Storm sign Ativalu Lisati

Melbourne Storm has boosted its forward pack by signing promising New Zealand-born Ativalu Lisati until the end of the 2025 season.

Lisati will join Storm from the Penrith Panthers as a mid-season signing and will have his first training session with his new club this week.

The 23-year-old forward comes to Melbourne after moving from New Zealand in 2019 to pursue his dream of playing rugby league at the highest level.

He first came to attention at schoolboy level and was signed by the Panthers after an impressive season for Ipswich State High School when they finished second in the elite 2019 Langer Cup competition.
