Melbourne Storm coach Craig Bellamy has named an unchanged 18-man squad for this weekend's round 20 NRL Telstra Premiership clash against the Sydney Roosters. The Storm (10-8) takes on the Roosters (8-9) at Olympic Park in Melbourne on Sunday, July 24th at 2:30pm.
After last weekend?s loss to the Brisbane Broncos at Suncorp Stadium, Bellamy has resisted making changes to the Storm squad, giving last weekend's squad a chance to redeem themselves after their second half effort.
The Roosters sit in 11th place on the Telstra Premiership Table after losing last weekend?s home game against the New Zealand Warriors 24-22. The Storm, in 4th position, comes off an away loss to the Broncos (28-15).

1. Billy Slater 2. Matt Geyer 3. Steve Bell 4. Matt King 5. Jake Webster 6. Cooper Cronk 7. Matt Orford 8. Robbie Kearns (c) 9. Cameron Smith 10. Ian Donnelly 11. David Kidwell 12. Ryan Hoffman 13. Dallas Johnson
