Team Announcement: Round 6 v Roosters

Late Mail: Dean Ieremia and Chris Lewis drop out of our squad. We will start 1-17, with Tui starting on the field and Nels on the bench. 

Craig Bellamy has named a near full-strength squad for Friday night's clash with the Roosters.

Brandon Smith will again start in the number 9 jersey, with Harry Grant to start on the bench.

While co-captain Dale Finucane will spend at least another week on the sidelines, Brenko Lee has been named on the extended bench after playing 80 minutes for 7 hit ups and 83 metres for feeder club Brisbane Tigers at the weekend.

If he remains in the final side it will be his first NRL game in 2021 after he suffered a hamstring injury during the pre-season.

Aaron Pene, Chris Lewis and Dean Ieremia round out the extended bench.

We have played the Roosters nine times since 2017, with Storm winning five games and the Roosters four.

Six of those nine games have been decided by three points or less, and three games were won in Golden Point. 

The two clubs have won the last four consecutive premierships and six of the last nine.
