Bellamy's beef with whining NRL rivals


//

Melbourne Storm might have the chance to wrap up the NRL's minor premiership this weekend, but coach Craig Bellamy has a major beef.

The veteran coach showed great restraint at his media conference today as he hit back at critics of his players.

The critics can usually be found north of the Murray and their moaning is as predictable as their timing.

Joey's million-dollar man: Immortal Behaviour

"It always seems to come up this time of the year," Bellamy said.

The latest round of Storm bashing pertains to their style of tackling,

"The thing that basically disappoints me a bit, the guys who brought it up, or talk about it, and say we do this at training, we do that at training … I've never seen those guys at training. How do they know what we're doing at training?" Bellamy added.

But what irks Bellamy more than anything else in this latest round of anti-Stormism is the lack of respect shown to his players.

"It's like all we do at training is plan to take short cuts or plan to exploit rules, when this group is probably the hardest working group I've ever worked with," Bellamy said.

"I've been here 18 years, these young guys work really hard and that's why we are where we are on the ladder" Bellamy told a media conference at AAMI Park.

That ladder position, by the way, is firmly on top.

A win over fellow finalists, Canberra, on Saturday will virtually guarantee Storm of the minor premiership.

Billy calls out discrimination

While most coaches would normally play down the importance of the pre-September prize, Bellamy is embracing it.

Again, it's a whack back to his club's detractors.

"The boys have worked really hard this year and to win a minor-premiership is a pretty big accolade in itself," Bellamy said.

The actual premiership is the primary motivation and, given their current form, the Storm are well on track to achieving just that.

Not known for his joviality, it would certainly bring a smile to Bellamy's face … watching the smirks disappear from the faces of those who continually dare to doubt.
