Suliasi Vunivalu has revealed he will leave Melbourne Storm at the end of the 2020 NRL season to switch codes with the Queensland Reds.

The Fiji international, who made his Storm debut in round seven of the 2016 campaign, has scored 72 tries in 94 appearances for the club.

Since being at the Storm, the 24-year-old has won the NRL Grand Final and the World Club Challenge, while he was the Dally M top try scorer in 2016 and 2017.

He told the club website: “The Storm has been wonderful to me, and I’m continuing to make great memories here.

“However, the offer from rugby union was too good for me to refuse, especially considering I have a young family who I want to do the best for.

“I was a rugby union player before switching to league and always thought going back to rugby was an option for my career and I never wanted to play for another NRL club.

“I’d hate to have to go up against Storm and my mates.

“Now this decision is public, I’m concentrating 100% on my final year in Melbourne and looking forward to doing the best I can for the boys, the coaches and all our members and fans.”
