When one man goes down another teammate is there to take his place.

That is a philosophy that has driven this Storm team for years and is an important one heading into Friday night's clash against the Warriors. 

With Jesse Bromwich set to miss just his second game since 2011 due to a thumb injury, the onus is on the side's other forwards to step up.

Tim Glasby is the man named to replace Bromwich in the No.8 but it will be a team effort to replace a man who has won the past three Storm Player of the Year awards.

"Last week some of our younger blokes played a lot more time than they were used to and they will have to do that again until Jess comes back," Storm coach Craig Bellamy said.

"Hopefully they will be able to repeat their performance this week and if they do we will be in pretty good stead.

"There are a couple of this year that we expect them to play longer minutes if they need to. We've got guys like Jesse and Dale that play long periods of time.

"You know there is going to be a certain number of minutes that we need to make up."

Storm take on the Warriors at 6pm this Friday night at Mount Smart Stadium.
