Team Update: Round 25 v Eels

Storm halfback Jahrome Hughes will miss tomorrow night’s NRL final round clash with Parramatta due to calf tightness.

His place in the starting team will be taken by Cooper Johns who will line up in the purple jersey for the fourth time this season.

Cooper’s last appearance was in the 19-0 win against Penrith in Round 22.

Alec MacDonald and Jack Howarth also drop out of the squad of 22 named on Tuesday.
