Storm name Slater’s replacement

The footy is finally back!

Melbourne Storm have named their 21-man squad for the season opener against the Bulldogs in Perth.

Cameron Munster has been selected at fullback in place of Billy Slater who will miss the game as a precaution due to a shoulder complaint sustained in the World Club Challenge.

Ryley Jacks shifts into five-eighth as part of a new-look halves pairing that also includes Brodie Croft who has earned the No.7 jersey for Round 1.

Storm fans can watch the game LIVE on Fox League from 9pm (AEDT). The team will then play its first home game next Saturday night at AAMI Park against Wests Tigers. Click here to book your seats!
