The Melbourne Storm have signed veteran prop Nate Myles from the Manly Sea Eagles, effective immediately.

The Storm are currently suffering a crisis in their forwards stocks, with Jordan McLean ruled out for six weeks with a broken cheekbone and bench forward Christian Welch out for the season.

Adding to the club’s injury woes, Tim Glasby has been selected for his State of Origin debut, leaving the team short on both forwards and experience.

31-year-old Myles will provide both the Storm, with coach Craig Bellamy expected to get the best of the representative forward in the twilight of his career.

Myles is expected to be named in the Storm’s lineup for their Round 15 match against the North Queensland Cowboys.

  1. What a shame, just hope we don’t get injuries now, hopefully lussick back for manly by Rd 16. We short on forwards as is, hoping Barrett got something ipnhis sleeve in the way of good signing, we will be pushing with the knights now on whinge ha she most cash to spend for next year, shame there no big forward available that I can think of, and also hope they change there minds and keep Bretton Lawrence

  2. nate myles is not in good form and not the player he was , hes gone across the border those idiots pounced as they do everytime and over fill there cap just like 2 other clubs i can name isnt that right bennett , eels and politis

    • first up – can you even count? bennett, eels and politis is 3….
      just a tip – if you are trying to make a point. get the basics right, even in kindergarten they touch you how to count to 5.
      storm would have got him cheap for this year as manly would have been paying a fair whack of his contract for this year.

  3. If Belamy can get Myles to perform he will truly be the greatest coach of all time. Myles has been poor at club level or at least 4 seasons.

    • Myles was a poor signing but this year he stepped up especially in defence, he’s one of the best 1v1 tacklers in the game IMO. He may not get much metres but he sure does do a lot in defence which is one of the reasons why we’re doing well in defence this season. He’ll be missed but hopefully Perrett can step up which I’m a big fan of considering he has size and a offload.
