Speaking of his move to the Tigers, BJ said “I’ve had a few mates play here for the Tigers like Az (Aaron Pene) who spent the past three seasons with the Storm, and they’ve only said good things about the club.

“I’ve always known the Tigers to be a very a good club and I’m super pumped to stay within the Melbourne Storm system”, he added.

Speaking of his 2022 season aspirations, BJ said “I just want to be able to play consistent footy and work really hard on my defense. Ultimately I want to have a good year”.
