Melbourne have rewarded rising international forwards Kenny Bromwich and Tui Kamikamica with new two-year deals as part of a three-pronged re-signing announcement.
The younger Bromwich brother and Fijian prop Kamikamica have both re-signed with the Storm until the end of 2022 with options for another season in 2023, while fringe front-rower Albert Vete has also re-committed for another two years.
Bromwich, who has played 10 Tests for New Zealand and 150 games for Melbourne, has an option in his favour for the final year of his deal.
The 2023 component of Kamikamica's contract is an option in the club's favour.
The new deals are reward for career-best campaigns from the two forwards, with Bromwich nominated for Dally M back-rower of the year after playing every game and announcing himself as a genuine attacking threat on the Storm's left-edge.
Kamikamica, meanwhile, was declared the Storm's most improved player of 2019, rounding out his first full NRL season with impressive displays for Fiji in the front row.
The club also confirmed that Queensland Origin forward Christian Welch has taken up his 2020 option.
