Bellamy hopeful on Storm resurgence


Craig Bellamy says Melbourne are determined to play themselves out of their current form slump, which has seen them crash to five straight defeats.

Speaking ahead of Saturday’s home clash with Penrith, coach Bellamy declared the Storm will not give up in their quest for a top four spot.

“We’ll get back to the drawing board, we’re not giving up here, we are going to make sure we keep working hard and hopefully it will turn,” Bellamy told the club’s official website.

“We’re pretty sure we know what the problems are it’s just a matter of getting a bit consistent with some of the things we are doing, we are a little bit inconsistent at the moment so hopefully we can sort those things out.”

“We are all in this together, it’s not a great period for us at the moment.

The Storm crashed to their fifth straight defeat in the defeat to St George on Friday but still sit third in the NRL ladder.

“It’s really disappointing for us but I thought the guys tried hard and there was some good things about our game but there were a couple of things that obviously cost us really dearly,” added Bellamy.

“To the guys credit their training has been really good in the last couple of weeks but as I said we just haven’t transferred onto the field, but hopefully we’ll keep working and it will turn for us.”
