Storm centre Will Chambers during his side's qualifying final win over the Roosters.

Will Chambers is loving life on the Storm's right side and he puts that down to his relationship with his teammates, particularly Young Tonumaipea. 

The two were instrumental in the Storm's 34-16 win over the Titans on Sunday night, with the duo scoring three tries between them.

There is a lot of confidence amongst the pair and the veteran presence of a couple of other teammates makes for a good combination.

"We started a bit together last year as well [Young and I], and it's good. Young's very confident at the moment and he's enjoying his footy, and it's always good to have young kids come through, it makes me feel a bit younger as well," Chambers said. 

"It's good that it's all going well, we've got Cooper [Cronk] as our leader that controls everything, and Kevin Proctor is there also and he helps us, so everything's working well at the moment."

Chambers has made a brilliant start to the season, and said that it was a nerve settler to finally get on the scoreboard. 

"It was good to finally score, you get a bit nervous at the start of the year if you don’t get across, but second game in and to get a couple of tries was good," Chambers said.

Not only is the 27-year-old scoring, but his running game has been very dangerous too.

Chambers currently ranks 12th in the league for running metres with 276, including a game high 166 metres in the win over the Titans. He was also the only player in the game to have more than one line break.

A big factor in Chambers' play is his freedom to feel out the attack and make his own plays, something that he owes to Craig Bellamy and the belief he has instilled in the centre. 

"I just see whatever's in front of me, I sort of just play off the cuff at times, and Craig's good with that. He always tells me to just back myself and believe in myself," Chambers said.

The biggest news to come out of the weekend is still the health of Storm veteran Billy Slater. Slater was withdrawn from the Storm team before the match on Sunday, and is now required to have surgery to assess the extent of his shoulder injury.

Along with the rest of the Storm squad, Chambers is anxiously awaiting updated news surrounding the star fullback.

"He's obviously devastated, he'll go in sometime this week and get an operation done, and then we'll go from there," Chambers said.

"It's disappointing for everyone else around the club as well, Billy is a big part of this club and has been for a long time, and it's very disappointing. Everyone's just got their fingers crossed that we'll get some good news over the next couple of days."
