Team Announcement - Preliminary Final v Roosters

Head coach Craig Bellamy has named an unchanged lineup to face the Roosters in our Grand Final qualifier at the SCG on Saturday night.

Kenny Bromwich will play his 150th Storm and NRL game, joining his brother Jesse and 11 other players who have reached the same milestone for Melbourne.

Bromwich has played in every game this season and has played in at least 25 games in each of his last four seasons after making his debut in 2013. 

The additions to the extended bench are Joe Stimson, Sandor Earl, Marion Seve and Tino Fa'asuamaleaui.

Cam Smith requires one goal on Saturday night to become the first player in finals history to kick 100 goals.

He requires another six goals to break the all-time record for most goals in a season by a forward.

Former St George second-rower Harry Bath holds the record with 108, in 1958.

Smith is also closing in on Bath’s record for most points in a season by a forward. Bath’s 1958 total was 224 points. Smith’s 2019 tally stands at 214.
