Storm snub World Club Challenge

Melbourne have knocked back an invitation to enter the World Club Challenge in January.

CEO Dave Donaghy said on Monday that the club prioritised the preparation of the 2017 NRL season over another gruelling trip to England for a number of their Storm stars.

“We have committed to playing two trial matches in Australia which we believe will serve as a better lead-in for the team ahead of next year’s opening round,” Donaghy said.
