Melbourne Storm star has seen his season of frustration continue with a hamstring tear sidelining him for up to six weeks.

The New Zealand international prop pulled up lame during the second half of the Storm’s 32-16 win over Brisbane at AAMI Park on Sunday and immediately felt for his hamstring.

Storm coach Craig Bellamy said post game the injury was “not a strain” and scans this week confirmed Bromwich has a grade two hamstring tear with the club expecting him to miss four to six weeks.

Bromwich returned two weeks ago after missing four weeks with a knee injury, previously Bromwich has rarely missed games and rated among the more durable forwards in the Storm’s pack.

Losing Bromwich strips the Storm of their leading prop at a time when they are already hamstrung by the absences of their State of Origin stars.

Although the forward pack has not had any players promoted to Origin so far, utility forward Tim Glasby was 18th man for Queensland in the first game of the Origin series so could well be selected for game two later this month.

Glasby was named as Bromwich’s replacement in the starting side for this Sunday’s clash against the Knights in Newcastle with Kenny Bromwich moving to lock, while Christian Welch and Joe Stimson look likely to play more minutes off the bench.

The Storm have also brought suspended centres Will Chambers and Curtis Scott back into the side after they completed one and two-match bans respectively with Young Tonumaipea and Cheyse Blair relegated to the reserves list along with forwards Sam Kasiano and Patrick Kaufusi.

If the Storm opt for another prop on the bench, Kasiano looks a strong candidate to fill that role in place of Hughes or Slater.
