Biography:

Aaron's signing on a two-year deal was announced in June 2021, providing a boost for the Vodafone Warriors' depth in middle forwards.

A late developer at first-grade level, the 26-year-old made his NRL debut in 2020 and added a further nine appearances in 2021. In 10 NRL games he averages 78 metres and 18 tackles while he has a total of 10 tackle breaks.

Vodafone Warriors head coach Nathan Brown says Pene’s exposure to Melbourne’s renowned culture will be invaluable for the club. “Aaron has been in a great system for the last couple of years so he’ll bring some good experience from a top team to our club,” he said.

Of Samoan heritage, the 1.90m, 107kg Pene initially came through Parramatta’s under-20s in 2015 and 2016, had a stint at Penrith and has played in the New South Wales Cup and the Intrust Super Cup while he also had a year off playing park football.

Picked up by Melbourne midway through the 2019 season while playing for the Central Queensland Capras in the Intrust Super Cup, Pene was added to the Storm’s NRL by the end of the year.

In 26 Intrust Super Cup games, Aaron has averaged 137 metres and 23 tackles a match.
