MELBOURNE Storm players wore white armbands in tribute to club member Tamara Farrell, who was killed last month in her Ballarat home.
The 31-year-old's body was found burnt and dumped more than 300 kilometres away in Gippsland. A man known to Ms Farrell was charged with her murder.
Storm players made the gesture in their season opening 10-point win against Brisbane Broncos at AAMI Park in Melbourne on Thursday night.
