Melbourne Storm Coach Craig Bellamy has named a near full strength line-up for his side’s final Trial match of the pre-season against the Bulldogs on Saturday afternoon.

Bellamy, will take a 24-man squad to Hobart with thirteen players from last year’s Grand Final set to take the field this weekend.

The game between two of the top eight contenders from last season, will see rugby league return to Tasmania for the first time in five years.

Internationals Cameron Smith, Cooper Cronk, Jesse Bromwich and Tohu Harris will all make their first appearances in 2017.

After starring in the fullback role in 2016, Cameron Munster will partner Cooper Cronk in the halves against the Bulldogs, while the number one jersey will be filled by Young Tonumaipea.

Former Bulldog Dale Finucane will feature in the match after overcoming a knee injury he picked up before Christmas.
