The St George Illawarra Dragons have entered the race to secure Cameron Munster’s signature for the 2024 season.
Munster could be the final piece of the puzzle for the Dragons and would form a formidable halves pairing alongside Ben Hunt.

The Dragons join the Dolphins and Broncos who are also chasing the Storm superstar, who would have to take a significant pay cut to stay in Melbourne.
“I know they reached out to Braith Anasta, Munster’s manager, late last week about it,” Phil Rothfield noted on 2KY’s Big Sports Breakfast.
“They believe by having Ben Hunt, who has played a lot of football alongside Munster in Australian and Queensland teams, it will work in the club’s favour. He’d be a great signing.

“Ben Hunt is getting to the back end of his career and while he is one of the most in-form players in the comp at the moment, he’s not going to be around forever, probably another two to three years and Munster could play his career out there.
“(Munster) is bumping up his price tag up every day. There’s no question he’s going to go north of $1.2 million and wherever he finishes up, he’s going to be a great signing.”
The Storm have reportedly offered a three-year deal worth $750,000 per season, almost half a million dollars less than Munster can attract elsewhere.
