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.
