Cade Umaga set for NRL debut with Melbourne Storm

2 posts in this topic

MELBOURNE Storm were born to blaze a trail, but the champion club will take their mission to new heights should Cade Umaga make his NRL debut next season.

Poaching the son of All-Blacks great Tana Umaga two years ago was a bold enough statement, given the teenager had always dreamed of following his father's footsteps.

And with Cade now halfway through his second NYC pre-season, the ultimate exclamation mark awaits.

Unlike his father, whose rugby league career was abruptly abbreviated by homesickness, the 19-year-old second-rower has settled into Australian life and showed real promise following the completion of last year's under-20s competition.

It's been a remarkable transition for Cade, who was scouted by late Storm recruitment man Dean Bell in his first serious game of schoolboy league for Wellington.
