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.
â€œNot surprisingly Will attracted a lot of interest from rugby league and rugby union,â€ said Ponissi.
â€œWe were shattered to see him leave the club at the end of 2009 and determined to avoid that happening again.
â€œWill 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.
â€œWe 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.â€
Chambers shares the same sentiments as Ponissi, with a love for the club a key reason behind his decision to stay.
â€œI love Melbourne, the club and all the people involved,â€ said Chambers.
â€œWhen I returned to the club everyone was wonderful, they really made me feel welcome to be back at when it all began.
â€œCraig Bellamyâ€™s decision to stay on a long term deal has made my decision a whole heap easier. Iâ€™m very settled in Melbourne and love playing for Melbourne Storm.â€
