Family bond sees Kenny stay
Playing alongside his brother is not the only reason Storm feels like family for Kenny Bromwich.
Bromwich signed a new deal to remain with the Club for the next three years.
This will be his ninth year in Melbourne since making the move from Auckland to join Storm’s development program.
It proved to be a life-changing decision that has now seen him play 74 games in the purple jersey.
“I’m really happy, I get to be here and play alongside all the boys and get to stay with my family,” Bromwich said.
“I really wanted to stay at this Club and didn’t really look too much elsewhere.
“The Club has been really good to me, they’ve given me everything that I’ve got so far.
“I wouldn’t be here without the Club. My family is all here as well and they all love the Melbourne Storm as well so to be here for a few more years is a massive bonus for me.”
Kenny admits he did have a conversation with Jesse about where he saw his future but did not try to influence his younger brother’s decision to also re-sign.
“I told him that (staying) is what I would like to do,” Bromwich said.
“He is happy to keep playing with me as well but in saying that, that is pretty much all I said to him.”
“I didn’t want to say too much to him and try to make his mind up for him. He made his decision (to re-sign) so I’m really happy about that too.”
