Member thank you round

This season we've ticked over 27,000 members, setting a new all-time membership record. Around 18,000 of you live in Melbourne, and given the past two seasons have seen very few games played at home, that figure is a testament to the unwavering loyalty of our supporters.

Because the majority of you can't be at the game, we're saying thank you in as many visible ways as we can: the huge jersey featuring all of our Victorian members' names will be on display in the sheds, five lucky members have been chosen at random to be displayed on each players' locker and our junior members have the chance to have their very own colouring-in or drawing displayed in the rooms too.

Fus 150

Felise Kaufusi will suit up for his 150th NRL game this weekend - a massive milestone for one of our leaders.

The Queenslander made his debut in round one of 2015 and has played 20-plus NRL matches in each of his last five seasons on top of 12 State of Origin matches for the Maroons, four Tests for Australia and three for Tonga.

Team news


Jahrome Hughes (concussion) and Tui Kamikamica (calf) have trained with the side this week with Kamikamica a chance to be a late inclusion after being listed as 18th man.

Hughes replaces Nicho Hynes at halfback, forcing the utility to the interchange.

Brandon Smith and Justin Olam are also back after they were rested in round 23.


Blake Ferguson (calf) has been named to return after overcoming a calf injury.

Ferguson's return is timely given Maika Sivo's year came to an abrupt end following confirmation he ruptured his ACL last week. 

Ray Stone replaces Will Smith on the bench which could see the forward utility share hooking duties with Joey Lussick.

The Eels have won two of their past three games against the Storm.

Key match-up

Cameron Munster v Dylan Brown

Munster produced a majestic second 40 against the Raiders last week, which laid the foundation for yet another Melbourne win. A proven big-game performer, Munster would love nothing better than putting one over a side they could well meet again during the finals. Brown should have taken plenty of confidence out of the Cowboys game and his speed and swerve will keep the Storm defence on its toes.
