Team Announcement: Round 24 v Eels

Craig Bellamy has named his extended squad for our Saturday night clash with the Eels - an opportunity for Melbourne to claim a 20th straight win and create Australian rugby league history.

Jahrome Hughes is back in the number 7 jersey, with Nicho Hynes to start off the bench this week.

Dean Ieremia replaces George Jennings (PCL), Justin Olam returns and Brandon Smith will start in the number 9 jersey.
