For a young man who attacks the game with frantic abandon it is perhaps no surprise that Cameron Munster's path towards Queensland Origin selection first began at a Rockhampton school by the name of Berserker Street.

That's where Guy Williams first came into contact with the skinny yet cocky little upstart who from his formative years in the game through until his Origin elevation has been unafraid to challenge authority.

Prior to joining the Brisbane Broncos in 2009, Williams was working at the Rockhampton PCYC and in 2005 was called in to coach the Berserker Street State School under-11s, soon discovering their best player was a kid called Cameron Munster.

Seven years later after stints with the Broncos and in France Williams returned to the Central Queensland Capras at the end of 2012 and discovered that Munster had developed to the point where at 17 years of age he had been called into the Capras' senior squad.

"My younger brother Brent was playing for the Capras at the time and I remember going to training and saying to him, 'What's Munster doing here?'" Williams tells NRL.com.

"And he told me that he'd been killing it for Norths in the local league. It really surprised me but once we started training you could see that there was just something about him.

"He started out in the 18s then the 20s and then A Grade and he was braining them.

"He played one or two games for us at the end of the year and played really well and that was it."
