God, this is an awful speech. You forget just how bad he is on the teleprompter.
Yeah, it's nothing on Hulk Hogan's speech, that's for sure.

He's gonna need to rip his shirt off if he's going to compete.

Re: 2024 State of Origin III- Maroons v Blues

That's my entire point though, right? Assuming we're all inline with Gordon Tallis' comments and behavior even though he's a complete flog is like me saying all New South Wales fans are aligned with guys like EDIT

They're individuals, their views don't necessarily reflect the entire state.

I’m ok with either Cleary or Luai missing out. You cannot drop Moses. He was enormous in game 2 and did his job really well last night. He was better than Luai overall this series. Luai, no doubt a gun player, but has a knack for overlooking space and damaging outside backs that are positioned to t...

I've seen players leave the field in club games absolutely on a different planet who come back ten minutes later, and I've also seen vice versa.
