Jesse Bromwich

Dolphins recruit named Storm captain alongside star prop

Teammates and staff were informed of the selection on Wednesday morning, with Welch joining his the captaincy duo after Dale Finucane left for the Sharks.

This pairing will see a similar fate at the end of the 2022 season, with Bromwich, along with brother Kenny and backrower Felise Kaufusi, all departing to the Dolphins.

Interestingly, both are a part of the Storm’s leadership group along with newly inducted halfback Jahrome Hughes who took out the club’s Player of the Year award last season.

Dolphins land big gun to ease pressure

Bromwich, who has also captained New Zealand, will join the Dolphins on a two-year deal from their inaugural season in 2023.

The prop will turn 35 halfway through the final year of his contract.

Bromwich has played all of 272 NRL games at the Storm and will be a huge chance of becoming the Dolphins first captain.

The Kiwi is the fifth player to join the Dolphins since they were announced as the NRL’s 17th team last October.

Bromwich will join Storm teammate Felise Kaufusi, Eels forward Ray Stone, Broncos flyer Jamayne Isaako and young gun Valynce Te Whare.

Bromwich not guilty at NRL judiciary

Bromwich would have escaped suspension had he pleaded guilty for the first-half tackle on St George Illawarra's Euan Aitken, but risks a one-match suspension by challenging it at the NRL judiciary. If Bromwich accepted the original charge, he would have taken 93 carry-over points as a result.

Bromwich, Hampton charged for dangerous throw

The two players attracted the attention of the NRL match review committee from the Round 15 Dragons-Storm clash on Saturday night.

The Storm duo were charged for a 34th minute challenge on Dragons centre Euan Aitken, but a previous good record means the pair can escape suspension with an early guilty plea.
