Melbourne Storm

Melbourne StormThe Melbourne Storm became the first rugby league club to represent Victoria when they were introduced to the NRL in 1998. It only took a year for the Storm to win their first Premiership with victory against the Dragons in front of over 100,000 people at Stadium Australia. The Storm became a dominating force in the mid-2000s, however, they were stripped of their 2007 and 2009 Premierships, as well as three Minor Premierships, after the NRL uncovered a series of salary cap breaches in 2010. The breaches occurred over the course of five years, and amounted to at least $1.7 million.

In 2016, the Storm finished the regular season as minor premiers and reached the grand final. They would go on to lose a thrilling grand final 14-12 to the Cronulla Sharks.
