Lumelume to start, Kamikamica benched

Fiji Bati centre Isaac Lumelume will start for the Melbourne Storm against the Manly Sea Eagles in the qualifying final of the Telstra Premiership this week.

Lumelume was instrumental in scoring a try for his Storm in their shocking 22-10 defeat to the Parramatta Eels in Round 24. 

Another Fiji international Tui Kamikamica has also been named in the team but will come off the bench.

Meanwhile, Cameron Munster and George Jennings are both set to return while Josh Addo-Carr will miss another week due to a hamstring injury.

Brandon Smith has been named to start at hooker, with Harry Grant to play off the bench.

Aaron Pene, Tom Eisenhuth, Chris Lewis and Marion Seve have been included in the extended squad.

Nicho Hynes looms as Munster's replacement if the Maroons and Test five-eighth is a late withdrawal.

George Jennings sustained a knee injury and is also required a final clearance to join returning centre Reimis Smith on the right edge.

The Storm will take on the Sea eagles at 9.50 pm on Friday.
