Melbourne Storm’s Cameron Munster has a major decision to make in the next few days: sign a contract but lose money or join Wayne Bennett at the Dolphins.
Melbourne initially gave Munster, Harry Grant and Jahrome Hughes a deadline of Wednesday afternoon to accept a contract extension offers, with Grant and Hughes expected to sign big deals.
However, the deadline has been pushed back with Munster still unsure over where his future lies.
“For Cameron to stay, and you’ve got to understand he’s not off contract until the end of next year so there’s no real hurry for Cameron to sign anything,” Munster’s manager Braith Anasta said on NRL 360.
“If he does stay he’ll have to take a big pay cut, so that’s for him to decide and for us to decide in the short term but he won’t be hurrying into anything.
“He’s in a great headspace at the moment, physically and mentally he’s the best he’s ever felt.
“I haven’t (spoken to the Dolphins) but I’ve heard noise there’s interest there – and why wouldn’t there be?”
