Queensland State of Origin star Cameron Munster has been spotted celebrating in Byron Bay after a grueling series victory.

The Maroons toppled the New South Wales Blues 20 to 14 at Suncorp Stadium in Brisbane on November 18, and victorious players headed south to the idyllic north coast town to let their hair down.

The 26-year-old was elated after the Maroons victory and told the Suncorp crowd after the match players were headed to Byron to revel in their victory.

Munster was pictured alongside fellow NRL star Sandor Earl, who appeared to borrow Munster’s State of Origin medal for the evening, and retired second rower Justin Horo on Saturday chatting with locals and enjoying a drink outside the town’s iconic Beach Hotel.

The Origin hero dressed casually in a grey t-shirt from Byron Bay based brand Thrills, with a black backwards hat, sunglasses and tan shorts to take in a gorgeous sunset on the lawn outside the popular watering hole.

He shared beers with his mates and chatted with female friends in the golden light before moving their party elsewhere as the sun dipped below the mountains.

The Maroons play maker enjoyed an incredible season in 2020, claiming the Wally Lewis Medal as State of Origin player of the series, as well as the Premiership with the Melbourne Storm.

‘Outstanding boys, I can’t fault you guys,’ Munster said after claiming the prestigious medal.

‘Thank you to Queensland and the fans, this one is for you guys.’

Munster was captured on the broadcast jumping onto Maroons trainer Allan Langer’s back and riding him like a horse in the dressing rooms after the win.

In retirement he has turned his focus to analysing sports on his podcast, The Horo Scope.
