Cameron Munster commits long-term future to Melbourne Storm

Australia star Cameron Munster has penned a five-year deal with Melbourne Storm.

The lucrative contract will see him remain at the club until at least the end of the 2023 campaign.

The 24-year-old was off contract in 2019 and was attracting plenty of interest from rival NRL clubs, but speculation has now been silenced.

Munster burst onto the NRL scene back in 2014 and has already made 89 appearances for Melbourne, scoring 16 tries.

The half-back, who can also play at full-back and centre, has played four games for Queensland at Origin level and also earned two caps for Australia at last yearโ€™s World Cup.

Storm are hoping that captain Cameron Smith will be staying for at least another season, with negotiations currently ongoing.

Smith wants a two-year deal though but Melbourne boss Craig Bellamy doesnโ€™t see that as an issue.

He told NRL.com: โ€œI donโ€™t see it as a problem at all.

โ€œHeโ€™s going to be here next year. Itโ€™s just a matter of sorting a couple of things out.โ€
