Melbourne skipper Smith looked like he could be auditioning for a role in the next wolverine movie as he sported a beard.

Storm players returned to AAMI Park on Monday for the first time in more than a month, forced to queue on taped marks on the ground before being temperature tested in their first encounter with the new NRL biosecurity measures. Star winger Josh Addo-Carr was first to arrive after last week’s breaches of social distancing laws while in NSW.

The club was given an exemption by the Victorian government to hold its education day at its headquarters.

However, the state of emergency in place prevents the team training at its home ground, forcing the Storm across the border into NSW.

While the Storm await official sign-off from the NSW government on their Albury training facilities, Donaghy said that looking further ahead they were poised to play a number of game interstate when the season resumed.

“We don’t (expect to be playing at home),” said Donaghy, due to Victoria’s tighter restrictions.

“I’m accepting of the fact that probably for the first little period of time, we’ll be playing a few away games.

“The competition structure hasn’t been confirmed but I would suspect that would be the case.”
