Melbourne coach Craig Bellamy says it's disappointing the NRL hasn't done more to help the Storm keep winger Marika Koroibete.

The Fijian flyer is poised to switch codes by signing a deal with Super Rugby's Melbourne Rebels and Bellamy says the Storm simply can't match the deal being offered by the Australian Rugby Union.

Bellamy says while the NRL has talked about helping clubs recruit from other codes, more could be done to prevent losing talent to other codes in the first place.
