Melbourne Storm has signed experienced front-rower Jack Afamasaga to its NRL squad for the remainder of the 2011 season.
Afamasaga’s signing will add depth to Storm’s front-rowers group.
Storm GM Football Operations, Frank Ponissi, said the signing of Afamasaga was unexpected, but a very welcome addition to Storm’s playing roster.
“Jack literally knocked on our door looking for an opportunity after moving to Geelong to live with his partner’s family,” said Ponissi.
“We weren’t really in the market for any additional players, but the enquiry came at an opportune time just prior to the 30 June deadline and we are very pleased to have him on board for the remainder of the 2011 season.”
