With the 2005 season ready to kick start in just over a month (the Storm v Newcastle 13th March at Olympic Park), this is another exciting step for Bellamy.
�I knew there was something brewing when I was overseas�, Bellamy said.
�Now, it�s official I�m looking forward to working with elite players again, it�s definitely a step up the ladder for me and being raised in the country as a kid, it�s a great honour�.
Bellamy replaces Ricky Stuart who has already been appointed coach of the NSW Blues for the Origin series.
Also up for review, the ARL will meet in a fortnight to confirm both the coach and the International schedule for the coming year.
