One of Melbourne Storm’s most valuable and versatile players, Nick Meaney, has today signed a contract extension which will see him remain in purple until the end of the 2026 season.

A junior with the Ballina Seagulls, Meaney played for Newcastle and Canterbury before finding a home at Storm, debuting in round one against Wests Tigers in 2022.

“Making the move to Melbourne has been a great decision career-wise and just for life in general,” Meaney said. 

I really felt at home quickly both here at the club and living in Melbourne. I’ve made a home here with my family and I’m really happy to have my future sorted until the end of the 2026 season.

Now entrenched in the starting centre spot for Storm, Meaney recently reached his half-century of games for the club, celebrating with a try as part of an 18-point haul against the Warriors in Round Two this season.

Meaney: "I'm looking forward to building on my game at centre"

His goalkicking has become an important asset in his game and was highlighted by a key conversion late in last Thursday night’s win over Brisbane.

In his first year in Melbourne, Meaney had NRL career highs for games played in a season, tries scored in a season and total points scored in a season and played in his first finals match.

Storm General Manager of Football, Frank Ponissi, said Meaney quickly found his feet at Storm, being named as the joint winner of Storm’s Back of the Year Award in 2022 and has been the club’s leading point scorer in the last two seasons.

“We are delighted that Nick has extended his time with our club. Not only is he a valuable player because of his wonderful versatility in playing in so many positions, but more impressively he has been one of our most consistent and reliable players since he debuted for the club in Round One, 2022,” Ponissi said.

Nick is highly respected by the Coaches and his teammates and along with his wife Shania and children Reign and Rome they have bought into the culture at the Melbourne Storm

The 26-year-old has started games for the Storm in four different backline positions - fullback, five-eighth, wing and now centre – and has surpassed the 20-game mark in each of his three seasons for the club.

His NRL resume now features 117 matches (52 for Melbourne), 48 tries (24 for Melbourne) and 618 points (402 for Melbourne).
