Melbourne Storm

Melbourne StormThe Melbourne Storm became the first rugby league club to represent Victoria when they were introduced to the NRL in 1998. Melbourne have been incredibly successful during their short history, winning the premiership in their second season and missing the finals just three times. A famous salary cap scandal saw them stripped of two premierships and three minor premierships won in the late 2000s, but the Storm have won the premiership, fairly, once more since that time.

The Storm continued their dominance of the NRL in 2016, claiming 19 wins from 24 matches and finishing atop the ladder. Victories over North Queensland and Canberra propelled them into the Grand Final, but they were unable to complete the journey, losing a 14-12 thriller to the Cronulla Sharks.
