Storm cleared to train in Melbourne ahead of the NRL season

The Melbourne Storm can train at their AAMI Park base as soon as tomorrow.

Victorian Premier Daniel Andrews on Monday gave the green light for all the state’s AFL and sole NRL team to train, allowing the Storm to leave their temporary training home in Albury as soon as tonight.

“Professional sport, after all it is a workplace, there’s been a lot of work between the AFL and the public health team and we have agreed to a set of arrangements that will allow training for AFL, for rugby league, for other professional sports to resume just before midnight tomorrow night,” Andrews said.

The Storm had been forced to train in the NSW border town last week and arrived back in Albury on Monday due to tough coronavirus restrictions which had been enforced by the Victorian government.
