Storm take NRL trophy back to Melbourne

Melbourne coach Craig Bellamy flew out of Sydney on Monday with the club's second premiership trophy in three years, declaring the Storm are well placed to continue their NRL success.

Bellamy said the 23-16 grand final win over Parramatta at ANZ Stadium on Sunday night had begun to sink in after celebrations with their jubilant under 20s squad who also claimed the Toyota Cup.

"I think it sank in last night," said Bellamy.

"I probably don't show my elation outwardly but I was buzzing inside.

"It's a great way to finish the season and for the under 20s to win as well, so it's been a great season for our club."

But Bellamy again refused to buy into talk that his club had created a dynasty with their four straight grand finals and two premierships in three years.

"This year we've won the competition and that's all we were worried about," he said.

"We don't look at what happened in the past or in the future."

Melbourne's players will join supporters at the club's Carlton training base at Visy Park for a fan day later on Monday afternoon.
