Jason Ryles

In a boost for the Melbourne Storm’s forward pack, veteran prop Jason Ryles has re-signed with the club for a further year – after his solid start in Melbourne colours this season.

The deal will see Ryles remain at the club until the end of the 2013 season, with the former representative prop putting in some strong performances for the Storm, since making his debut in Rd 2 of this season.

With Ryles in good form, he has been able to act as a mentor to younger props like the Bromwich brothers, Jesse and Kenneath, as well as for other younger forwards coming through the ranks.

Whether or not Ryles feels his body can last beyond 2013, remains to be seen.

  1. Great to see another “reject” blossom at Storm. Which is just as well b/c the rest of the comp are feeding off the club’s products: Cronk was off to the Titans before they financially imploded, NZ internationals Adam Blair (gone) and Sika Manu (going) and now & QLD State of Origin rep Dane Nielsen.

    Fair dinkum the NRL should be paying the Storm for developing all the talent.

  2. It’s inevitable that players from any team that are developed from a young age will have to leave, and the Storm in the past couple of years have unfortunately, seen that happen first hand.
    Happens across the board to all teams, though.
