Melbourne Storm has locked in 2023 debutante Bronson Garlick to a new two-year deal that will see his time at the club extended until the end of the 2025 season.
Having debuted in Storm’s round one win over the Eels, 27-year-old Garlick has been named in Storm’s line-up for every match this season.
“I didn’t think I would be here last year and then to debut round one was dream come true,” Garlick said.
I’ve looked at the honour board in the sheds every day hoping to be added along side some of the greats of the game. To play one game has been incredible and to be given the opportunity to play at Storm for another two years is hard to believe.
“I can’t thank Craig and the coaches enough. They have given me the chance to play first grade which is something I never thought would happen and to do that at Storm - the best club in the world - it quite surreal.” Garlick said.
Storm General Manager Football, Frank Ponissi, said Garlick had been a great fit for the Club since joining at the start of the 2022 season.
“Bronson has bought into our club from the very first day he first joined us in November 2021 on a one-year deal,” Ponissi said.
“He’s obviously come to us as a mature-aged player with some great experience at reserve grade, but he has worked extremely hard on his game playing with Brisbane Easts last season.
He was rewarded with another one-year deal for 2023 and after an outstanding pre-season, we’re pleased he’s seeing the results of that work by getting a regular start this season playing an important role off the bench.Frank Ponissi General Manager Football, Melbourne Storm
Garlick has played 121 reserve grade games in New South Wales and Queensland and all eleven Storm games in the 2023 season, scoring one try.
