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, twice more since that time.

It was an ominous display from the Melbourne Storm throughout 2017, finishing atop the ladder as minor premiers with three more wins than the second-placed Roosters. They overcame an early scare against Parramatta in the qualifying final, before strolling past Brisbane 30-0 in the preliminary final and crushing North Queensland 34-6 in the grand final to claim their third premiership.
