Melbourne Storm winger, Josh Addo-Carr, will join Canterbury-Bankstown Bulldogs after the completion of the 2021 season.
Storm General Manager Football, Frank Ponissi, said Addo-Carr informed the club of his decision to join the Bulldogs this week.
"Josh is an amazing talent on the field and brings his own unique enthusiasm and energy to our entire football club which makes him such an endeared character at Storm," Ponissi said.
We were delighted when he decided to see out his contract with us but knew he would make the decision to move back to Sydney at some stage. While we wish him all the best on the move, Josh is very focused on giving himself and his team mates the best chance to prepare for the 2021 season with Storm.Frank Ponissi
"He’s played almost every game in the four seasons with us so far and will no doubt become a 100-game player for Storm in 2021, which is a credit to him."
Addo-Carr said the decision to leave Storm was a difficult one which was only made to be closer to his family.
"I’m relieved to have finally sorted out my playing future and can now focus on making my last year with Storm another one to remember," Addo-Carr said.
I owe so much to this Club and have so many great friends and memories that have made me the person I am today.Josh Addo-Carr
"I now can’t wait to get back into training with the boys and playing at AAMI park in front of all our fans who didn’t get to see us this year."
Addo-Carr has played a total of 105 NRL games (9 Wests Tigers, 96 Storm) scoring 79 tries, has represented NSW on nine occasions and played in the Indigenous All Stars team twice.
