Melbourne Storm could be set to welcome back two Premiership players for this weekend’s trip to Auckland.

Kenny Bromwich and Felise Kaufusi are in contention to return to the line-up when Storm take on Wests Tigers on Saturday as part of the Auckland Double Header.

Bromwich has been named at lock in place of the injured Dale Finucane who has been ruled out for the next 4-6 weeks with a fractured thumb. Kaufusi is part of an eight-man extended bench that will be trimmed to six, 24-hours prior to kick-off.

After scoring a hat-trick for feeder side Easts Tigers on the weekend, Young Tonumaipea has been named as the replacement in the centres for Will Chambers who has been handed a two-game suspension.
