Our Hughesy hits 100

Jahrome Hughes will achieve yet another milestone, 100 Melbourne Storm games, Friday night at AAMI Park. 

Hailing from Wellington, New Zealand and beginning his junior rugby league journey with the Currumbin Eagles,‘Hughesy’ went on to make his first-grade debut in 2013 as fullback with the Gold Coast Titans. In a full-circle moment, the now premiership-winning halfback will celebrate his achievement against his old club. 

Later moving to the North Queensland Cowboys and showing promise, Hughes impressively bounced back from two back surgeries in 2016 before pulling on the purple jersey in 2017. 

Evolving from fullback to halfback, Hughes’ true potential was only just beginning. A newfound approach to footy saw Hughes go on to represent his Kiwi heritage in the International arena in 2019 and 2022. 

Reaping the benefits of his hard work, Hughes went on to record his best season yet in 2021 taking home the 2021 Spirit of ANZAC Medal, 2021 Melbourne Storm Player of the Year award and the 2021 Kiwi Player of the Year award. 

Continuing to develop off-field as well as on-field, Hughes was appointed to join Storm’s emerging leaders group in 2019. Transitioning into the 2022 leadership group, the Wellington native showed his growth, taking on the role of Captain in Round 6 earlier this year, leading the squad to a 16-point win over the Sharks. 

Regarded as one of the best halfbacks in the NRL, Hughes’ perseverance, dedication and leadership make the praise and accolades well-deserved.
