Falcons Chris Lewis signs with Melbourne Storm

The Vantage Homes Falcons would like to announce that Falcons backrower and Intrust Super Cup backrower of the Year, Chris Lewis, has signed a full time development contract with the Melbourne Storm.

 

Chris has immediately re-located to Melbourne to take up the offer and completed his first week of full time pre-season training last week with the Melbourne Storm.

 

Lewis follows the same path that previous Falcons players Nicho Hynes, Darryn Schonig, Tui Kamikamica, Tino Fa’asuamaleaui and Ryley Jacks have all followed, in primary signing and playing with the Falcons before being identified by the Melbourne Storm and going on to sign full time contracts with the Storm.

 

“We are thrilled that Chris has signed a full time development contract with the Melbourne Storm. He has worked hard over the past 3 years at the Falcons and thoroughly deserves this opportunity” CEO Chris Flannery said. “Chris’ signing further enhances the success of the feeder team pathways that exists between the Melbourne Storm and the Falcons. Chris will join former Falcons players Nicho Hynes, Darryn Schonig, Tui Kamikamica, Tino Fa’asuamaleaui and Ryley Jacks in the full time squad this year and we wish them all, the very best for the 2020 season”.  Flannery added.

 

When not required by the Melbourne Storm it is anticipated that Chris will still return to play for the Falcons on a weekly basis.
