It's all cool.

Tino goes and there's closure and certainty.

Storm move on.

The next tall/big bloke in line at Storm will have a better career and more success at Storm than Tino at GC

Gold Coast and young men just has career suicide written all over it.
Agreed, idiotic decision.

Same with the talk a few weeks ago of Latrell going to the Titans. I cannot think of a worse match for either party.

Almost $700K per year. GTFOOH.

We''ll never know but would love to know what our offer was. Very rare the club likes a player and doesn't keep him.

Don't be concerned Storm Man....what doesn't kill our Club ....makes it stronger.

Plenty of talented blokes who actually want to play for the Purple jersey are still there.

Melbourne agree to compassionate release for star winger Josh Addo-Carr at the end of 2020 season
Star winger Josh Addo-Carr will be the latest Storm star to depart Melbourne, with the club agreeing to release the Test and Origin flyer on compassionate grounds.

Hopefully JAC’s bank account can survive on his current contract until then...

If his heart isn't going to be in it then it's better that he leaves the club. As exceptional of a talent as he is, it wouldn't be good in the long term to have him forced to play out his contract. It will be interesting to see if Craig can keep him focused and committed this year. I have thoroughly enjoyed having the Suli/JAC edge combo in our lineup and I wonder if we will miss them more than we realise at present.

Maybe we could convince Marika Koroibete to come back to an edge?

From an article by the Mole

"SHADES OF SLATER IN STORM PROSPECT

Craig Bellamy is excited about a young fullback who has joined the Storm from the same area as club legend Billy Slater.

Robert Derby, aged 17, from Cairns, has signed with Melbourne after shining in the elite schoolboy competition, the Confraternity Shield, for St Augustine's College last season.

Derby, who is eligible to play international football for Papua New Guinea, will start his journey to the top with the Storm's feeder club, Sunshine Coast Falcons, next season.

After 12 months of playing against grown men there, he is likely to join the full-time Melbourne spot and stake his claim to be the Storm's second star fullback from the north Queensland area."
