Halfback labelled as “one of the grubbiest players in the game”

Rugby League mistake

Queensland and Melbourne halfback Cameron Munster has been in the public eye recently.

In Origin I this year Munster kicked opposing forward Liam Martin in the ribs before kicking out at Warriors captain Roger Tuivasa-Sheck whilst playing for the Storm.

And, the past weekend was no different with the Maroons star appearing to make contact with Blues captain James Tedesco with his knees during State of Origin game two on Sunday.

That has prompted claims by senior journalist, Phil ‘Buzz’ Rothfield that Munster is “one of the grubbier players in the game”, he told Fox Sports.

“I think he’s become one of the grubbier players in the game,” Rothfield said.

“The way he dropped his knees into Tedesco towards the end of last night’s game was really, really ordinary.

“If he had knocked Tedesco out… that was unnecessary contact. If that had knocked Tedesco out… that would have put him out for the year with another concussion.

“But it’s not just this one incident with Cameron Munster. I think he’s got a chip on his shoulder. This isn’t an overnight issue with him.

“He’s got to pull his head in, Cameron Munster. He is a great player, but he’s got to get off the angry pills and accept the fact that you’re not in the Storm system winning 12 games in a row every week, and when the back’s against the wall like they are with the Maroons at the moment, don’t do that crap.”
