Melbourne Storm coach Craig Bellamy has labelled the leadership of Peter V’landys ‘tremendous’, saying a proposed resumption date of May 28 has given clubs hope in the midst of uncertainty.

The ARL Commission chairman has received glowing praise from rugby league circles for his bullish determination to resume the season after the coronavirus shutdown.

And while the Storm are facing a relocation to the NSW border to start training on May 4, Bellamy said his players have a ‘spring in their step’ as they work towards a competition restart next month.

“I think he’s done a tremendous job,” Bellamy told ABC’s Offsiders on Sunday.

“Like I say, it would be easy to sit back on your hands and just wait to see what other people are doing, or what the politicians, you know, are saying or whatever, and the medical people.

“But he’s made a date, and let’s try and make it work.”

With seven days until NRL training is set to resume, the Storm are still deliberating on where to base the team on the NSW border.
