Josh Addo Carr Contract Discussion

https://wwos.nine.com.au/nrl/josh-addo-carr-to-meet-storm-over-move-to-sydney/dfd684e9-e4d9-47b1-af06-f9075af284cd

Despite two years left on his deal with the Melbourne Storm, winger Josh Addo-Carr is said to be tossing up a return to Sydney.

Addo-Carr has been a bona fide star since joining the Storm in 2017 from the Wests Tigers and has about $700,000 left on his current contract.

Yet according to Nine’s Danny Weidler, Addo-Carr and his manager, Chris Orr, will both meet with Storm officials in Sydney to try and nut out a deal which would see the flyer leave Melbourne.

"I’ve been hearing for a while that Addo-Carr wants to base himself in Sydney because of a changed family situation.

At this point I haven’t heard that Addo-carr has asked for a release nor has he fielded any firm offers," he said. “But that could change with today’s meeting.”

Addo-Carr was asked whether he viewed Melbourne as home just weeks after the the season ended, and he was quite clear on where his heart is.

When asked last week if Melbourne or Sydney was home, Addo-Carr made it clear the Harbour City is where his heart is.

“Sydney is always home for me,” Addo-Carr said.

"I’m grateful for what Melbourne have done for me. They’ve turned my career around. They’ve turned me into the player I’ve always dreamt to be.

“Sydney (though) is always going to be home. My whole family is there. If I want to start a little family, I want my kids to grow up with my family.”

Addo-Carr also credited Craig Bellamy with helping him transform himself on and off the field.

“It was the culture of Melbourne,” Addo-Carr said. “We have good leaders. You have to work hard to be in the side. You don’t get given the jersey. You earn it.”

Yet he left us because we didn’t gift him a jersey and him not wanting to earn it…

Would welcome him back with open arms in a heartbeat.

I think in hindsight we’ve looked pretty silly there. Having Rankin on the wing instead of him was one of JT’s biggest shockers.

And how do you know that for certain?
I swear, some posters just have such a negative ‘default’ position when it comes to anything related to the Wests Tigers

Yeah he did, but maybe he has learned the value in earning things down there. Not to say he couldn’t have learnt that here, it may just be that needed to grow up a little.

Look who the manager is and it didn’t take long to do a follow up on the Matterson play.

Lets Go For JAC wants to come home and would love to be at Leichhardt and see him make a break again Al La Larry

Now that the LM thread is over, lets get this to close to 200 and fail.

Lets just do this all off-season to speed it up.

Probably off to the Roosters as they are way under the cap.

NRL reporting that the WT’s have turned there attention to signing JAC.

Can always leave Thommo at FB
