Felise Kaufusi joins Melbourne Storm for the 2014 NRL season adding considerable depth to Craig Bellamys forward stocks.

The 21-year old front-rower joins Storm following three seasons with the North Queensland Cowboys. In 2013 while pushing for a first-grade debut, Kaufusi made a significant contribution with the Northern Pride in the Queensland Cup, helping the Cowboys feeder team to a top of the table finish at the end of the home and away season.

Felise is the brother of former Storm forward Antonio, who played 78 games for the club between 2003 and 2008.
