Melbourne have signed young Cronulla backrower Atelea Vea and St George Illawarra centre Chase Stanley for the 2010 NRL season.

The pair have both agreed two-year deals with the 2007 premiers and Storm coach Craig Bellamy said he was delighted to secure their services.

"We think both players can add something to our playing list for next year and beyond," Bellamy said.

"We're confident that if they continue to work hard on their games they will keep getting better as footballers down here in Melbourne."

The 188cm, 100kg Stanley has played 37 career games, having made his NRL debut as a 17-year-old in 2007.

He has played four NRL games for the Dragons in 2009.

Stanley, who has already played two Tests for New Zealand, shapes as an outside back option for Bellamy in 2010, with Will Chambers and Joseph Tomane to depart at the end of the year.

Vea boasts an impressive physique, standing 183cm and weighing in at 103kg, and made his NRL debut for Cronulla in round 10 this year.
