The Warriors will face a strong Melbourne side in Hamilton tonight in the first of three trial matches before their National Rugby League season starts on the 14th of March in Auckland.
The Storm has five internationals in their squad including, Kiwis Sika Manu and Wairangi Koopu.
The Warriors coach Ivan Cleary says it's good to be starting against last year's beaten grand Finalists and the 2007 champions.
