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. Since then, Melbourne have become the dominating force in the NRL, winning their second Premiership in 2007 and making two more Grand Finals in 2006 and 2008.
