Melbourne Storm Coach Craig Bellamy has named a 17-man squad for Monday night's blockbuster clash against the Canterbury Bulldogs at AAMI Park.
Several Storm players are feeling the effects of Monday night's bruising encounter against the Cowboys in Townsville and will be monitored throughout the week.
Centre Dane Nielsen suffered concussion on the stroke of half-time and didn't return to the field as a precaution, while Kevin Proctor copped a knock to the face that will require scans to determine the extent of the damage.
However the big worry for Storm's coaching staff is back-rower Sika Manu who twisted awkwardly in a tackle on the leg he broke two years ago. Manu had to be helped from the field early in the second-half and didn't return.
While Nielsen and Proctor have been named in the Round Four team, Manu has been omitted at this stage.
