Melbourne Storm forward Jesse Bromwich doesn’t know what it’s like to play in the NRL under anyone besides Craig Bellamy, and he hopes that doesn’t change anytime soon.
With Bellamy’s future currently up in the air with an offer from the Broncos rivalling an offer from the Storm, it is unsure which side Bellamy coaches beyond this season.
Despite the uncertainty surrounding Bellamy’s future, Bromwich told the Herald Sun during the week his coach’s contract talks aren’t getting to him, although he just hopes he makes the right decision.
“Not for myself personally, I can’t speak for everyone else,” Bromwich told the Herald Sun ahead of the Storm’s clash with the Broncos on Sunday at AAMI Park.
“I’d love Bellyache to stay, he’s been here for a very long time and all the boys love having him around.
“You got to give him space and respect whatever he does because he never comes in and, I guess, try to force us into a decision when we’re off contract, so I don’t see why we should do that to him.
“We’ll support him whatever he does, but I really hope he stays.”
Bromwich has played all 190 NRL games under Bellamy, for 135 wins and just 54 losses.
