Bellamy’s belief in Munster

When a young player is playing well in a certain position few would think of moving him from there.

However even as Cameron Munster was setting the NRL alight at fullback last season, Craig Bellamy knew he had bigger plans in mind for the rising star.

We are now four games into operation Munster – The Five-Eighth.

So far, so good with Storm’s new No.6 providing four try assists, five line breaks and a current ranking of No.1 at the Club for offloads.

It has been a bright start to a new role for Munster.

“What he has done in the five-eighth role has been outstanding for a bloke who hasn’t played there too much,” Bellamy said.

“He has done a wonderful job and continues to do a wonderful job.

“What Cameron’s best position is I’m not quite sure but he is doing one hell of a job playing that five-eighth role at the moment.

“I think he has only played four games there and two or three of those times he has been our best player. He is doing an outstanding job and I think he will turn into one-hell of a five-eighth.”

Time will tell but early signs suggest the Storm master coach could be right on the money.

We return to AAMI Park on June 2. Watch us take on the Knights!
