Melbourne Storm have named an unchanged lineup for Friday night's clash against Wests Tigers at Leichhardt Oval following a convincing last start victory.

After thrashing the Penrith Panthers 52-10 in captain Cameron Smith's 300th game a fortnight ago, Craig Bellamy's side continued their strong recent run of form with a convincing 22-4 win over the St. George-Illawarra Dragons in Napier, New Zealand. 

Bellamy has named the same 17 that took the Dragons for Friday's game against Wests Tigers, although question marks remain around Jesse Bromwich, who is due to face the NRL Match Review Committee on Wednesday night after a biting allegation last week.

For Jason Taylor's side, the suspension of Martin Taupau and injury to Chris Lawrence forces a reshuffle in the forward pack — although they are boosted by the return of captain Robbie Farah and forward Ava Seumanufagai both from injury this week.

Dene Halatau moves into the back row to cover for Lawrence, with Sauaso Sue promoted into the starting side to cover for Taupau. Seumanufagai returns on the bench alongside young gun Manaia Cherrington, who together with Kyle Lovett, Brenden Santi and Jack Buchanan, form a five man interchange bench that will be trimmed to four on Friday.

Keith Galloway also returns to the starting side having come off the bench recently, and partners Aaron Woods in the front row, who will play his 100th NRL game this week.
