Kamikamica locks in new Storm contract

Fijian forward Tui Kamikamica will get the chance to become a 100-game plus player with Melbourne Storm after signing a two-year contract extension.

The 28-year-old, who has played 71 NRL games since his debut in 2017, will stay in the purple jersey until at least the end of the 2025 season.

After playing seven games in his first two NRL seasons in Melbourne and featuring prominently for feeder club Sunshine Coast Falcons, the front-rower reeled off 21 matches in 2019 before being sidelined by a back injury for most of 2020.

However, he has established his position in Storm’s first 17 over the last two seasons, amassing an impressive 38 games, including three finals appearances.

Kamikamica, who also has 17 Tests for Fiji on his record, was elevated to Storm’s Emerging Leaders group last season and will be one of the club’s senior forwards in the upcoming 2023 campaign.

“Storm was the first club to give an opportunity to play in the NRL. It’s always an honour and a dream come true to pull on the purple jersey,” Kamikamica said.

“To be able to stay here for a couple more years to come is very pleasing for me and for my family back in Fiji.

“I’ve also got some very good mates here, especially Juzzy (Olam) and Nelson (Asofa-Solomona), so I’m happy I get to spend some more time with them over the next couple of years.”

Kamikamica said the 100-game mark was a big career aim.

“As long as I can stay injury-free, and play week-in, week-out, that’s the aim for myself - to play 100 games,” he said.

“And to play 100 games for Melbourne Storm would be a huge honour.”

Storm begins its NRL Pre-season Challenge campaign against Sydney Roosters at GHMBA Stadium this Sunday (1.50pm).
