NRL 2021: Melbourne Storm in ‘constant contact’ with Cameron Smith, CEO Justin Rodski reveals

  NRL 2021: Melbourne Storm in ‘constant contact’ with Cameron Smith, CEO Justin Rodski reveals Smith is yet to make a decision on whether to retire or continue his legendary NRL career in 2021.Smith is still keeping the entire NRL community guessing over his future less than two weeks out from the start upcoming season.

Melbourne Storm captain Dale Finucane has been ruled out for six weeks, adding another huge name to the club's casualty ward ahead of the 2021 season.

With star hooker Harry Grant missing in action for the first few rounds, the reigning premiers were already on the back foot injury wise.

And on Thursday morning, the club confirmed reports from Wednesday that Finucane - who was recently named co-captain alongisde Jesse Bromwich - would be out of action for over a month after picking up a lowe leg injury.

Finucane played all three games for NSW in last year's State of Origin series, and has established himself as one of the premier lock forwards in the competition.

The 29-year old struggled with a calf injury in 2020, missing plenty of football before returning in the preliminary final win over Canberra.

Melbourne Storm's consistency remains, winning another NRL season opener even without Cameron Smith .
In many ways, the first game of the NRL season for the Storm was just like their last 19 season openers and the 2020 NRL grand final, but it was always going to feel strange without Cameron Smith.When we last left the Melbourne Storm in the 2020 grand final, they were coming within a whisker of surrendering a 22-point first-half lead to a team many expected to win the premiership.
