Melbourne Storm re-signs Brett Finch

Melbourne Storm has secured the prized signature of five-eighth Brett Finch for at least another season. It took less than four months at the Storm for the former New South Wales State of Origin halfback to be convinced that his short-term future belonged in Melbourne. Relishing his role in a backline consisting the likes of Billy Slater, Greg Inglis and Cooper Cronk, Finch decided against testing the open market as he searches for an elusive premiership. He signed a new deal this morning that will keep him at the Storm until the end of 2010.
