Hill denies rumours of a release

Melbourne five-eighth Scott Hill has expressed his disappointment at having to address rumours of quitting the Storm despite being contracted until the end of 2003.

“I don't know how these things have come about but I am here for the remainder of this year and all of next year at the very least,” explained Hill.

The 25-year-old Australian lock was surprised to hear stories linking his name to an early contractual release from the Storm.

“It's disappointing to here those sorts of things particularly when it's my name being thrown up there. I guess being the only Australian representative player in the club at the moment it's particularly disappointing as I'm an easy target,” Hill said.

“When I sign a contract I fulfil my contract and I'm looking forward to being here next year. I'm committed to try and work hard to get back in to a position to make the semi finals this year - that is all that's on my mind at the moment. I'm looking forward to next year if we don't make the finals this year.

“I want to reassure the fans, members and everyone associated with the club that I'm well and truly committed to the Storm for the remainder of this year and I'm looking forward to being here next year as well.”
