It’s a bit emotional: Koroibete
Marika Koroibete is determined to make his last game in the purple jersey one he will remember forever.
The Fijian Flyer set AAMI Park alight in his final appearance in front of the Storm faithful during Saturday’s Preliminary final.
Koroibete finished with a game-high 200 metres including a game-changing 70m dash up the left touchline that drew the Purple army up off the edge of their seats.
The scintillating winger is certainly not short of motivation to do the same in front of a sold-out crowd at ANZ Stadium this Sunday.
“I’m pretty pumped, excited like everyone else, looking forward to this week’s preparation ahead of Sunday’s game,” Koroibete said.
“I was thinking about that all of last week, it was my last game at AAMI Park wearing the purple and I was lucky enough to rip in on Saturday, come up with the win and get one more week with the boys.
“It is a very special moment for me, especially in my last year at the Club. It is a bit emotional but I’m pretty pumped up too for this week.”
Koroibete bursting down the wing will be a sight Storm fans will certainly miss.
However with one game still to go the opportunity is there for the No.5 to etch his name permanently into Storm folklore.
