Fijian forward Tui Kamikamica has re-signed with the Melbourne Storm on a two-year deal until the end of 2025. 

The 17-Test veteran has played 71 NRL games for the Storm since making his debut in 2017. 

“Storm was the first club to give an opportunity to play in the NRL. It’s always an honour and a dream come true to pull on the purple jersey,” Kamikamica said in a statement.

Kamikamica was elevated to Storm’s Emerging Leaders group last season and will be one of the club’s senior forwards in the upcoming 2023 campaign.

“To be able to stay here for a couple more years to come is very pleasing for me and for my family back in Fiji.

“I’ve also got some very good mates here, especially Juzzy (Olam) and Nelson (Asofa-Solomona), so I’m happy I get to spend some more time with them over the next couple of years.”

Kamikamica said the 100-game mark was a big career aim.

“As long as I can stay injury-free, and play week-in, week-out, that’s the aim for myself – to play 100 games,” he said.

“And to play 100 games for Melbourne Storm would be a huge honour.”

Storm begins its NRL Pre-season Challenge campaign against Sydney Roosters at GHMBA Stadium this Sunday.
