Joe Chan is set to make his first-grade debut after being named in the second-row by Craig Bellamy to face the Broncos Thursday night.
Chan replaces Eli Katoa in the run-on side and will debut alongside Sua Fa'alogo and Jack Howarth.
Joining Melbourne from the Catalan Dragons at the beginning of the 2023 pre-season, the debutante is the 21-year-old son of Storm player #71 Alex Chan and has showcased his talents as a natural, youthful forward in the HostPlus Cup with the Brisbane Tigers.
Grant Anderson will make his return to the purple jersey for the first time since Round 14, covering Will Warbrick on the wing.
Storm's Jersey Flegg captain, Keagan Russell-Smith also drops away, with development players Cole Geyer and Tristan Powell rounding out the final squad.
