Hard work pays off

Storm prop Jesse Bromwich is looking forward to notching up his 100th NRL game on Friday night when Melbourne travel to Brisbane to face the Broncos.

Bromwich, who will reach the milestone four years after making his NRL debut, said it took plenty of hard work to cement his spot as a starting first-grade front-rower continually strive to improve.

“It feels like it’s gone really fast but at the same time quite slow,” Bromwich told the media on Monday.

“I guess that’s what the grind of the NRL does to you but I’m really looking forward to it and I know my family are really proud.

“The next however many games I play, I’m just always looking to improve.

“That’s what the club’s about, always doing our best at training and always trying to get better so hopefully we keep going that way.”

The 25-year-old made his first-grade debut for the Storm in Round 1, 2010 after coming through the club’s U20 system and has remained for the duration of his senior career to date.

“It’s something I’m really proud of,” he said.

“I love this club and to do that for this club is special to me and my family.”

While he is wary of what is likely to be a tough contest on Friday, Bromwich is more concerned with the progress of his own side.

“Corey Parker was outstanding in Origin so I expect him to be a handful this week,” Bromwich said.

"We’ve got a big challenge ahead of us but I think it’s something we really need to step up to and take on.

“On the weekend it felt like our attack clicked a bit more, so there are good signs coming to the end of the year.”
