Hughes signed with the Storm in 2017 and has represented the Melbourne -based club in 43 NRL games, scoring 15 tries. Teammate Josh Addo-Carr also had an injury scare during Friday’s game, clutching at his rib cage after a tackle in the first half. The star winger also played out the full 80 minutes and scored a stunning try in the 65th minute, albeit in considerable discomfort.

There was plenty of speculation that Hughes could return to New Zealand and link up with the Warriors.

New coach Nathan Brown initially ruled out the move at the end of 2020.

However, News Corp's Peter Badel is reporting that the Warriors offered Hughes a three-year deal around the $2.5 million mark.

Speaking about his contract future last week on The Byron Cooke Show podcast, Hughes was open about the big drawcard the Storm had with their offer, the culture.

"As a player or as a person you want to get the best out of yourself as much as possible," Hughes said.

"When I was lucky enough to come down here, I knew I wasn't going to play any first grade but the lessons I (knew I) could learn from the club - the players and the coaching staff - it was just too hard to refuse.

"You see a club like the Melbourne Storm, or Craig Bellamy and their (football) manager Frank Ponissi, if they're interested in you, that's worth more than money."
