LIVE: Munster’s grim admission after heavy loss

Superstar Melbourne five-eighth Cameron Munster has made a grim admission moments after the heavy loss to Penrith, saying the Storm “looked like an under-12s team”.

The Storm was without megastar fullback Ryan Papenhuyzen and gun halfback Jahrome Hughes, but Munster didn’t make excuses after the 32-6 loss to the reigning premiers.

“We were poor,” Munster told Cameron Smith in a Nine interview.

“Didn’t really care who we had out. Still had a good enough team to give the Panthers a shake.

“We can whinge about the weather or whinge about the slippery ball, but we were poor tonight and that’s not us, especially against a good side (in) Penrith.

“We have to go back to the drawing board and play a lot better against the Cowboys, otherwise it’ll be the same result.

“Pretty disappointing result, and my performance, as well.

“We kept getting into the pressure kind of footy we wanted to play, but we just kept giving them piggybacks and letting them out of their own end. When you’re doing that against Penrith they’re going to make you pay… when Penrith’s got 60 per cent of the ball they’re going to put a lot of points on you, and they did tonight.

“We were poor. We looked like an under-12s team.

“We need to go back to the drawing board.

“I can’t wait for next week. Far out.”
