Storm prop Weston UK-bound

Yet another Melbourne player will be UK-bound at the end of the season with forward Dayne Weston set to join Leigh Centurions. 

The Storm announced on Monday Weston had signed a two-year deal with the Manchester-based, Championship side.

He'll be the second Storm player to call the UK home next year after favourite son Ryan Hinchliffe announced his departure to Super League outfit Huddersfield Giants back in June.

That same month Kurt Mann also announced he would also join the St George-Illawarra Dragons on a two-year deal.

Weston has been used largely off the bench since joining the Storm as a mid-season signing from Penrith in 2013.

The 28-year-old has played 16 games for the Storm to date but has been hampered this season by a bicep injury that has left him sidelined since Round 12.

His move overseas has, at least for now, put a halt to his journeyman NRL career that has included stints with the Sharks, Cowboys, Panthers and the Storm since making his first grade debut in 2011.
