Melbourne Storm fullback Nick Meaney will miss the round seven match against Manly in Sydney on Thursday after experiencing delayed concussion symptoms following the Easter Thursday win against the Sydney Roosters.
With the club’s top pointscorer for 2023 absent, Cameron Munster has been named in the No.1 jersey to face the Sea Eagles with Jonah Pezet returning to the starting 13 in the halves.
Pezet played three consecutive games in the NRL, filling in for Munster when he was unavailable due to injury in round three and for Jahrome Hughes who missed the wins against Wests Tigers and South Sydney due to suspension.
There are no other changes to the squad of 17 who downed the Roosters 28-8 at AAMI Park as Storm heads to Brookvale chasing a fourth consecutive victory.
Named on the extended bench are Grant Anderson, Aaron Pene, Tyran Wishart, Sua Fa’alogo and Jack Howarth.
Kickoff at 4 Pines Park will be at 8pm
