Storm Swoop On Robbie Rochow

According to Triple M and the Australian's Brent Read, there may be a bit of a player swap on the cards.

Speaking on Triple M Saturday NRL, Ready said Melbourne are again adding depth to their pack.

 "As of yesterday, they were in talks to try to get Robbie Rochow out of South Sydney," Ready said. Listen to the full report below.

"They were doing a swap deal. Dean Britt - Darren Britt's son who plays for Melbourne.

"As I understand it, the deal went through.

"So Melbourne, who are having an outstanding year, have now picked up Robbie Rochow by the sounds of it.

 "It just gives them more power in that forward pack. They are going to be hard to stop."

 Rochow only signed with Souths mid last year and has made just eight appearances for the club.

He will head straight to the Storm for the remainder of 2017, with Britt moving up to Souths. Britt was already signed with Souths for 2018.

  Since this story was first published, the Storm have confirmed the signing on Twitter. See below.
