Marika Koroibete cemented himself as a fan favourite of the purple faithful as the human highlight reel lived up to his reputation in 2016.

The Fijian Flyer electrified AAMI Park on countless occasions with eye-catching runs down the wing.

He took out Storm’s Try of the Year award courtesy of his superman effort against the Cowboys in Round 21, in what his 50th game in the purple jersey.

Koroibete ran for more metres than any other Storm player this season, at an average of 160 metres per game and also ranked second at the Club for line breaks and tries.

The speedster stepped up for his side when it mattered most during the Origin period, scoring six tries in six games as Melbourne won every game during that stretch.

He also played his 50th NRL game in a Round 1 win over the Dragons, where he scored a double including Storm’s first try of the season.
