The Storm have found their replacement for North Queensland-bound forward Jordan McLean next year, bringing Cowboys forward Patrick Kaufusi in the other direction.
According to nrl.com, Storm coach Craig Bellamy announced the signing at a press conference Friday.
“Felise’s younger brother has agreed to terms to come down here next year,” Bellamy said. “Basically, we’ve had the three of them – Antonio was here when I first started.”
Kaufusi hasn’t played since injuring his foot while playing in the Pacific Test for Tonga.
He’s played 22 first grade matches for the Cowboys, as well as that Test match for Tonga.
