Experienced Storm forward Felise Kaufusi is still riding the wave after scoring his first try of the season last weekend. 

Entering his eighth season in Melbourne, Kaufusi scored his first try since June last year and it’s a feat his teammates will continue to hear about for a little while longer. 

“I've been hearing ‘Fus and Furious’ or ‘Ferrari’ or ‘The Black Ferrari’. I was like ‘that’s not bad, it's got a little ring to it’ so, I'll ride that wave as long as I can,” the second-rower laughed. 

"You can see, once I score, I looked back and laughed because I think I palmed him (Jahrome Hughes) off and Paps (Ryan Papenhuyzen) was too slow to stay with me, so I had a good laugh about that and I'm still giving it to him today. 

I guess I’m the old bull in the pack...I’ve still got a couple tricks up my sleeve.

Defence was a key area of improvement highlighted by coach Craig Bellamy following his side’s loss to Parramatta two weeks ago and the turnaround in Round 4 was something Kaufusi was impressed with. 

“That was probably the most impressive part of our game was keeping them (Canterbury Bulldogs) to nil, so to keep building on that and keep teams to nil, we’ll go a long way.” Kafusi said. 

After finally returning home for a triple header at AAMI Park, the squad prepare to hit the road again on Saturday to face the Canberra Raiders in Wagga Wagga. The Queensland Origin forward knows Ricky Stuart’s side present a tricky assignment. 

“Especially their left edge, that’s their go to edge with White and Hudson, and Tomoko has been playing really well so we'll have our hands full there,” Kaufusi said.
