Season Review: Justin Olam

History was made in 2019 as Justin Olam became only the second player from Papua New Guinea to wear the purple jersey.

Olam followed in the footsteps of Club legend Marcus Bai when he made his Storm debut in Round 9 against the Dragons.

The 24-year-old made three appearances for the year, two at centre and played his final game on the wing against the Panthers.

He was very unlucky not to score a maiden NRL try after having three efforts disallowed on video review this season.

Having re-signed with Storm for a further two years, Olam now has a chance to carve out his own PNG legacy in Melbourne.
