Match: Storm v Sea Eagles
Round 19 -
Venue: AAMI Park, Melbourne
Rivals meet in Heritage Round
Another chapter in the storied rivalry between Storm and Manly will be penned on Saturday night.
Since the infamous Battle at Brookvale, matches against Manly have been fiercely fought. There is typically no love lost between the two sides and tempers flared in round 11 last year, with four sin bins and one send off.
The fifth-placed Sea Eagles have won five of their past six games and will be feeling confident after a thumping win over the Eels in round 18.
Storm welcome back Origin stars Cameron Munster, Felise Kaufusi, Josh Addo-Carr, Will Chambers and Christian Welch this week, so head coach Craig Bellamy will have no lack of class and experience to choose from.
Expect another brutal clash in Heritage Round as the club celebrates milestones for our 1999 and 2009 Grand Final teams.
The U20s Thunderbolts will play a curtain raiser against the U20s Manly Sea Eagles on Gosch's Paddock before the game, with kick-off at 5pm.
Beanies for Brain Cancer
The annual NRL Beanies for Brain Cancer Round is back this weekend.
The playing squads for both teams will run out wearing Mark Hughes Foundation beanies, while fans are encouraged to buy beanies at the stadium on game day, at Lowes and IGA stores or online here.
All funds raised from the sale of the beanies will be donated to the foundation, supporting brain cancer research and ultimately better outcomes for patients.
