Storm in a teacup: Bromwich denies superstar feud

Melbourne Storm vice-captain Jesse Bromwich has refuted any talk of a rift between skipper Cameron Smith and star playmaker Cameron Munster.

Smith and Munster appeared to exchange heated words following a botched final play attempt during the Storm's 20-18 loss to the Sharks on Friday night.

But Bromwich said the altercation between the pair was nothing too serious and that such an exchange was the norm in Melbourne.

"That kind of stuff happens all the time here," Bromwich said on Tuesday.

"If something happens and we don’t agree with it we are happy to give advice and pass it on to other players.

"That is just another day here, that stuff happens, and we move on. I have seen them do that at training before plenty of times and no one has said anything.

"If they are showing that passion and that willingness to compete, we are more than happy for that kind of stuff to happen."

Storm v Eels - Magic Round

The on-field disagreement between Smith and Munster wasn't the only issue that Bromwich was forced to diffuse on Tuesday, with the Kiwi also stepping in to deny reports that centre Curtis Scott wanted out of the club.

Scott was dropped by the Storm a fortnight ago and reports have surfaced in the last week that the Origin hopeful was being shopped around to opposition clubs.

Bromwich refuted these claims and said Scott remained a long-term prospect in Melbourne as he continues to improve as a player.

"That’s just rumours. From what I know and, I am quite close with Curtis, he is quite happy here,I know for a fact we want to have him around here," Bromwich said.

Match Highlights: Sharks v Storm

"He took having a rest quite harshly, but that is just him as he is a competitor.

The Storm have now lost two of their last three matches and will be looking to reverse that trend when they head to Brisbane to take on the in-form Eels during the NRL Magic Round this weekend.

The clash with the Eels will also see Storm veteran Will Chambers play his 200th match for the club and Bromwich expects his teammates to rise for the occasion.

"Player milestones are very important to us and we want to go back to playing well for our teammate," Bromwich said.

"He is someone that a lot of the boys look up to ... you look at the Tests and the Origin games and all the good games he has played at international level.

"He is highly respected in this group and hopefully we can turn up on Saturday night against the Eels and put on a good performance for him in front of his family."
