A World Cup campaign could be on the horizon for Cameron Munster after Kangaroos coach Mal Meninga declared him in contention for a call up to the national team.
With 100 days to go until Australia kick off the tournament against England at AAMI Park, Meninga admitted that Munster's performance in the Origin decider had put him well and truly on the radar.
The rising Storm star was one of Queensland's best, providing two try assists and looking like a Maroons veteran rather than a debutant.
Now a green and gold jersey could well be within reach for the 22-year-old.
“He’s a quality player, playing in the Storm spine is an ideal situation, but he can play centre, he can play fullback, I reckon he can play anywhere,” Meninga told the Herald Sun.
“His versatility will be a bonus for rep sides going forward and if it’s at the end of the year and he finishes the year off well then he’s a chance, definitely.”
“We put things into perspective, because of the way her performed in Origin, he’s certainly going to be looked at and he does play that versatile role.
“He’s in the picture, whether we pick him as a six (five-eighth) or he gets considered as a bench player who can play a number of positions.”
