Storm detail 2005 draw

With most of the senior list due to start training on Monday (November 15), their fitness focus will be geared towards two pre-season games before the season proper.

Coach Craig Bellamy will be back from Tri-Nation Tour duties by early December to lead an excited bunch into early trial games.

The first, at Carrara against the Brisbane Broncos on (February 19, 2005) followed by a Friday hit-out against the North Queensland Cowboys in Cairns.

As for Melbourne?s main draw, they will tackle the Newcastle Knights in the opener (March 11-13, 2005), the Broncos in Round 4 and the defending champ?s the Bulldogs in Round 11, all these vital early games to be played at Olympic Park.

Another bonus for the Storm will be the timing of the byes?. The first ticking over in Round 9, the second not until Round 24 two weeks before the finals.
