Team Announcement - Round 6 v Roosters

Melbourne Storm has announced its squad to face the Sydney Roosters in a blockbuster Grand Final rematch under Friday night lights at AAMI Park.

Suliasi Vunivalu is back in the starting team following a one-week suspension, while Curtis Scott has been slated for a possible return.

Scott - who missed last week's game against the Cowboys with a virus and shoulder soreness -  has been added to the 8-man bench, along with Pat Kaufusi, Albie Vete and Billy Walters.

Vice-captain Dale Finucane will celebrate 100 games in the purple jersey on Friday night.

He joined the Storm in 2015 after three seasons with the Canterbury-Bankstown Bulldogs.
