After fighting an evening in the Queensland No. 1 jersey, Storm raised eighth Cameron Munster in the air and said, "Play me everywhere."
"I just love playing footy, mate – love playing with my friends, love playing for Storm, and especially for this great state of Queensland," said Munster in the maroons at ANZ Stadium after NSW claimed the 2019 Holden State of Origin – series.
"Wherever they want to play me, I will try to do the best I can. Whatever the job means – No. 1, No. 6 or No. 14 I just know I'm going there and doing my best "
Against the Blues, he made 111 meters before the break and finished with 19 points for 185 meters and seven tackle breaks – as a wing defender.
Every time he had the ball in his hand, he had the NSW defenders on the hook.
Munster played six of his seven Origin games at five-eighth. He won a premiere for Storm at five-eighth in 2017 – a year in which he played six games on wing defender and 14 on five-eighth.
His first outing as Maroons No.1 had his moments and ended with some self-examination after full time.
"The lungs really hurt there at some point, I was very happy with the way I played," Munster said.
"Coming from the field … and losing … I keep thinking that I could have done more.
"That is something I always think of after a loss." Could I have done more? "It is something I really hate because I want to be the player who leaves everything on the field.
"I feel like I did that tonight – but with the loss I ask myself again.
"I'm going back to the clubland now and trying to play a good footy for Storm."
And we are back to the original questions. Does Storm Munster have to play at No. 6 or No. 1?
"It's hard, we have some really good players coming through the Storm like Ryan Papenhuyzen, Jahrome Hughes and they're doing very well at the back," Munster said.
"We have a few nrs 6s like Billy Walters, so there are a few good options.
"I'll do what is best for the team."
The question can be answered for the remainder of the regular Telstra Premiership season, but Queensland fans will like the debate in 12 months, the number of which must be on Munster & # 39; s sweater.
"We have Kalyn back, which will be another plus, a new incentive for us. If Kevvie decides to get me again [in 2020], we will just continue."
