Melbourne Storm Young Gun - Pride Petterson Robati - Born to be a star...

I have just had a read of the latest issue of Rugby League Week which came out on Thursday, 2014 Preview. Each of the NRL clubs have a feature article, and a Young Gun story.

We are great supporters of the Melbourne Storm club and have had  a grandson playing there for a number of years, playing in the Under 18 SG Ball competition in 2011-12, and starting in the Under 20's Holden Cup competition during 2013.

Let's share Storm 2014 Preview:  Young Gun  -  Pride Petterson - Robati written by Phil Mitchell, 'Rugby League Week'.

"Exotically named, and genetically gifted this 18-year old Kiwi backrower was probably born to be a star.The Storm thought as much four years ago when they signed the Wellington product to a six-year contract, and he certainly justified their faith in 2013 when he was named the club's Holden Cup 'Player of the Year'.

In his first season of Under 20's, which he is eligible for another two years, Petterson - Robati racked up some impressive statistics,  including being ranked fourth among Holden Cup forwards for run metres (2758). At this rate he'll be on the cusp of First Grade selection sooner rather than later."
