Cameron McInnes is the fearless leader of the St George Illawarra Dragons and his positional switch in 2020 speaks volumes of the selfless team-first approach he's instilled ever since he's been in the NRL.
McInnes made his first-grade debut with the South Sydney Rabbitohs in Round 5 of the 2014 season and made 39 appearances for the club before signing with the Red V in 2017.
He plyed his trade under premiership-winning coach Michael Maguire and played behind representative hooker Isaac Luke, before his transition to the Dragons saw him make the no.9 jersey his own.
He was named captain of the side at the start of the 2020 campaign, however, has endured a tough year that saw him overcome an early cheekbone injury, and an inevitable positional switch to lock due to the Dragons' disappointing results.
But since his transition into the no.13 jumper, McInnes has left no stone unturned in his efforts to revive the Dragons season with some incredible performances that has seen him average a whopping 56 tackles per game.
The 2014 Australian U20 representative has been revered as one of the most hard-working players in any grade he has played, including the seven appearances for the North Sydney Bears in the Canterbury Cup NSW in 2014 and 2015 respectively.
His continous strong form, at both hooker and lock, has forced his name into Origin calculations with a potential debut for the Brydens Lawyers NSW Blues on the horizon for the 2020 series.
