Season Review: Cameron Munster

The main talking point leading into this season was whether Cameron Munster would be able to become the five-eighth Craig Bellamy believed he could be.

Now that we have time to reflect it is fair to say he answered that question rather emphatically.

He matched halves partner Cooper Cronk for line break assists (20) while producing eight himself. That total of 28 line break involvements saw him ranked second in the entire competition.

Munster grew into the ideal playmaker, proving to be a headache for opposition defences as they constantly played a guessing game whether he would choose to beat them with a run or a pass.  

His combination on the left side with Will Chambers, Curtis Scott and Josh Addo-Carr improved with every game and received praised from Craig Bellamy after the Grand Final.

A broken jaw in Round 3 saw him miss three games but it did little to stop him and by July, just four months after making his No.6 debut, the 23-year-old was an Origin debutant.

Now a Green and Gold debut awaits after he earned selection in the Australian World Cup squad alongside six of his Storm teammates.

He also finished third in the Storm Player of the Year voting, confirming that the 2017 season will be remembered as one in which Munster grew from rising talent to emerging star.
