Team List: Round 4 v Bulldogs

Harry Grant and Xavier Coates are set to return to the Storm starting team to face the Canterbury Bulldogs this Sunday at AAMI Park.

Grant has been named in the No. 9 jersey with Brandon Smith reverting to an interchange role. It will be the first time this year the dynamic duo will both appear after injuries and illness kept the pair apart in the opening rounds.

Coates is back on the wing in place of Nick Meaney after missing out last week due to hamstring tightness. Having scored in both Rounds 1 and 2, Coates is a shoo-in to continue the streak on Sunday.

After an impressive Round 3, laying down two of Storm's five tries, Meaney steps back onto the interchange in the No.20 jersey.

Tyran Wishart will make a comeback onto the extended bench after a brief stint away due to being a household contact of Grant and missing Round 3.

Kickoff is at 4.05pm following the curtain-raiser between the Victorian Thunderbolts and Bulldogs in the Jersey Flegg under-21s competition at 2pm on Gosch's Paddock.

Tickets are available here.
