Queensland coach Kevin Walters has declared that Storm star Cameron Munster is likely to line up at five-eighth in this year's Origin series.
Despite Munster expressing interest to take over from Billy Slater's role at fullback for the Maroons, Walter believes the 24-year old is more effective alongside Daly Cherry-Evans in the halves.
“There’s no doubt about that,” Walters told Former Origin Greats website.
“Daly and Munster showed their worth in game three.
“With Cameron, he doesn’t realise just how good he can be at representative level.
“He has been outstanding for us in the five-eighth role.
“I see Munster as a 10-year Origin player.”
Munster and Cherry-Evans were both instrumental in last year's game three when they were paired up in the halves for the first time, helping guide Queensland to their only win of the series.
Walters will also have a big decision to make on returning playmaker Michael Morgan, who has been sidelined since June with a biceps injury.
But the Maroons clipboard holder maintained that the selection dilemma was a healthy one to have as Queensland look to avenge their second Origin loss from the last 13 years.
“We didn’t miss last year’s series by much and we lost a wealth of experience we relied so heavily on,” Walters said.
“I think we’ve got the right mix of players to do well and win the series. “We didn’t get it right last year so it’s important the players learn from it and get things right this year.”
