Storm name Big Three for Leeds game

6:09 pm on 10 February 2013

The Melbourne Storm's big guns will all be firing at their World Club Challenge.

Star trio Billy Slater, Cameron Smith and Cooper Cronk have overcome injury concerns to be named in a 21-man squad.

Smith is fine to tour despite breaking his nose in the NRL All Stars clash in Brisbane on Saturday night, a match Slater and Cronk skipped citing injuries.

Slater, who pulled out of the All Stars game with ankle and shoulder complaints, proved his fitness in the Storm's 40-8 trial defeat to Canberra on Saturday - the same night the All Stars match was played - while Cronk has sufficiently recovered from a back injury to travel to England on Monday.

The NRL Premiers will take on English champions Leeds on February 22.
