Craig Bellamy laughs off Richmond clash strip talk

Craig Bellamy respects history as much as anyone but when it comes to grand finals, he says he would play in any colour.

Bellamy has won grand finals in lime green Canberra jerseys as a player and the Storm's navy and purple as a coach but he said the jumper colour meant little compared with playing for a premiership.

"They can throw us in orange jumpers if they like, if we are playing a grand final who cares?" Bellamy said on Thursday.

"We are a club just 20 years old, the Tigers would be over 100 years old, I would imagine, so older guys would have come through the club, played for the club and they wouldn't have been in a grand final for a while so I can understand they want to play in their traditional colours, all clubs would.

"But if they said if you want to play in a grand final you have to play in these colours, if you don't play in them colours you ain't in a grand final then I think I know what choice they would make. But that is up to the AFL."

Bellamy said he had given next to no thought on what colour the Storm will wear when they play either Brisbane Broncos or Penrith Panthers in a preliminary final at AAMI Park on Friday week.
