Fijian winger Isaac Lumelume to return to NRL with Parramatta Eels, The Mole


Fijian international winger Isaac Lumelume has signed with the Parramatta Eels for 2023.

Lumelume, 24, joined the Bulldogs this season but was unable to break into the strong Canterbury backline.

But he still made a contribution to the club, playing in the NSW Cup grand final loss to Penrith.

A tall winger with power and speed, Lumelume made his NRL debut for Melbourne in 2020.

He scored three tries in six starts with the Storm before moving to Sydney last season for family reasons.

Born in Sydney but with Fijian heritage, Lumelume has played three Tests for the island nation, scoring one try.

Lumelume is on a train and trial deal and faces a tough job forcing his way into the Eels’ top side.

Fellow Fijian Maika Sivo has a mortgage on one wing spot, with a host of players vying for the other.
