Storm Premiership-winning centre Curtis Scott has put pen to paper on a new deal that will see him remain in Melbourne until at least the end of the 2021 season.
The 20-year-old is the latest young gun to re-commit his future to the Storm following the long-term re-signings of Brandon Smith, Josh Addo-Carr, Suliasi Vunivalu, Brodie Croft, Nelson Asofa-Solomona, Jahrome Hughes and Joe Stimson.
The re-signing of Scott caps off a remarkable year in which he became a Premiership player after just 15 NRL games. He earned selection in Craig Bellamy’s side midway through the 2017 season and held his spot at left-centre on the back of consistent performances and hard work.
In that time Scott has built a dynamic partnership alongside Josh Addo-Carr on Storm’s left edge. With both players now signed for the next three and four years respectively, Storm fans have plenty of reason to be excited for the future.
In January Scott was also selected in the New South Wales Emerging Origin squad, after representing the Blues at Under-20s and Under-18s level.
“We are delighted Curtis has chosen to continue his career with us in Melbourne,” Storm Football Director Frank Ponissi said.
“He has shown over his first two seasons that he has the ability to play at NRL level and the challenge is now for him to continue to improve. We are looking forward to helping Curtis reach his full potential at Storm.
“It is fantastic our young talent are committing to the Club for the long-term, our members and fans have reason to be excited.”
