Melbourne Storm contract Cameron Munster, Dolphins, Craig Bellamy

Melbourne Storm star Cameron Munster has said his “intentions” are to stay in Victoria despite interest from NRL rivals.

Munster will be back on the pitch on Thursday when the Storm take on the Rabbitohs, in what will be manager Craig Bellamy’s 500th game.

The playmaker missed the first round due to a one-game suspension for his role in Melbourne’s white stuff scandal in the offseason.

The 27-year-old is out of contract at the end of 2023, and the NRL’s incoming 17th franchise has been very picky with Storm players, which has seen brothers Kenny Bromwich and Jesse Bromwich, as well as Origin star Felise Kaufusi, all sign deals with the club from next season.

While Munster’s name has been heavily linked with Wayne Bennett’s Dolphins, the Storm star says his plans are to stay in Melbourne.

“I’m not making too many decisions at the moment, but I intend to stay here as much as possible,” he said.

Munster also spoke about his relationship with Bellamy, which he says was a key factor in keeping him in Melbourne.

“A lot of staff and players think I’m on his will, they all think he’s my dad,” Munster joked.

“Obviously I had some indiscretions off the pitch, regarding the party scene…if it wasn’t for him, I probably still wouldn’t be here.

“He kept faith in me to stay here and he saw the good in me.”
