Papenhuyzen media reports untrue

Melbourne Storm wishes to clarify media reports regarding Ryan Papenhuyzen.

At no stage has any Storm official made contact with another club directly or via a third party regarding an early release of Ryan from his contract.

Other than one text message, the Club has not been contacted for comment or clarification on the matter.

On that one occasion, the journalist was told unequivocally that the story was factually untrue.

Paps is a Melbourne Storm person, he is loved by his teammates, coaches and staff and adored by Storm members and fans across the country and we look forward to seeing him on the track when he resumes training in December.

Acknowledgement of Country

Melbourne Storm respect and honour the Traditional Custodians of the land and pay our respects to their Elders past, present and future. We acknowledge the stories, traditions and living cultures of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples on the lands we meet, gather and play on.
