Curtis Scott is a chance to miss this weekend’s match against the Canterbury Bulldogs.

The Melbourne Storm centre played with a “rattled” shoulder against the Penrith Panthers and will therefore be monitored by club officials in the coming days.

Storm assistant coach Jason Ryles dismissed speculation that back-rower Joe Stimson could leave the club, following reports that linked him to St George Illawarra.

“He has been here for a long time and is a Storm player through and through,” Ryles said on Tuesday.

“So it was a little bit of a surprise to see that (report) and we haven’t heard anything otherwise. It’s obviously a little bit of rumours in the paper that we don’t listen to.”

Stimson will not play in the Storm’s round four clash, even though he impressed in his return to the Queensland Cup last week.

“Our development coaches told us he looked like an NRL player playing in the QCup so that’s really good to hear,” Ryles said.

The 23-year-old scored a try in the Sunshine Coast Falcons’ 32-20 win over North Devils.
