Melbourne this week travel to Auckland to take on the Warriors looking to make it two wins from two games following their victory over the second-placed Broncos last Friday.
The Warriors are coming off a bye last round and will be looking to bounce back after their narrow two point loss to the Wests Tigers in Round 11.
Storm coach Craig Bellamy has named an unchanged 17 to the side that defeated Brisbane.
The two sides met just four rounds ago on ANZAC Day where Storm prevailed 32-14. Highly fancied Warrior halfback Shaun Johnson, a late withdrawal on that night will take his place at number seven on Sunday.
