Storm name 18-man squad to face Eels
Melbourne Storm coach Craig Bellamy has named an 18-man squad for this Friday's Round 23 clash against the Parramatta Eels. The game will be played at Olympic Park in Melbourne from 7:30pm.
After Sunday's 14-6 win over the Brisbane Broncos, Storm coach Craig Bellamy has made several changes to the line-up.
Matt King's wrist injury gives Anthony Quinn a chance in the centre, while Steve Turner's season-ending knee injury gives Will Chambers another chance in first-grade.
Michael Crocker also makes his long-awaited return to first-grade from the bench after playing last weekend for Storm feeder team Brisbane Norths.
