An exciting Storm side will take to the field for the next week’s 2017 NRL Auckland Nines tournament at Eden Park.
Melbourne have today named their 19-man squad for the blockbuster pre-season tournament and there is plenty for the purple faithful to be excited about.
A blend of youth and experience will come together in a team that will be led by co-captains Young Tonumaipea and Kenny Bromwich. Bromwich will be Melbourne’s most experienced player with 72 NRL games under his belt.
Speedy winger Josh Addo-Carr will be one of four new Storm recruits set to make their first appearance in purple while established NRL players Cameron Munster, Cheyse Blair, Felise Kaufusi and Tim Glasby will also feature in the fast-paced showpiece.
