The Bulldogs have turned down an approach from the Melbourne Storm over the possibility of signing Josh Addo-Carr on loan for the rest of the season.

According to SMH, Canterbury-Bankstown powerbrokers have turned down a hurricane request to bring their former flyer to the club to cover the growing risk section.

Craig Bellamy’s side have lost four in a row and the head coach refused to blame a number of key injuries for his side’s form following the defeat by the Rabbitohs.

“With all due respect, I don’t care what people put it in or what they think is going on,” Bellamy said.

“These guys are out and we’re going to pick a team and obviously we don’t want injuries, but we have guys in our team and we’re not going to take them out of the way.”

According to reports, the Hurricanes were looking to sign Ado-Carr for the remainder of 2022 before returning to the Bulldogs to see out the final two years of his contract.

Bulldogs supremo Phil Gould said ‘Foxx’ meant a lot to the club’s supporters and allowed him to make the short move.

The Melbourne club have made no secret of their desire to acquire talent in the backfield – with stars such as Xavier Coates, Ryan Papenhuyzen, Reimis Smith and George Jennings up front.

The club also played for Tigers player Adam Duehy, teammate Dayne Lawrie and Titans young gun Jayden Campbell.

Tigers powerbrokers are said to be considering letting Lawrie go for the rest of 2022 if the Storm follow through after the initial inquiry.

The 23-year-old’s future remains up in the air, but the club hopes to draw on the knowledge of rugby league’s best coaching minds in Melbourne.
