Season Review: Dale Finucane

After three previous Grand Final attempts, 2017 finally saw Dale Finucane get the premiership ring he so richly deserved.

His try and jubilant celebration in the second half of that Premiership win remains one of the most iconic moments of the season.

This year Finucane further built his reputation as one of the toughest players in the competition. The Club made the decision to rest him for one game on the eve of the finals in what was only the second game he has missed since joining Storm three years ago.

The ultimate team player, Finucane ranks second at Melbourne for support and decoy runs.

He also averaged just over 60 minutes per game this season, more than any other Storm prop, which proved the incredible work ethic he shows week in and week out.

Over the last three seasons Finucane has built himself into one of the leaders of the Storm pack and is a member of the Club’s senior leadership after being promoted at the start of the season. This made his decision to re-sign for the next four years all the more important.

He was knocking down on the door of Origin selection this year having been named 18th man for NSW in Game III, meaning he should be well and truly breaking that door down by now.
