Melbourne Storm and Australian Representative player Greg Inglis has today agreed to terms with the Storm and inked a $2 million, 4 year agreement which will keep him at the leading Melbourne based club.
The 21-year-old who switched from the centres to pivot in 2008, now joins super coach Craig Bellamy and no.7 Cooper Cronk all whom now have long standing agreements with the Storm – more than likely ensuring continued success for the club that is chasing back to back NRL Premierships in the weeks ahead.
Sources put the latest Inglis deal at around the $2 million mark over the 4 year term.
There had been some talk that Inglis could leave the code and accept bigger offers on the table.
A good boost for the NRL and the Rugby League code; with Inglis shunning other sports and keeping himself in the game and with the front running Storm club.
Last night the talented League star nabbed the Representative Player of the Year and Pivot of the Year gongs at the Dally M ceremony.
Inglis now joins the likes of Cooper Cronk, workhorse backrower Dallas Johnson and flanker Anthony Quinn as big name Melbourne players agreeing to terms this year and keeping the core group together at the leading NRL club.
The only remaining piece to the puzzle for the Storm is hooker Cameron Smith, if as expected Smith remains down south – the Storm should no doubt remain a powerhouse for many years to come
Melbourne are expected to publicly make the Inglis announcement later today.
