Former Queensland and Australian fullback Billy Slater is burning up the training paddock for the Melbourne Storm.

Slater has been out of the game for two years after consecutive shoulder injuries  came close to putting him out of the game permanently.

Storm coach Craig Bellamy (pictured) knows all too well what happened the last time Slater attempted a comeback and is extremely wary of rushing the 33 year old back into full contact training before his shoulder is ready.
