during the NRL Qualifying Final match between the Melbourne Storm and the South Sydney Rabbitohs at AAMI Park on September 7, 2018 in Melbourne, Australia.

Cronulla have emerged as one of the major players in luring Cameron Munster away from Melbourne Storm.

According to The Australian, the Sharks contacted Munster’s management last season and were told that they were one of only three clubs he would consider playing for beyond 2019.

The other two clubs appear to be Melbourne and the Sydney Roosters.

Munster has a year remaining on his current contract with the Storm, who are set to table a multi-million dollar deal to keep him at the club.

However the prospect of playing full back is believed to be attracting Munster to the Sharks.

Sharks coach Shane Flanagan is a known admirer of the 24-year-old and spent yesterday explaining the challenge of shutting down the Melbourne star.

“Last time we played against them he had a hand in one or two tries, including one from the kick,” Flanagan said in a press conference.

“Sometimes, when things look like they are all shut down, he has really good footwork and a fend. He can create something from nothing. So he will creep across the field … just find space and push his nose through. We have to be good on that.”

“He has had a fantastic year and he is one of the players we have spoken about consistently all week. He can stick to structure and when he is most dangerous, it is when he is doing something off the top of his head.”

    • It’s all the hormones in the chicken feed out Bondi Junction way pedro and the limited gene pool which leads to inbreeding and causes the chooks to grow two heads. From the evidence at hand, looking at Woody and Russ, two heads are definitely NOT better than one! Bahahahahahahahahaha 😂😂😂😂😂😂

      • Reg, Russ is 1 of yours buddy.
        He’s so proud of being a Bunnies supporter he tells us every line of every post.
        Now you go and accuse him of being a Rooster’s supporter, well that’s got to hurt.
        Anyway, welcome back.
        Ned.

        • Russ doesn’t know if he’s Arthur or Martha, it’s part of his Norman Bates complex (Roosters that pretend to be Rabbits and think that nobody will notice).

          Btw mighty, Phil from Punxsutawney say “Hi, and don’t forget to duck!”. 😉

    • We all know one place south of Cronulla where Munster definitely won’t end up or indeed even want to go unless he likes his season over before it gets serious or fancies being played in the back row of course. At least he’d be paid way overs like everyone else at the joint I suppose. Chokers….

      • Haha, once again showing your lack of mental prowess. We have Widdop so why would we need Munster (as good as he is). You on the other hand have the softest 5/8 in the comp and well….. Dugan. But like I said, why would he want to go to a bunch of druggie losers like the sharks.
