Jesse Bromwich has reflected on his growth since 2012 as the Club celebrates the 10-year anniversary of its premiership win this weekend.
The now Storm captain shared his excitement on reuniting with his former 2012 teammates at the team’s Premiership reunion on Friday.
“Geez time just flies, doesn't it? It's going to be really good to see a lot of those faces. I haven't seen them for a long time I'm really looking forward to it,” Bromwich said.
“I was just a young front-rower. Just really quiet.
“We had all the superstars in the team. The big three, back then, were at the height of their game and I just remember being a quiet kid. Just really eager to learn and to put my best foot forward.”
From a quiet front-rower, to two-time captain of the Club, Storm has seen Bromwich record 273 games in purple, sitting in 4th place for all-time games played with Storm. Cementing his place in the history books, he confesses that captaincy was never a goal back then.
“I didn't even think about that then,” Bromwich said.
A goal of mine was just to be a really consistent first grader. As far as captaincy goes, I thought Smithy would play forever, so that’s all I thought.Jesse Bromwich Melbourne Storm Captain
After experiencing the turbulent 2010 season, Bromwich shared just how much it meant to him and the club to return to the top just two years later.
"I think that's why it's a very special time for this Club. Off the back of 2010 and we had a really strong year in 2011 but we fell short against the Warriors out here on AAMI Park,” Bromwich shared.
“In 2012, for that team to go and win the competition two years after what happened just shows how special this Club is and what a special time it was.
“It feels like it was just yesterday, but I'm really looking forward to seeing a lot of those boys and Friday should be good.”
