Storm set for Halifax warm-up

Pa
Tuesday, January 22, 2013

LONDON - Melbourne Storm will have a contested training session with Championship club Halifax as part of their preparations for their World Club Challenge meeting with Leeds next month.

The NRL premiers are flying out of Melbourne on February 11 and will spend five days in London before setting up camp in the north of England.

Three years ago the Storm warmed up for their clash with the Rhinos with a match against London Broncos but this time will satisfy themselves with a stiff work-out against Halifax three days before they take on the Super League champions on Friday, February 22.

It will be the third time the two teams have met in the World Club Challenge, with honours even after a Leeds victory in 2008 and a defeat in 2010, both at Elland Road.

The Rhinos made the most of their opportunity to play at Headingley in last year's WCC, grinding out a 26-12 win over Manly Sea Eagles, to take the number of victories by Super League clubs to eight from 13 since the concept was revived in 2000.
