CENTRAL Queensland Capras star Cameron Munster capped off his meteoric rise in 2013 last night, collecting the Queensland Intrust Super Cup Rookie of the Year title.

Joined by proud Capras coach Jason Hetherington, Munster accepted the Carbine Club Rookie of the Year trophy at a ceremony at Brisbane City Hall.

Bound for the Melbourne Storm in 2014, the CQU Norths Chargers junior swept all before him in the category after starring at fullback and five-eighth for the Capras in 2013.

Munster featured in all 22 matches for the Capras this season after making his debut against the Northern Pride in the closing rounds of 2012.

An elated Capras operations manager Walson Carlos said Munster was a deserving winner.

"As a club we're very proud of him," Carlos said.

"He's come from nowhere at the start of the season. It probably shows the talent that we have in the region, but ... he's worked really hard to get himself up to that standard.

"He's an outstanding talent and I'd love to see him go on and play NRL."

Munster, who celebrates his 19th birthday next Friday, finished fourth in the polling for the Queensland Cup Player of the Year award, which went to Easts Tigers five-eighth Cody Walker.

Propelling the Tigers to a finals berth, Walker ended the regular season with a flurry of votes to secure the prestigious title after missing the opening seven matches.

With 25 votes, Walker pipped Souths Logan front rower Mat Pitman (23 votes), Rockhampton product and Wynnum Manly Seagulls hooker Jake Granville (19), Munster (16) and Petero Civoniceva (14).
