Six years ago, Canterbury Bulldogs didn’t recruit the Origin star, Cameron Munster, who walked home with the Queensland Cup Rookie of the Year award in 2013. Melbourne Storms was fortunate enough to offer a remunerative salary cap and contract worth that Munster became smooth eyesight on the scoreboard.
He grew a fan base with his stunning moustache too. They even created a petition to compel Munster to grow back and keep the mustache, when he shaved it off. Let’s know how Cameron Munster emerged as a favourite NRL player accompanied by his net worth, earnings, injury, relationships, and wiki-details.
Contracts, net worth, and earnings
After winning the Queensland Cup Rookie of the Year, the Central Queensland head coach Jason Hetherington thought of opening his way to Munster in Canterbury Bulldogs. But the club didn’t show any interest in the rookie player. Hence, Munster, known for his stunning mustache, signed a contract with Melbourne Storms till the 2015 season. However, within his debut in the Queensland club team, Storm extended his contract for another two-year term.
Initially, he filled in the position of an injured player, Billy Slater, and won over Gold Coast Titans as he scored a hat trick with a 36-14 win. Soon, he took over the QAS Emerging Origin squad, full-time fullback position, and a contract worth of $2 million till the 2019 season.
When Billy Slater came back with recovery, he shifted from fullback to five-eight position back and again in 2017. The same year, he broke his jaw while playing as a ‘Five-Eight’ against Brisbane Broncos; however, he sustained the injury and came back strongest as ever. How could Melbourne Storm under look Munster who proved his abilities in the 2018 World Club Challenge and 2018 NRL Grand Final? Thus, the club secured him till the end of the 2023 season.
At the same time, Munster had no intention of leaving Storm anytime soon. Well, it is the pioneer club for him, which let him play on the first go. No doubt, Storm has managed to keep up millions of figures on its contract deal for Munster. Definitely, the origin star has a hefty net worth saved for a rainy day.
Loves his girlfriend, Bianca McMahon
When he was away from mates and families during the pandemic lockdown, he leaned his shoulder on his girlfriend, Bianca McMahon. Additionally, McMahon’s family helped him with his clothes since he had only packed “two-and-a-half weeks worth of gear”, during the strict lockdown measures in Victoria.
“Luckily enough for me my partner’s mum and dad live down the road, so I was getting them to wash my clothes every week.”
So, he couldn’t stop himself praising his partner/girlfriend, McMahon on social media. He admired McMahon’s support despite her own struggles.
“Your support through everything this year has been second to none. You have your own problems and you flush them down the drain just to hear me whine about my performances each and every week, not only having to put up with me 10 hours a day, so thank you…”
Mother saved him from mishaps
26 years old Cameron Munster was born on 13 September 1994 in Rockhampton, Queensland, Australia. An Aussie player, Munster is a proud son who has always held his head high with parents Steve and Deborah Munster with an award. And his sister, Danielle Munster completes the family.
Once, the NRL player recalled how his mother stood up for him while he got into a brutal conflict with Ben Hunt. Otherwise, he would have packed his bags from Melbourne Storm.
“I had my mum ring me crying telling me that the Storm was going to kick me out of the club, That’s when it pretty much changed for me when my mum was crying and said to me, ‘what are you doing? This is not like you. Why are you doing this?’
“If you are going to be like this you might as well change your last name because I don’t want you to be associated with us.
“That was a crazy time for me and I know my mum was overreacting and she probably wouldn’t say that again hopefully mum.”
He is over a six-foot-tall lad who has an honor of the 2017 NRL Grand Final and 2020 Grand Finals with Melbourne Storms.
