Melbourne Storm ready to fend off the Dolphins for Jahrome Hughes and Cameron Munster with huge deals

Melbourne Storm are set to go ahead with an $8 million to retain three of their key stars.

That’s according to the Daily Telegraph which has reported that deals for Cameron Munster, Jahrome Hughes and Harry Grant are in the pipeline.

Storm have lost a number of stars including Felise Kaufusi and Brandon Smith, but the club appear determined to nail down key deals.

“Yes, we’ve started some discussions,” Melbourne chairman Matt Tripp told The Courier-Mail.

“Absolutely I would love to keep them all, but none of them have made up their mind as yet.

“Two of the guys have said let’s just park it for the moment so we can focus on footy, so my preference is to let them find their feet and get used to the idea of sewing them up long-term.

“They (Munster, Grant and Hughes) are all different players and people in their own right but they are bloody good mates.

“I’d love to sign all of them. I’m good mates with the guys, we catch up regularly and play golf, they have been fantastic for this club.

“I’m hopeful (of retaining the trio), rather than bullish at this stage.”
