Cameron Munster, are you okay?

The Melbourne Storm star was on the receiving end of one of the most textbook tackles you will see from Manly hard-hitter Jorge Taufua.

The veteran Manly winger, who isn't afraid of dropping the shoulder, may have laid on the hit of the season after stopping Munster on his way to setting up a crucial first-half try in Saturday's Battle of Brookvale.

Melbourne center Justin Olam's evasive footwork saw the Papua New Guinean escape a number of Manly defenders to find open space thirty meters from Manly's line.

He wasn't going to beat Sea Eagles winger Reuben Garrick approaching however, so floated an pass to Munster who was in support on the inside.

[–] Harry-ManlyManly-Warringah Sea Eagles 5 points6 points7 points 1 month ago (4 children). Overall I'm happy. We're always pretty unorganised in round 1. Storm are always fit for the first game of the year and that showed with 20 Can somebody please tell me what Taufua offers other than big hits ?

But before Munster could even blink the Origin star was airborne due to the force of Taufua's shoulder.

Munster should be commended for the way he quickly rose from the turf and played the ball, but Taufua's tackle came at a crucial time for his side.

Trailing 12-0 and with Manly out on their feet to try and stop a hot Storm side, Taufua's crunching hit on Munster put a hard stop to their opponent's momentum.

It was the highlight of tough opening half for the top-four hopefuls, who devastatingly lost their superstar fullback Tom Trbojevic to a suspected pectoral injury in the sixth minute.
