NZ Champion returns from Aussie competition with MVP Award

Jo Harford —

Cameron McGrouther is an unassuming, humble young man who has an amazing talent. More at home behind a console than in front of the camera, Cameron is a champion Rocket League Player who recently returned from playing competitively in Australia,

He was selected by the Organisation, Chiefs eSports Club, one of the most recognised organisations in Oceania, to play for the first two weeks of Gfinity in place of their world class lineup that was playing in London at the Rocket League World Championship during this time (they placed 6th at the World Champs).

Cameron was the only New Zealand Rocket League Player at this event, and if you watch the videos of the stream and listen to the casters, you will see that despite being a substitute in this case,  he is considered one of the top players in Oceania.

Cameron's online name (Alias) is "CJM" and you can watch excerpts from the game and access more information by following the links below.
