One of the few Victorian-based locals to have a crack for the Melbourne Storm, Richie Kennar will stay on with the club after re-signing for the 2016 season.
The talented and versatile utility back became just the third local Victorian to play first-grade when he made his debut earlier this year.
With 6 games to his name so far, Kennar is keen to continue that and work hard to cement a spot in the Storm back-line.
An U18’s and U20’s player with the Storm, Kennar has progressed well and the club themselves were ecstatic to see him come through the ranks and shine, as well as his re-signing.
â€œHaving come through the junior league and representative system in Melbourne, we were absolutely delighted to see Richie make his NRL debut this season,” said the Storm’s Director of Football, Frank Ponissi.
â€œWhile Richie was pleased to play six NRL games for the Club in 2015, he has indicated he is extremely determined to consolidate a permanent position next season.â€
