RedZed Report: Round 5

The fortnightly RedZed Report, bringing you updates direct from Storm HQ about our injury list, club news and all things footy.

Injury Update

Harry Grant (medial) has been named in our 21-man squad to face the Bulldogs in round five, however he will need to get through training this week and "tick a few boxes" before he makes his return.

Co-captain Dale Finucane (calf) is progressing well but is expected to remain on the sidelines for at least another week.

Brenko Lee (calf) is eligible to be selected this week, while Jack Howarth (hamstring) and Cooper Johns (hamstring) are both 1-2 weeks away.

In further good news, Max King has started running again and is progressing well following off-season achilles surgery.

Round 5 Preview

The Bulldogs are searching for a first win in 2021. They haven't conceded less than 24 points in a match so far.

Melbourne players have made 19 line-breaks in four games this year. As for the Bulldogs, they've made just seven.

With Nick Meaney out with broken ribs, expect Corey Allan to return to the No.1 jersey for the Bulldogs.

Club Update

Storm fans and partners helped the club reach a fundraising target of $50,000 for the Good Friday Appeal last week, which was matched by major partner RedZed.

"Our members and fans are the most passionate in the country and they have shown tonight they are extremely generous too," Storm CEO Justin Rodski said on Friday night.

We have had great support from all of our partners but for RedZed to step up and match the funds we have raised tonight was extremely generous as well.
