Jennings heads south to the Storm as Lee and Johns both re-sign

Newly signed Melbourne Storm winger George Jennings

The Melbourne Storm have moved quickly to shore up some additional spots for 2021, signing George Jennings and retaining Brenko Lee and Cooper Johns.

Jennings, who most recently played for Parramatta, found a resurgence in form in 2020 following a New Zealand Warriors stint.

His final NRL game for the Eels culminated in a two-try effort for the blue and gold in their finals loss to Souths.

With the likelihood of both Suliasi Vunivalu and Josh Addo-Carr leaving, Jennings signing strengthens the Storm’s depleted wing stocks.

Jennings has a total of 15 tries from 35 games and has proven his worth as a first-grade winger.

Brenko Lee, who joined the Storm for 2020, has been a bit of a journeyman but seems to have found a home at the Storm.

His new deal for 2021 means he has another chance to hold down the centre spot and continue his good form.

Also re-signing is young halfback Cooper Johns, who got a taste of first-grade and is likely to have more in the near future.
