Storm star Cameron Munster has perhaps dropped a hint that he plans on sticking around in Melbourne, speaking out about how his teammates are keen to carry on the club’s successful legacy.
The Queensland playmaker’s future is clouded, who is set to come out of contract at the end of next season and has a big extension on the table from the Storm.
“It was going to be hard for us losing Coops [Cooper Cronk] last year, Bill this year and, most likely, Smithy after next season, they are slowly fading away and us young blokes need to slowly back ourselves and not put too much pressure on ourselves,” Munster told The Sydney Morning Herald.
“Plenty of people will be writing us off when they leave and when Bellyache [Bellamy] hangs up his coaching boots, there will be so many critics writing us off but I know we have so much depth and so many good people around us who can help our club keep going forward.”
Skipper Cameron Smith would love to see Munster remain at the Storm, identifying him as a long-term leader.
“I’d love to have him around, we have him for another 12 months and I think he wants to stay and the club wants him to stay.
“He is a valuable part of this organisation and very important for the success moving forward, he is one of the guys you can build an organisation around and he’s very important part of our campaign this year.”
