Finucane chasing lost opportunities

The rugged Storm back-rower will head into Sunday's NRL grand final as hungry as anyone to finally lay his hands on the Provan-Summons Trophy.

Having already tasted grand final defeat twice during his three years at Canterbury, the lure of a premiership win drives the 25-year-old Bega product.

He revealed he came close to signing with the Storm five years ago after coming through the Bulldogs junior ranks, which would have put him on the opposite side of the ledger during the 2012 grand final.
