Storm Coach Craig Bellamy says his side must not dwell on the loss of Billy Slater for the remainder of 2015 as they prepare to host the ladder leading Broncos on Sunday.

Speaking to the media following his side's captain's run at AAMI Park, Bellamy explained the Club's disappointment at losing the fullback to injury but re-iterated the importance of moving forward. 

We'd certainly rather it didn't happen, we'd certainly rather it didn't happen for Billy. But it has happened so we've got to get on with it," Bellamy said on Friday.

"Cameron Munster has done a really good job so far, we've got a couple of other guys who can fill in there if something else happens.

"He is aware of the opportunity, he just needs to keep his eye on the ball and make sure he keeps preparing well and not thinking that is his spot.

"Because it's not his spot at the moment, he's still got to earn it. 


"There are some other guys there if Cameron doesn't continue his good form, but I'm sure he's aware it's a great opportunity for him and he just needs to keep preparing the way he has and playing the way he has."

The Storm coach is under no illusions what Wayne Bennett's ladder leading side will bring to AAMI Park on Sunday. Brisbane have lost just three matches after 13 games with Bellamy citing the Broncos adjustment to rule interpretations made for 2015 as part of their success this season.

"They have got a side full of good players, I think they have five or six in Origin and then guys like Hunt and Milford that can't get in the Origin team, that's a strong team," Bellamy said.

"I think they have adapted better to the rules better than anyone else.

"On the back of that they're playing some real good footy."

In Broncos team news, Wayne Bennett confirmed this morning Origin representative Corey Parker and Justin Hodges would not make the trip to Melbourne to face Storm.
