Re: Canberra Raiders receive request for immediate release of Curtis Scott to Wests Tigers

Anyone been watching that Wild Wests Tiger Town? Is it just me or does Pascoe come across as a bit of a ****? He seems to strut around acting like he's king **** with his stupid hair cut and trendy clothes, happy to be earning the big $$$ without actually having any idea what he's doing.
