Melbourne Storm coach Craig Bellamy has named an unchanged squad of 22 for the Women in League Round match against the Warriors in Auckland on Friday night.
In a first for this season, the run-on 13 from Saturday night’s loss to South Sydney has been retained and the bench also remains unaltered as Storm look to turn around a run of four straight defeats.
Storm will once again defend the Michael Moore Trophy, named in honour of the club’s former football manager who passed away in Auckland in 2000.
Melbourne has held the trophy since 2016 – a run of 12 consecutive matches.
This will be Storm’s first visit to Mt Smart Stadium since 2019 and the second game the Warriors have played at their home ground since returning from their Covid-enforced stay in Australia.
