David Nofoaluma will become Storm player #224 when he makes his debut for Melbourne in the Women of League match against the Gold Coast Titans at AAMI Park on Friday night.
The Wests Tigers’ leading tryscorer is on loan with Storm for the remainder of the season and will be part of a new-look backline which is without Nick Meaney (concussion) and Justin Olam (Covid).
Tyran Wishart has been named at fullback for Meaney, who is expected to miss just the one game, with Grant Anderson moving from the wing to centre to replace Olam.
On the bench, Brandon Smith will return from his three-week suspension in the No.14 jersey, while Chris Lewis has swapped with Alec MacDonald who played in Friday night’s victory against the Warriors in Auckland.
Josh King has been named in the starting back, with Tui Kamikamica reverting to the bench.
State of Origin winger Xavier Coates is moving closer to making his return from a long-term ankle injury and has been included on the extended interchange list for the first time.
Friday night’s game will be Jahrome Hughes’ 100th in the Storm jersey.
