Team List: Round 8 v Knights

Melbourne Storm coach Craig Bellamy has named an unchanged starting line-up for the round eight match against the Knights in Newcastle on Sunday.

After coming off late in the first half against the Warriors last night, centre Reimis Smith has been selected in the starting team but will need to pass the standard concussion protocols before he is cleared to take his position.

Tyran Wishart has been named on the interchange, swapping roles with Chris Lewis.

It will be Storm’s first game against the Knights in Newcastle since 2018.

Six Melbourne players are backing up from that match which Storm won 28-10

Kickoff is at 2pm.

Watch the action on Fox Sports or Kayo.
