The Melbourne Storm called for a rare Victorian junior, and the Dragons nominated their “best possible” side.
Brencolly of the Melbourne Storm Premiership Center is suffering from a hamstring retreat and will miss a trial match against Newcastle in Albury on Saturday.
Lee’s defeat was the acquisition of the young Dean Yermia, and the Victorian product was named on the wings for recruit Reymis Smith to move to the center and confront the Knights.
However, Storm’s boss says Lee will be a solid starter for the opening round of the NRL season against South Sydney Rabbits at AAMI Park on March 11.

Lee has a hamstring tension, but avoids tears.
This Saturday’s trial game, which was moved from Casey Field to Albury after the Knights refused to travel to Melbourne last week, will be Storm’s only complete hitout before Round 1.
“He’s definitely good for Round 1, but he just missed a bit of training last week or so,” said storm football boss Frank Ponissi.
“Because it was a trial, I didn’t mean to force him, so excluding him was a precaution.”
Yermia has won the wing position in this trial game, but Ponissi said he still has a race to fill the vacant wing spot of the departure Suliasi Vunivalu.
“The right wing is arguably the most competitive position on the team,” he said.
“There are four players competing for it with Dean.
“There are Isaac Lumelume, George Jennings and Reimis Smith, who are also trying to raise their hands.
“Dean blew his nose in front of others in this game, but it’s empty and very competitive in Round 1.”
Harry Grant also won the ninth jersey in the trial game ahead of Brandon Mychal getting off the bench.
Cameron Smith remains undecided about his future play, but will not return to the storm this year.
“Harry has the first crack here, but he knows what Brandon looks like,” Ponissi said.
“When he gets a chance, he will give it a decent crack.”
The Dragons, on the other hand, take the Charity Shield seriously, naming the “best possible” side of traditional clashes.

KFC Super Coach Analysis: The biggest issue here is that KFC Supercoach’s cheap Connor Watson seems to have won 13 jerseys, making him a de facto necessity given his price of $ 288,600. is. Interestingly, Cartman wasn’t named after the Knights, instead Phoenix Crossland started in half. In the case of Storm, Brenco Lee’s injury caused Raymis Smith to start from the center and Victorian Junior Dean Iremia to stand in the wing. As expected, while Harry Grant won the first hooking role and Brandon Mychal stood on the bench, Christian Welch was likely to start on the bench and of the KFC super coach who currently owns him. It hit 8.7%.

KFC Super Coach Analysis: With a weird twist, the new bunny newcomers Josh Mansour and Yale Arrow were both named only on the bench and set to start with Jackson Paul on the wings. Due to the lack of Jaydn Su’a’s name, either Keaon Koloamatangi or Jacob Host seems to have won the first role left vacant by Bayley Sironen, and Cameron Murray remains locked. There isn’t much surprise for the dragon, as either Adam Kroon or Jayden Sullivan is set to interrupt Corey Norman and start from half. Since Jackbird is set to play in the center, this trial may have only one backline spot on the grab.

KFC Super Coach Analysis: Both teams have identified many reported position switches. The biggest ones are Scott Drinkwater moving to full back, Hamiso to the center and Valentine Homes to the wing. Holmes is currently owned by 14.2% of KFC Super Coaches, many of whom are on his wings, so you’ll probably want to ride a jumping boat. Patrick Carrigan moved to Prop, Tevita Pangai Jr. won the starting roll on rock, and popular Jordan Riki replaced David Fifita as a Round One essential.
