Kearns unhappy with Storm's
"modest" offer

NSW State of Origin forward Robbie Kearns is still awaiting a reasonable approach from Melbourne after receiving only a modest offer to stay with the National Rugby League club.

At 31, Kearns is in the twilight of his career but is enjoying one of his best-ever seasons, helping the Blues retain Origin supremacy with their series victory over Queensland. But, despite wanting to remain at Melbourne, Kearns' manager says the veteran prop is only a 50-50 proposition.

George Mimis says the Storm have offered his client an unacceptable one-year contract, with an opportunity of another season's extension. Kearns thinks he has at least one and possibly two good seasons left in him.
