Melbourne will have to fight to retain the services of Billy Walters, son of Queensland coach Kevin Walters, according to a report by Fox Sports.

Walters is out of contract and yet to sign a new deal with the Storm.

The 25-year-old finds himself behind a number of other spine players in the Storm pecking order, trying to find a spot in the team along the likes of Cameron Munster.

It could be enough to make Walters feel inclined to seek greener pastures elsewhere.

Walters has only played two games in the NRL, and Melbourne understand that the five-eighth could find better opportunities elsewhere with a rival club.

The Storm currently have greater priorities at play, looking to lock down the highly sought after Tino Fa’asuamaleaui.

The 19-year-old is reportedly attracting contract offers of up to $1.5 million.
