park!
Wayne Bennett’s boys will come to Melbourne on March 16 for a Round 3 Thursday night blockbuster.
Up to 11 representative players will take part from both teams meaning the contest with be a guaranteed 80 minutes of high-octane rugby league.
The Broncos got the chocolates on their last trip to Melbourne in Round 25 this year while Storm recorded a runaway 48-6 in the corresponding fixture at Suncorp Stadium earlier in the season.
Storm have won 10 of the last 12 meetings between the two teams.
It is a contest that always creates a fever-pitch atmosphere, with the past eight in Melbourne attracting an average crowd of nearly 20,000.
Two all-time great coaches, plenty of star quality and teams with plenty of history – this rivalry could not have too much more.
