Storm’s right fit for rookie says Capras operations manager
FORMER Central Queensland Capras hooker Walson Carlos believes Cameron Munster would be hard pressed to find a better NRL club to join.
Carlos, now the Capras operations manager, said rugby league's standing in Melbourne would help ease Munster into an NRL system.
"He's going to a great club. It's a good club to focus on your footy because there's not a lot of the spotlight on rugby league in Melbourne," he said.
"But, you're not a superstar down there. You see blokes that go down to Sydney can lose their way a little bit, similarly in Brisbane.
"They've also got the big three (Smith, Slater and Cronk) there, who are very clean-living blokes who stay out of controversy."
Melbourne Storm assistant coach Anthony Seibold, a former Comets player, has been working with Munster in the past few months to get the 19-year-old up to speed ahead of the 2014 NRL pre-season.
"I'm pretty nervous about training to tell the truth. I've heard a lot about pre-season training being tough, so that's pretty scary, but I'm looking forward to it," the Capras' 2013 Player of the Year said.
"Anthony has been sending me pre-season drills and programs to try and stay fit so that's been a big help (and) he's been keeping in contact with me to see how I'm going."
