Melbourne Storm are entering the era of LWCS – life without Cameron Smith. The 430-game veteran and future Immortal won’t be running out for the Storm for the first time since 2002 after announcing his retirement on the eve of the season. It’s obviously a massive loss but we’re not about to write off Craig Bellamy’s well-drilled side.

Melbourne Storm

Bellamy always finds a way to get the best out of his players and this season should be no exception. Sure Smith is gone but his namesake Brandon Smith comes into the starting side at hooker following a knee injury to Maroons rake Harry Grant.

Along with Smith, premiership heroes Suliasi Vunivalu, Tino Fa’asuamaleaui, Paul Momirovski, Albert Vete, Ricky Leutele and Sandor Earl have all left the club. Reimis Smith (Bulldogs) and George Jennings (Eels) are the new signings. Expect the Storm to be in the thick of the finals and pushing hard for their fifth premiership.

Melbourne Storm history

The Storm were founded in 1997 and entered the NRL in 1998. Since their inception, they have won premierships in 1999, 2012, 2017 and 2020. The team’s worst season was in 2010, when they were awarded their only wooden spoon.

They will be chasing back-to-back titles after defeating Penrith in last year’s grand final to claim their fourth NRL premiership. Craig Bellamy has been coaching the squad since 2003. The Storm play their home games at AAMI Park.
