Melbourne Storm won't show their full hand for Saturday's rugby league trial game with the Bulldogs, captain Cameron Smith says.

The Hobart fixture acts as a preview of the NRL's round one at the Dogs' Belmore home base on March 3 but Smith has indicated his side will save their best for the competition proper.

"I'm sure we will keep a few things up our sleeves," said Smith, who confirmed he'll make his comeback at North Hobart Oval, where the side will still be missing star five-eighth Billy Slater.
