Team Update - Round 13 v Bulldogs

Dale Finucane has been omitted from the game day 19 this week and Cooper Johns also drops out of the squad of 21 named on Tuesday. Dale has been playing with some niggling injuries and couldn't make it through captain's run.

In the absence of his co-vice captain and skipper Cameron Smith (AC joint), Jesse Bromwich will be acting captain. 

Original story follows:

Ryan Papenhuyzen will be rested this weekend, giving Nicho Hynes a chance to play extra minutes in the number 1 jersey during our round 13 clash with the Bulldogs.

Craig Bellamy has made three changes to the starting side, with two new faces on the bench.

With skipper Cameron Smith sidelined (AC joint), Brandon Smith will start at number 9, while Justin Olam returns after missing round 12 with an ankle injury, replacing Marion Seve who has had plastic surgery on an ear injury this week.

Ryley Jacks and Albert Vete have been added to the bench.

A milestone match for Jahrome Hughes, who will celebrate 50 Storm games (and 52 NRL games).

In the absence of Cam Smith, Jesse Bromwich and Dale Finucane will be co captains.
