'He'll be the Australian captain': Legend's shining appraisal


//

Rabbitohs youngster Cameron Murray will be captaining NSW within five years and Australia soon after.

That’s the word from rugby league immortal Andrew Johns who has offered a shining appraisal of the 21-year-old after his heroics steered South Sydney to an unbelievable last-ditch comeback over the Cowboys on Saturday night.

Murray has been a standout among the fresh crop of talent already headlining the league this season, earning himself his first representative call-up as part of Brad Fittler’s back-to-back Origin winning Blues and inviting the call from Johns who worked with him closely in camp.

“If there was one player I was impressed with in the [Blues] camp, it was Cam Murray,” he told Wide Wold of Sports.

“I think within the next five years he’ll be captaining NSW and down the track he’ll be the Australian captain.

“He is so impressive, well educated, speaks well and…one great sort too. Cam Murray, he’s up at the top.”

Murray has challenged perceptions of the lock’s traditional role in a football team with his athleticism and urgency to move forward.

It’s a trait that has seen the Rabbitohs build facets of their game around the relentless play-style, much as the Cowboys predicate themselves on barnstorming forward Jason Taumololo says Maroons great Darren Lockyer.

“He’s such an athlete and I reckon pound for pound probably one of the strongest in the competition,” He told Wide World of Sports.

“He’s like an energizer bunny, he gets out there and he just lifts the tempo of the game. And he’s got skill too.

“He got out there and set up a try last night late in the game[against the Cowboys] and backed up for his own. But its his work when he gets the ball and gets into the ground - the urgency to get up and play the ball – the Rabbitohs just play off the back of that.

“A bit like Taumololo does for the Cowboys, that’s what he provides for the Rabbitohs.”
