Cameron Munster Finger injury
Melbourne Storm have suffered the worst possible start to the new NRL season after gun halfback Cameron Munster was forced off during the first half of their clash with Parramatta.
Munster, who was subject to widespread speculation regarding his future last year, committed to the Storm and snubbed the Dolphins in a major boost for Craig Bellamy’s side.
But in scenes that will be of great concern to Storm fans, Munster had to come off at CommBank Stadium with what appeared to be a compound fracture to his hand, specifically to his wedding ring finger.
Shortly after he exited the main stage, the Eels scored the first try of the season through Will Penisini.
But Melbourne were able to patch up their star man and returned to the field for the second half, which saw the Storm triumph 16-12.
An eagle-eyed NRL fan spotted the extent of the gruesome injury and shared an image of Munster’s dislocated finger, which didn’t make for great viewing for Storm fans.
He immediately left the field in the arms of a trainer with his finger gruesomely hanging out in an unnatural position.
“Something has happened to Munster’s right hand. I think it might be a fracture to his finger, looks like he can’t get it back in,” Mick Ennis said on commentary when it happened.

Two of Melbourne Storm’s biggest NRL stars will be questioned by the NRL Integrity Unit after they were filmed with a white substance in a hotel room.
Leaked mobile phone footage emerged on Monday night showing Cameron Munster and Brandon Smith in a hotel room where the mystery substance can be spotted on a coffee table.
The 10 second clip seen by Daily Mail Australia shows Smith sitting in front of the coffee table with a white substance on it, along with a rolled up note and a card.
A shirtless Munster is seen standing behind his Storm teammate as a group of men in the room chat, with one slurring: ‘I’m happy everyone is here’.
A second clip emerged on Tuesday morning, showing Munster dancing on a table while holding what appears to be a small package containing white powder. ‘Settle down Munster,’ the clip is captioned.
It’s understood the footage was filmed hours after Storm lost to the Penrith Panthers in Saturday night’s preliminary final, ending their title defence.
The NRL’s second embarrassing scandal within 48 hours emerged as rugby league’s night of nights the Dally M Awards were held in Brisbane for the first time.
The pair attended the star-studded awards on Monday night where Smith won Dally M hooker of the year.
The pair were all smiles on the red carpet earlier on the night as Munster donned a patterned suit as he posed for photos with teammate Jesse Bromwich.
Munster played for the Storm’s NYC team in the earlier rounds of 2014, playing 9 games, scoring 7 tries and kicking 33 goals, before moving on to the Storm’s Queensland Cup team, Eastern Suburbs Tigers.
Munster received praise in 2022, with Rugby League Immortal Andrew Johns saying, “Munster is on his own, he’s in another stratosphere.
He’s gone beyond superstar status.” on his podcast Immortal Behaviour in the lead up to State of Origin.
Munster was again Man of the Match in Origin in the first game, which was a 16-10 QLD victory.
Munster drew comparisons to Wally Lewis from retired Queensland captain Paul Vautin after the match. “He’s getting closer to (Lewis) with the way he’s playing,” Vautin said. “He’s an instinctive player, as Wally Lewis was.
Wally wasn’t structured by any imagination, but he was instinctive, and so is Cameron Munster.” Andrew Johns agreed, “He’s just on another planet at the moment, no one is near him, you cannot coach against him because he is so unpredictable.
In round 21 of the 2022 NRL season, Munster, starting a game at fullback for the first time since the 2019 State of Origin series decider scored the second hat-trick of his career in Melbourne’s victory over the bottom placed Gold Coast Titans.
Following great speculation with the new 2023 Redcliffe Dolphins and uniting with Wayne Bennett, Munster pronounced his loyalty to Craig Bellamy and Melbourne Storm by inking a new long-term contract.
In October he was named in the Australia squad for the 2021 Rugby League World Cup.
