Melbourne superstar Cameron Munster is sure to be in bed with any suggestion he will say goodbye to the storm at the end of this season.
The 27-year-old has a contract in the Victorian capital for 2023, but there has been speculation that he may leave early to join NRL’s new team, Dolphin Wayne Bennett.
Bennett confirmed earlier this month that rumors would continue when he confirmed that the Dolphins wanted to break Munster’s contract and join the expansion team for their inaugural campaign the following year.

Adding fuel to the fire is that Melbourne has offered Munster a significantly lower salary to stay in Storm beyond 2023.
But, fortunately for Melbourne, Munster’s decision was made a fortnight ago when super coach Craig Bellamy announced that he would be coaching Storm again next season, delaying his retirement to extend his incredible career.
“As long as Craig is still at the club (I’ll be there),” Munster told the media from the Queensland camp on Tuesday.
“I love playing with Craig, and I know he likes to keep me as one of his players.
“Look, as long as Beliache is at the club I don’t see myself leaving.”
A hit for Munster’s North Bennett and his dolphins, who are still looking for a top-class playmaker to handle the ship next season.
Munster has followed in the footsteps of Kalin Ponga and Rees Walsh to stop Bennett’s progress in recent weeks.
