Five-eighth Brett Finch has signed to play another NRL season with Melbourne.

Finch has found a playmaking niche in the powerful storm outfit alongside halfback Cooper Cronk since quitting Parramatta early in the season.

The 27-year-old was delighted to be retained in Melbourne - his fourth club - to the end of 2010 season.

"It didn't take me long to realise Melbourne was where I wanted to be next year," said Finch.

"I'm really enjoying my football down here. It's a great club with great players and a great culture."

Storm coach Craig Bellamy said Finch had made an immediate impression at the Storm.

"Brett has been tremendous," said Bellamy.

"He's only been here a short time but already he's had a significant impact."

The decision by Finch to re-sign follows last week's announcement that Brett White had pledged his long-term future to the Storm.

White, also 27, extended his current contract until the end of 2012, joining Greg Inglis, Billy Slater, Cameron Smith, Dallas Johnson, Jeff Lima, Anthony Quinn, Ryan Hoffman and Cooper Cronk in pledging his long-term future to the Storm.

Finch, who has played 227 career NRL games, will return to Sydney for Friday's big NRL clash with ladder-leading St George Illawarra.
