I say good on him he was treated like shit by the ARL when they lost that Tri Nations final and Ricky Stuart was one of the loudest pricks shooting his mouth off

Isn't Karma a wonderful thing!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Australia's National Rugby League has approved a plan for its matches to be officiated by two referees next season.
FFS....its bad enough having one prick with a whistle ....

Not to happy with this ...its bad enough having the ref hooked to the video ref ....telling him what he missed (most of the game) without having double the trouble...

Nice bit of vid for you ....love the tackle

I wish!! That photo is probably 7-8 years old,a bit greyer these days im afraid.
A wanna be stand-off maybe,didnt play too much league,was more of a footballer when younger,played a couple of seasons in the LARL with Kingston Warriors,then came back for a season and a half at the start up of the London Griffins RLFC,playing a combination of full-contact and tag,but by then i was in my late 30s and ended up like a cripple after most games.Played mostly full-back which i enjoyed and spent some time in the centres.Wished i had played more when i was younger and fitter but still glad i got the chance to play RL for a while,i enjoyed playing it far more than union which i played in my younger years.

Played Union for a while....mostly because of my elder brothers and the chance to drink beer. Aged 16 playing open age for Newton-le-Willows....then the chumps at the club insisted I play in the colts ....hated it ...sent off playing against Lymm...6 month ban (stiff armed their stand off...(boring bastard kept kicking the ball) abused the ref. and had a punch up with someone's Dad on the sidelines)...so I never played the game again
