He made that movie The Final Winter. Since then, he’s made people think he’s a football expert.

You should see the artsy promos he does for Fox Sports
Feel free to call me RickyRicky StickStick if you like. I will also accept Super Fui, King Brad, Kid Dynamite, Chocolate-Thunda... or Brad.

NRL player, turn actor, turn commentator.

Still trying to find something he excels at.

But to be fair, I didn’t mind his work in one of the Underbelly’s.

Storm will be in that top 6.
I can’t see them winning the comp though... I’m leaning towards a repeat of 1990.

Haven't seen a replay but was that a cheapshot from Kamikamica just before he came off for the HIA? Looked like he kicked or tried to kick the head of a tackled player, and a few South's players had words with him.
