Melbourne Storm have promoted five young players to their first-team.

The Storm have now filled out 28 of their top 30 squad ahead of the 2020 NRL season.

Forward Max King and full-back Nicho Hynes both played in the NRL for Melbourne last season, and have been added to the top 30 squad since the first squad was announced in November.

Fiji international Isaac Lumelume has also been given a first-grade deal, while forward pair Darryn Schonig and Aaron Pene have penned new deals with the club.
