Team news

Storm

Felise Kaufusi has entered an early plea and will serve a one-week ban for a careless high tackle. Chris Lewis moves from the interchange to replace him, with Tom Eisenhuth coming on to the bench.

Nicho Hynes will start at fullback and Brandon Smith at hooker, meaning Ryan Papenhuyzen and Harry Grant will start from the bench for at least another week. 

Sea Eagles

Josh Aloiai returns from suspension for his 100th NRL game, pushing Curtis Sironen back to the extended bench, while Taniela Paseka has regained his place in the front row after taking the early guilty plea to a tripping charge.

Toafofoa Sipley returns to the interchange after getting a start against the Sharks via a late swap with Paseka.

Key match-up

Morgan Harper v Justin Olam

If you don't turn up for a day standing opposite Olam ready for an almighty physical battle you are in for a shock. Equally as punishing in both attack and defence, Olam will provide Harper with a stern challenge in this one.
