Tevita Pangai-Junior signature is one of the hottest signatures to be secured in the NRL right now, with yet another club wanting to enter the race for the prop.
When Kasiano first signed on at the Storm, many tipped him to resurrect his career and do big things for the club, but he didn’t live up to that expectation.
Kasiano played 14 games for the Storm in 2018 and only averaged 23 minutes per match, failing to make the impact on the squad coach Craig Bellamy was hoping he could make.
At the age of 28, it seems Kasiano’s best playing years in the NRL could be behind him as he looks to be offloaded to make way for a younger, upcoming forward.
Pangai-Junior is a keen, lean, fit machine who has a bright future ahead of him if he continues with the current form he is in.
The 22-year old is yet to re-sign with the Brisbane Broncos, who are desperately trying to keep him around, meanwhile other rival clubs are beginning to circle just like sharks circling fish.
The word on the street is Pangai-Junior is most likely to stay at Brisbane, but massive offers from other clubs must be very tempting for the young star, as he is still yet to commit to the club.
Melbourne’s case will be boosted by the fact super coach Craig Bellamy has a brilliant reputation for turning already good forwards into great ones.
This will give Pangai-Junior much to consider when he finally sits down and inks his signature for 2019 and beyond.
