Melbourne Storm has today agreed to terms with up and coming front rower Jordan McLean on a contract extension that will see him remain in Storm colours until the end of 2017.
McLean, 23, enjoyed a solid 2014 season with 16 first grade matches, finals experience and receiving the Most Improved player award at the Club’s 2014 Player of the Year night.
The hulking 115kg prop paved his way through Melbourne Storm’s development system, where he was a member the 2009 Storm NYC premiership team which also included Jesse Bromwich, Kevin Proctor and Matt Duffie.
Having overcome hamstring injuries early in his career, McLean made his NRL debut in 2013 and is primed to head into the coming season and add to his 30 first grade game tally.
Storm Football Director Frank Ponissi said the Club was thrilled to have McLean re-commit to the Club
“Jordan’s signing is terrific news for Melbourne Storm, it’s a great announcement for our Club three weeks out from the 2015 season starting,” Ponissi said.
“He brings plenty of size and power to our line-up and works well alongside our starting front-rowers.
“Jordan is a great young man who has shown he has great leadership potential. He works hard, has a great attitude and is on his way to becoming a consistent NRL front rower.”
McLean said he was pleased to re-commit to the Club for a further two seasons.
“I’m really happy to be staying at Melbourne Storm. I have a lot of good mates here and I’m really excited about the next two years,” McLean said.
