Finding a place in the Melbourne Storm starting pack, Josh King’s game has gone from strength-to-strength and the forward will now stay at the Storm until the end of 2025.
King’s new two-year deal is a welcome boost for King and the club with all parties pleased with how the forward has responded since his move to the Storm.
A member of the club’s Emerging Leaders group this year, King played in all 25 NRL games last year and says that the decision to stay at the Storm was an easy one.
“I have been able to play my best footy while here in Melbourne and I hope to continue improving over the next few years,” King said.
“I enjoy living in Melbourne and being part of the Melbourne Storm club. I have built many great friendships with both players and staff. The Storm feels like home.”
“I am really happy to lock in a couple more years and look forward to seeing what we can achieve.”
The Storm have also made an addition for 2024, confirming the signing of current Sunshine Coast Falcons forward Lazarus Vaalepu.
Vaalepu will join the Storm’s developmental squad in 2024 before joining the top 30 in 2025.
