Craig Bellamy, Storm super coach, has denied that he is one of the greatest league coaches of all time, despite having a third premiership and a fifth grand win.

Bellamy is seen as many to be up with Jack Gibson as one of the rugby greatest coaches, but the title doesn't sit well with him. Bellamy has said that it's a bit surreal and a little embarrassing when mentioned alongside Gibson. I wouldn't tie up the bootlaces of Gibson. I have been fortunate and have many great talents to coach, Bellamy added. Bellamy has managed the Storm to massive grand finals in 2006, 2007, 2008, 2009, 2012, 2016, 2017, 2018, and 2020. The Storm has also won three official titles in 2012, 2017, and 2020; the 2007 and 2009 titles were taken away from them because of the salary cap scandal.
He averages a grand final in every second year in his tremendous Storm coaching career that started in 2003 and has seen him got the victory in 327 of 472 matches with a 69.3 win percentage.
In the meantime, the 61-year-old thinks that the caliber of players at his disposal that he has the privilege to Coach deserves more credit than himself. They have been more important in the wheel of Storm's success than me. I have been delighted and lucky to go for the ride with them. I know I have played my role somehow, but we wouldn't have had any success without them. It's nothing but a greet an honor to manage them, Bellamy concluded.
Bellamy has only one year to run on his contract in Storm, and it's alleged that he will take up the role of a coaching director at Melbourne or the Broncos when his head coaching career finishes. For some, Bellamy is a GOAT already.
