The Melbourne Storm have managed to retain two more players, one a veteran prop, and the other a rookie half – with both Bryan Norrie and Benjamin Hampton re-signing with the club for 1 and 2 years respectively.
Norrie made the decision to take up the option in his favour to remain with the club, whilst Hampton, a young QLD representative at U15’s, 16’s and 18’s level, decided to stick around for a further two seasons.
Frank Ponissi, the General Manager of Football Operations at the Storm, confirmed the re-signing of both Norrie and Hampton.
â€œRetention has been a focus for the club and we are pleased to add Bryan and Ben to the list of our recent key re-signings,â€ Ponissi said.
â€œNoz brings great value to the club off the field just as he does with his playing ability, which was an important part of why we wanted to retain him.
â€œEqually important, Ben has been earmarked as a future NRL player and his re-signing allows us to boost our stocks in the halves. The next two years allows the club to continue to develop him into a first grade player,â€ Ponissi said.
