KAUFUSI TO STAY IN EYE OF THE STORM

Melbourne are on the verge of securing a major win with star backrower Felise Kaufusi poised to ink a new deal.

While understandably inundated with interest, the Storm are close to re-signing the Australian international for at least another three seasons.

Market Watch can also reveal Kaufusi’s management are exploring the option of a fourth year as part of the deal.

It’s understood the Storm are ironing out the finer details of the deal which is very close to be signed off on.

Still only 25, Kaufusi has a wealth of potential and expected to make his State of Origin debut for Queensland this series.

Having debuted for the Storm in 2015 after leaving North Queensland where he played NYC, Kaufusi has established himself as one of the premier edge players in the game.

The new deal will keep him in Melbourne until at least the end of 2021.

This is why Tim Glasby is talking with Newcastle.

At 25 years of age (Kaufusi)...Storm are obviously prioritizing signings as they should.

Love Tim Glasby...but Stimson taking Tim's place in the team and bringing in Corey Oats could be a great move imho.

Thanks for the service Tim. I agree, as solid as Tim is, if money is a factor he should exploit his good reputation to get a money deal elsewhere.

Tim is a prop though. Stimson is an edge backrower. Based on what I have seen to date, I wouldn't play Stimson as a middle forward. Oates is not even a proven backrower.

Remaining players off contract: Sandor Earl, Tino Fa'asuamaleaui, Sale Finau, Louis Geraghty, Tim Glasby, Harry Grant, Ryan Hoffman, Ryley Jacks, Cooper Johns, Tui Kamikamica, Kayleb Milne, Justin Olam, Junior Ratuvu, Billy Slater, Cameron Smith, Shem Tatupu, Lachlan Timms, Young Tonumaipea, Billy Walters

I believe we have the most off contract players of any club with 19.

He left Hawthorn after 'losing interest' in AFL but came from a Union background. Don't think he ever even played a Q Cup game?

Looking at the lists of all off-contract players at other clubs, there’s not really much there. Not one player jumped out at me where I was like, man I would love for the Storm to get him. One player I wouldn’t mind going after tho is probably JJ Felise from the Tigers, I think he could probably be a good steal

Parra are after Nelson

Nelson Asofa-Solomona of Melbourne Storm, I'm hearing that Parramatta may have a bit of interest in him," Ritchie said on Triple M on Wednesday.

"He's an absolute giant. Parramatta need a giant in their pack so don't be surprised if they have a bit of a nibble at the big fella coming out of the Melbourne Storm."



Nelsons parents just moved to Melbourne he isn't going anywhere


Even more unlikely now given the Eels just forked out millions to get Junior Paulo.

A very good observation RoftS....highly unlikely now that they paid massive overs for a front rower...

Reading that Newcastle are tryin to snap up Tim Glasby. He's already been shown around the Newcastle facilities so he's obviously exploring his options.

Storm apparently looking at Aiden Sezer. I don’t mind that, I think he would do really well in the Storm system

Glasby to Knights apparently a done deal. Happy that he gets a pay day, deserves it.

Hearing Tim Glasby has signed with the Knights. If correct, great recruit for Newcastle

Newcastle newspaper reporting he has verbally agreed to a multi-year deal with the Knights. Very happy for Tim and his family.
