Finch heading back to Melbourne
Wigan Warriors stand-off Brett Finch is to return to Melbourne Storm for the 2013 season, it was announced today.
The 31-year-old joined the Warriors in 2011 after the fall-out from the Storm’s salary-cap scandal and was a member of Wigan’s Challenge Cup-winning team in his first season.
Finch made the 2012 Super League Dream Team after an impressive second season at the DW Stadium but announced in June that he would be returning to Australia at the end of the year for personal reasons.
Melbourne football manager Frank Ponissi announced the re-signing of Finch at the club’s player-of-the-year awards night.
Finch has also played for Canberra, Sydney Roosters and Parramatta.
