CAMERON Munster has a nervous wait after suffering a knee in jury in Melbourne Storm's 42-24 Holden Cup win over Penrith Panthers at AAMI Park, Melbourne on Saturday.

Munster was yesterday awaiting the results of scans on his right knee after a collision while kicking the ball in general play during the match.

The 19-year-old left the field immediately and was yesterday getting X-rays at Imaging @ Olympic Park in Melbourne.

When contacted by The Morning Bulletin, Munster said he was still awaiting results.

"I'm not quite sure what's wrong with it, but will let you know soon," he said.

"I hurt it on the fifth tackle kicking. I just clashed with someone."

Munster claimed the 2013 Intrust Super Cup rookie of the year after a standout season with the Central Queensland Capras and continued that form in 2014 with the Storm.

After preseason trials, Munster got his first taste of the top grade during the NRL Auckland Nines pre-season tournament.
