Next stop on the Storm tour
Melbourne Storm have resembled the globetrotters of rugby league in 2017, as they prepare to play in their sixth different state this season.
The Club is preparing to play at the Adelaide Oval this Saturday night against the Roosters.
It will be another region the playing group can tick of the bucket list having already visited New South Wales, Queensland, Western Australia and Tasmania.
They may have chalked up the frequent flyer miles this season but the players are happy to be able to spread the Storm brand of football around Australia.
“It is good that we get to spread the game a bit, they don’t get much rugby league there,” Storm prop Kenny Bromwich said.
“It is a pretty big game to go down there and have such an occasion. I think they will be pretty happy to have both teams down there.
“I am happy that they are taking their game there though because I love playing at home.”
Adelaide locals will be treated to a top-of-the-table clash with Storm taking on the second-placed Roosters.
Sydney are coming off a commanding 40-18 win over Wests Tigers last week and will be full of confidence after losing just one of their last five games.
“They’ve been looking good all year actually, they’ve got some strike power all over the field,” Bromwich said.
“They’ve got some big, fast outside backs and their forward are really aggressive and run really hard so we are going to have to play well against them.
“There are a few guys in there who are knocking on the door to play Origin. They’ve also picked up a few off-season buys who have fit in well to their team and playing some good footy.”
