Storm land in Townsville

Melbourne Storm have completed their trip north ahead of their clash with the Cowboys on Friday night.

The players will fine-tune their preparations at tomorrow’s Captain’s Run.

Storm have been focusing on their recovery this week on the track as they are coming off a five-day turnaround for the game.

The Cowboys will be desperate for a win to maintain touching distance with the top four while Storm will be looking to maintain their place atop the NRL ladder.

Kick-off on Friday will be at 7.50pm, with fans in Melbourne able to view the game via free-to-air on Channel GEM.
