Veteran forward Nate Myles has given a tell-all interview to NRL.com detailing his “proudest year to date” as a rugby league player.
Myles, 32, said he couldn’t take all of the credit for the Melbourne Storm’s 2017 premiership, but does believe his contribution was pivotal to the team’s momentum.
“Frankly, I don’t think the Storm could’ve done it without me,” Myles said.
“They are a great team but before I came down here they lacked a bit of polish you know.”
“I’m not ashamed to say that without my couple of cameos off the bench, well, I don’t think we would be holding the trophy let’s put it that way.”
However Melbourne coach Craig Bellamy was less glowing about Myles’ contribution to the 2017 premiership.
“Yep, Nate did play for us this year a couple of times that’s right, why do you ask?” a confused Bellamy said.
Myles played 3 games for the Storm this year and is not expected to be retained in the 45-man squad for next year.
