Team Announcement: Round 2 v Eels

Craig Bellamy has named an unchanged starting 13 for our round two clash with the Eels at Bankwest Stadium on Thursday night.

Nicho Hynes, Darryn Schonig, Cooper Johns and Dean Ieremia have been added to the extended bench. 

Co-captain Jesse Bromwich will become the sixth player - and first front-rower - to play 250 games for Melbourne Storm.

He joins Cameron Smith (430), Cooper Cronk (323), Billy Slater (319), Ryan Hoffman (265), Matt Geyer (262).

Jesse made his debut in round one of the 2010 season and until last year's shortened fixture he had played at least 20 matches in every season since 2011.

Brenko Lee is still sidelined with a calf injury and is expected to return by round four.
