Another flying Fijian signs with Storm

DAILY TELEGRAPH
Monday, June 23, 2014

Update: 7:54PM MELBOURNE Storm's backline has been bolstered with the signing of exciting Fijian winger Marika Koroibete for the remainder of the season.

The Wests Tigers flyer has signed a deal that ties him to the club until the end of the 2016 season in a move that will see him link up with Storm's fellow Fijian international winger Sisa Waqa.

He has not reached those same heights since and this year has found himself languishing in the NSW Cup with limited opportunity at the Tigers.

But Storm coach Craig Bellamy is well known for getting the best out of players.

"An opportunity came up to bolster our depth to our outside backs and with limited chances at the Tigers this season, we saw Marika as an exciting talent who was coming off contract at the end of the season," Storm football manager Frank Ponissi said.

"Marika has displayed outstanding form in the NSW Cup, he is the leading tryscorer of the competition with 15 and we see his signing as adding strength to our roster."

He will join Storm's training squad shortly.

It comes hot on the heels of the signing of Wigan five-eighth Blake Green on a two-year deal.

The halves have been a problem area for Melbourne this year following the departure of Gareth Widdop.
