‘The Foxx’ in purple

Postby Cameron » Thu Oct 26, 2017 3:11 pm

Amazing numbers for the Foxx in his first season.

Not sure how he wasn't playing for the West Tigers but it goes to show how players become transformed when they get into the Melbourne Storm system.

Lets hope Josh Addo-Carr improves again next year. He can't be too far away from Australian selection.

hat a debut season it was for ‘The Foxx’ in purple.

His first touch of the ball as a Storm player saw him run 60 metres up field and from there he never looked back.

With 23 tries to his name, Addo-Carr finished as the Club’s leading try scorer alongside Suliasi Vunivalu.

His hat-trick at AAMI Park in a 64-6 win over the Rabbitohs as well as two tries and an assist in the Grand Final were just some in a long list of highlights this season.

Addo-Carr was one of only two Storm players to feature in every game in 2017, also leading the team for run metres, tackle busts and support runs whilst producing more line breaks than any other player in the competition.

The 22-year-old scored Storm’s first try in all three finals and formed an exciting left side combination alongside Curtis Scott during the second half of the season.

Addo-Carr’s blistering runs down the AAMI Park sideline have quickly made him a fan favourite amongst the purple army as he announced himself as one of the NRL’s most exciting young talents.

The best part is that he signed a new four-year deal in August, ensuring Storm fans can continue to fall in love with Addo-Carr for many seasons to come.

On grand final day 12 months before scoring two tries against the Cowboys Josh Addo-Carr had been playing fullback for the Redfern All Blacks in Koori Knockout when at one stage he was cleaned up by a coathanger as he strove for the line.

Addo-Carr has told of how he was pulled into line by Craig Bellamy upon arriving at Melbourne and told that they didn't carry on celebrating tries down that way.
