Cameron Munster stars for Melbourne Storm as Penrith Panthers held scoreless for first time in seven years


Each performed beneath Inexperienced throughout his time as Queensland coach in final 12 months’s State of Origin collection. Munster was Inexperienced’s five-eighth. On this night time, he was Bellamy’s fullback.

He is without doubt one of the Melbourne mentor’s nice luxuries. The competitors’s premier five-eighth and can put on No.6 for Mal Meninga’s Australian crew on the World Cup later this 12 months. However so spectacular is Munster within the No.1 that former teammate Cameron Smith thinks he might be a high three fullback within the recreation.


“We’ll in all probability take a look at it on our opposition, on what we predict is the easiest way to make use of Munster and the easiest way to make use of Nick [Meaney] and their strengths. I’m not fairly certain we’ll truly follow Munster at fullback on a regular basis,” Bellamy stated.

“We’ll have a little bit of a chat about that with the leaders, our halves, and see what the coaches suppose. It’s been useful with [Ryan Papenhuyzen] being out and Nick lacking every week. We’re pretty to fortunate to have him. He’s simply such a competitor, he competes in every part at coaching and he competes in every part in a recreation.”

The premiership frontrunners have been closely depleted. Nathan Cleary, Jarome Luai and James Fisher-Harris are all sidelined whereas Charlie Staines was known as in to fill a void left at fullback by Dylan Edwards.

Now coach Ivan Cleary is sweating on the health of Liam Martin within the run to the finals after the Penrith back-rower was left on crutches with a suspected syndesmosis damage on his left ankle suffered through the second half.

“Credit score to the Storm, I assumed they performed effectively. They have been very determined, in all probability a bit greater than we have been on the finish of the day,” Cleary stated.

“I felt like there some mixture points. Whenever you play a very good crew and a defensive unit which can be completely dedicated, that reveals up. There have been some good classes in there tonight for us. It’s a very good lesson for our youthful guys. It’s simply disappointing we couldn’t get some factors on the board.”
