Team announcement: Round 20 v Roosters

Melbourne Storm returns to the park in Round 20 following last weekend’s bye for a crucial clash with the Roosters at the Sydney Cricket Ground. 

Xavier Coates, Cameron Munster and Harry Grant have been named to back-up from their Wednesday night Origin appearances, while Tui Kamikamica also returns to the starting line-up after a solid performance off the bench in Round 18. 

Tariq Sims reverts to the interchange bench and will be joined by Tyran Wishart, Bronson Garlick and Tom Eisenhuth who looks to celebrate his 50th NRL game. 

The milestone celebrations don’t stop there, with both Reimis Smith and Justin Olam taking the field for their 100th NRL matches on Saturday night.
