Melbourne Storm has sent its best wishes to feeder team Brisbane Easts as the Tigers’ prepare for Sunday’s Queensland Cup Grand Final against Northern Pride.
Storm will be well represented on Sunday, with seven of its current NRL squad set to line-up for the Tigers – Kenny Bromwich, Hymel Hunt, Felise Kaufusi, Richie Kennar, Cameron Munster, Mitch Garbutt and Cody Walker.
Ironically, they will face-off against another future Storm player in Shaun Nona, who has been signed by Melbourne for the next two years and will start at No.6 for the Pride at Suncorp Stadium.
Bromwich, named 18th man for New Zealand earlier this year but was hit with injury late in the season, Hunt, Kaufusi, Kennar and Munster all remain contracted to Storm for 2015.
Hunt, Kaufusi and Kennar are yet to make their debut for Storm but will likely get their chance early next year.
