The Vodafone Warriors will take on Melbourne as selected in tonight's Homecoming Series clash at Mount Smart Stadium (8.00pm kick-off).
Interim head coach Stacey Jones has confirmed half Daejarn Asi as 18th man with middle forward Tom Ale 19th.
The final selection means Vodafone Warrior #265 will make just his second NRL appearance from the interchange.
Also on the bench are hooker Freddy Lussick, prop Bunty Afoa and back rower Eliesa Katoa. Afoa is the only player to have appeared in all 18 matches for the Vodafone Warriors so far.
The three players omitted from the extended squad 24 hours out from kick-off were halfback Ronald Volkman, centre Viliami Vailea and hooker Taniela Otukolo.
The Vodafone Warriors have lost their last 12 contests with the Storm (four at Mount Smart Stadium).

Their last success in 2015 was one of the most memorable in the club’s history, the 28-14 victory in Auckland which featured Nathan Friend’s upside-down-between-the-legs offload which led to an astonishing Tuimoala Lolohea try.
This will be the 49th clash between the clubs with Melbourne holding a 30-16 advantage with two draws. In 22 matches at Mount Smart Stadium, the ledger favours the Storm 13-9.
