Craig Bellamy to turn down Brisbane Broncos and re-sign with Melbourne Storm, says Gorden Tallis

  Craig Bellamy to turn down Brisbane Broncos and re-sign with Melbourne Storm, says Gorden Tallis Brisbane Broncos legend Gorden Tallis has added his voice to the chorus of past players and pundits to speculate on Melbourne Storm boss Craig Bellamy’s future. Media reports last Sunday declared the premiership-winning coach had decided to reject a reported three-year, $5million offer from the Brisbane Broncos and ink a similar three-year extension to stay in Melbourne.But Bellamy, who last week publicly declared he would not coach the Broncos in 2019 because Bennett is already contracted for next season, remains conflicted over his decision according to multiple reports.

Craig Bellamy and Wayne Bennett will get the opportunity to discuss their coaching futures face -to- face when the pair speak Toowoomba Turf Club chief executive Blair Odgers doesn't expect that to change given the relationship both Bennett and Bellamy share with the event organisers.

Bellamy impressed during his five years under Bennett and his credentials soon caught the eye of Melbourne officials who offered him a head-coaching role that started in 2003.

The Broncos have won four of their last five matches dating back to April, but Johns believes the defending premiers will bring that winning run to an end.

“Craig Bellamy will win this one, I like the Storm down there,” Johns said.

“No Billy Slater for Melbourne, due to his hamstring injury. It will be interesting to see if he plays the following week.

“I’m going to lean towards the Storm in this one, it’s a bit of a juicy one considering the two coaches are coming up against each other.”

Gold Coast hosts third-placed Souths in Friday night football, live and free on Nine from 7:30pm, and Johns is expecting plenty of points.

“This will be a really high scoring, entertaining game, but for me the Rabbitohs will win by a try or two,” Johns said.

Phil Gould continues to lead the Wide World of Sports tipping competition, although his margin has been cut to just two points as we head into the second half of the season.
