It has left Munster at a crossroads, with the playmaker deciding whether to pursue the lucrative offer from the Dolphins, or stick with the Storm on a reduced salary and stand a stronger chance of competing for the top prizes.
And according to Storm chief Paul Bunn, Munster wants to stay at the club but his agent – former Blues Origin star Braith Anasta – is ‘hunting other clubs’.

‘Hopefully he can stay, that was one of the key components of me staying was hopefully him staying as well.
‘But he’s got to do what’s best for him with his young family.’
‘He knows all the boys love him and want him to stay here,’ Harry Grant added.
‘He’s a player you definitely want to play alongside, you don’t want to play against him.
‘I played against him when I was at the Tigers and it wasn’t fun.’
