Former student, Kenny Bromwich made his NRL first-grade debut against Wests Tigers at AAMI Park on Monday night.

Last season, Bromwich was close to earning a starting berth in the Melbourne Storm line-up after being named 18th man on numerous occasions throughout the year.

The younger brother of current Storm prop Jesse, Kenny is a product of the Melbourne Storm development system and a past member of the Sports Academy Rugby League Program.

A strong showing throughout the 2011 NYC season, where he was named in the competition’s Team of the Year earned Bromwich elevation onto the senior Storm playing roster.

Kenny becomes the 149th player to represent Melbourne and joins Mahe Fonua as a past Sports Academy student now playing Rugby League in the highest grade in Australia.
