Bum sniffing? lucky for you he is unlikely to see John Hopoate playing unless he watches an old game

They really ARE TOO privileged. Shut them down I reckon... they have basically dissed us all.. so right back at them. And seriously, if they are as stupid as they seem to be,, doh.. like Wayne Bennett..? Not stupid.. but sly...

Found it unfair that Wayne Bennett and Alfie Langer were fined $20 000 and $5000 respectively for breaching covid restrictions, but Tevita Pangai Jr was fined $30 000 and then sacked from his $600k per annum position. Whilst not excusing Pangai, he was young and stupid, so was Dragons player Paul Vaughan who was only fined $10k. But Bennett and Langer have all been in the business for long enough and should know better. They set the example for the youngster players. Why weren't they sacked? Either sack them all, or none of them.

why not? It's not like they ever played for any good teams. Although Bennett did coach the greatest team ever (Dragons) for a 2 year period
Alfie is so little even if he got Corona he would need to run around and around people before they could catch anything from him :wins

says a lot about him as a player that he was often half the size of the others, but he could still mix it with them ... and come out on top

come out of the closet have yous.?

Bennett and Langer should have been fined much more. At least as much, but better MORE... than the players... Bennett especially, as a big FACE in the game.

Langer has no excuse, but at least he isn't actually a Coach.

Yeah have to say so sick of this constant NEWS apparently, about sports. I mean NEWS is NEWS. and sport is sport, so sport should have it's own slot, because I am sick of more sport than NEWS on TV News.. it is appalling.. who cares for fucks sake. I'd rather know what was happening in the world.. you know..? NEWS.?

I have no idea WTF you lot are going on about. Not because I watch “areal ping pong” either. I don’t follow a sport but on the rare occasion I turn on the telly and a soccer game is being shown I will watch that, unless quality of play is too low.
