Melbourne Storm has secured three key signatures by retaining back rower Ryan Hinchcliffe and props Jason Ryles and Siosaia Vave.
These re-signings are an integral part of the club’s retention strategy for next season and beyond, cementing Melbourne Storm’s playing roster having already secured several high profile players.
The club has also taken up the option on Mitch Garbutt and Kenneath Bromwich. Although opportunities in the first grade side have been limited, both players have been rewarded for their outstanding form for Storm’s feeder club Brisbane Easts and look forward to further opportunities next year in the NRL.
Melbourne Storm has also taken up the option to extend the contract of popular winger Sisa Waqa for the 2013 season. The Fijian flyer has continued to impress Bellamy with strong performances for Storm’s NSW Cup feeder team Cronulla, being named NRL 18th man several times this season.
In addition to these re-signings, Melbourne Storm has secured exciting Newcastle Knights NYC fullback / five- eighth Kurt Mann on a three-year deal.
