Queensland star Cameron Munster is still haunted by the creepy look. Storm captain Cameron Smith flashed him in the insane last minute of Melbourne’s Grand Final win.
Munster’s reveal of former NRL player Justin Horo’s podcast reveals the truth of the dynamics between the storm’s two biggest stars after years of rumors about their relationship.
It’s no secret that Smith and Munster are the club’s original odd couple, with Smith being the polar opposite of Munster’s famous Larrikin party boy personality.

Their differences have never been more evident than at the last minute of Penrith’s frantic comeback when Munster told his captain to surprise the Panthers with a quick nudge from the restart.
The Panthers came up with four tries in the second half and left the storm hanging forever after the playmaker Jahrome Hughes was sent to the sin container.
The option would have given the storm a chance to regain possession – but it would have been more likely that Penrith would have driven through a disorganized line of defense with only 60m of possession in order to score an attempt that would likely bring the game to the golden point would have.
Munster has revealed the look Smith gave him in response to his suggestion is the stuff of nightmares.
“You should have heard what I said to Smithy,” Munster began on the podcast.
“I told Smithy to leave for a minute. I thought it wasn’t a bad game.
“Just try to turn it off and get to the ball so you don’t give them time to move the ball.
“Smithy looked and I said, ‘What the hell are you talking about?’
“And I went, ‘oh yeah, nah nah, s goddamn idea buddy. Just kick it for a long time.
“I’m almost damned myself when he looked at me. He literally looked into my soul and said ‘buddy get fucked honestly’. ”
The storm eventually long kicked the ball and stopped Penrith deep in their own half to win the grand final.
It is hardly the first time that Smith has replaced Munster.
It was only earlier this year that Smith’s reaction to Munster raised eyebrows at the end of a shock loss to Cronulla.
After Munster was caught in the final game of the game, Smith was filmed giving Munster a few select words before the star tossed the ball away in frustration at five and eight.
At the time Fox League NRL 360 host Paul Kent said it showed the brutal honesty that defines Munster and Smith’s at times spiky relationship.
“Munster was tackled with the last game and the game is over before Cameron Smith walks in and Munster knocks the ball away,” Kent said in May.
“Paul Gallen said it was the first time he’d seen this from these guys and it surprised him.
“The Storm are often greeted for their open honesty with one another.
“One of the most brutal things you can have is a Storm video session.
“They basically come in and rip each other off but they have the maturity as a group to say the criticism is about making me a better player.
“I think that’s what matters and that’s great, but when we say we don’t see this often.”
Smith has now left thinking about his future and is left without a contract for the 2021 season while Munster has been brought back to life from his wild week of grand graduation with teammates to help Queensland deliver one of the biggest surprises in the state overcome the origins of the series opener in Adelaide.
