Storm receive boost with centre signing new long-term deal

Will Chambers

Since his return from rugby union, he has been in some terrific form and he has now been rewarded for it, with the Melbourne Storm re-signing centre Will Chambers to a new deal, one that runs until the end of the 2017 NRL season.

Chambers, who is a Nhulunbury junior, an area from the Northern Territory has played in a total of 67 NRL games to date, with Frank Ponissi, the Storm’s General Manager of Football expressing delight at the re-signing.

“Not surprisingly Will attracted a lot of interest from rugby league and rugby union,” said Ponissi.

“We were shattered to see him leave the club at the end of 2009 and determined to avoid that happening again.

“Will has always been an impressive and very well-liked person. He actually returned a more mature player and person, who we identified as being a vitally important part of our club.

“We believe Will is just reaching his peek, he is playing outstanding footy, with plenty more to come. His signing is a significant boost for Melbourne Storm for now and for the future.”

Chambers shares the same sentiments as Ponissi, with a love for the club a key reason behind his decision to stay.

“I love Melbourne, the club and all the people involved,” said Chambers.

“When I returned to the club everyone was wonderful, they really made me feel welcome to be back at when it all began.

“Craig Bellamy’s decision to stay on a long term deal has made my decision a whole heap easier. I’m very settled in Melbourne and love playing for Melbourne Storm.”
