South Sydney Rabbitohs vs Melbourne Storm Match Up


Cody Walker and Cameron Munster are both Origin quality halves boasting some of the best offensive games in the competition. Despite both forming as integral pieces in their team’s success, Munster and Walker boast different offensive styles. 

Rabbitohs five-eighth Walker possesses the unbelievable ability to snuff out any hole or weakness in the defence. Boasting one of the cleverest short passing and kicking game in the competition, he possesses the speed, footwork and sheer unbelievable ability to open up a chance from anywhere. 

On the other side, Munster is a big-bodied half who thrives upon the Storm’s ability to beat their opposition to the ground. Playing behind arguably the best pack in the comp, Munster’s greatest strength is his running game built upon his career at fullback.
