Waqa returns to train with Storm
A favourite Fijian son has returned with Sisa Waqa returning to training with Melbourne.
Waqa has returned to Australia after suffering a broken jaw whilst playing for French rugby union club FC Grenoble.
The 30-year-old will spend time training with the NRL squad before a decision is made on whether to sign him to a playing contract before the June 30 deadline.
Storm Football Director Frank Ponissi said Waqa would be monitored over the coming weeks.
“He got injured just before Christmas and moved back about three weeks ago,” Ponissi told rlwc12017.com.
“We will have a look at him over the next few weeks and if he comes up all right we will sign him for the rest of the season.
“He is still a fair way off playing because he has been inactive for a while but he is showing good signs. This is his second week of training and we will probably give it another two weeks before we make a call.
