The flying Fijian has been a revelation for Melbourne in 2015, scoring seven tries in the opening 11 matches of the season. In doing so the 22-year old has quickly become one of the most exciting and damaging wingers in the competition.
Koroibete's defensive performances have also complimented his attacking exploits, with his fearless attitude when returning the ball back to the defensive line ranking him number one at Storm for metres gained so far this season.
Scans on Monday revealed the full extent of the injury, forcing the Fijian international to miss his first set of games since making his Storm debut in Round 18 last year.
