Melbourne Storm had a solid NRL season by their lofty standards last year. They finished first on the ladder, securing their fourth minor premiership. They then stumbled a little before making it to the preliminary finals, with the Roosters ending their premiership dreams for 2019.
Now, Melbourne are looking to keep up the good work and make it all the way to the grand final for the 2020 NRL season.
Will Chambers and Curtis Scott are out, but the squad stands strong with talented players like Cameron Smith, Cameron Munster and Ryan Papenhuyzen, to name a few. Long-time coach Craig Bellamy should have no trouble helping the team find the motivation to improve on its 2019 results.
