Melbourne playmaker Cameron Munster has been named to start in Friday's preliminary final against the Raiders, despite sporting a heavily strapped right knee at training on Monday. The star Queenslander left the field with a knee injury in the Storm's qualifying final win over Parramatta, and spent the ensuing days in a brace having suffered two MCL sprains to the same knee already this season. Meanwhile, Dale Finucane's calf injury will be closely monitored all week after coach Craig Bellamy named the NSW Blues forward on his extended bench ahead of his side's sixth-straight NRL preliminary final. Finucane hasn't played since suffering the injury against the Sydney Roosters in round 14. Bellamy has also named Tom Eisenhuth on the bench in place of Chris Lewis who drops off.
