Join the Melbourne Storm in the fight to secure the minor premiership, as we celebrate retiring club legends Billy Slater and Ryan Hoffman. Be in your seats by 7.30pm for a stadium blackout featuring a special tribute to the retiring stars. There's plenty of reasons to knock off work early and get to AAMI Park with a curtain raiser and pre-game concert getting the celebrations underway from 5.00pm.
