Melbourne have emerged as the favourites to sign former Parramatta halfback Brett Finch as boss Craig Bellamy looks to ease his selection worries.
He told Fox Sports: “I don’t want to be sitting out of the game too long and if I can sort that out over the next 48 hours that would be great.”
Finch says the prospect of playing for the Storm is an exciting one.
He added: “They’re a very successful club and have been the dominant team for so many years now and it would be great to play with so many of their stars.”
It is thought that Bellamy wants Finch as a replacement for bad-boy five-eighth Arana Taumata, who was sacked on the eve of the season after a drunken assault in central Melbourne.
