Storm chairman open to Round Zero
Melbourne Storm chairman Bart Campbell has revealed the Club is open to playing the first game of the 2019 season in Los Angeles.
From early March it has been reported that South Sydney are interested in playing a home game in the USA next year and Storm could be the opposing side for the trailblazing 'round zero' concept.
Round Zero would see two teams playing a game for NRL points in the United States before the rest of the competition kicks off the season the following week.
There is still several details to sort through in order for the initiative to become reality however the Victorian side has expressed an interest to be involved.
"The club and the football department are really keen to see this game happen," Campbell told The Australian.
"We think it's a great initiative and we're willing and able to do whatever we can to make the game happen."
