How does that old saying go??? It takes a big man to admit he is wrong!!! Well never let it be said that I am not a big man!!!
Last week I took a shot at the Sharks players for their post-try celebrations, something which I am definitely not a fan of. I am pretty sure I called it unsportsmanlike and said that it was poor form. Well, I will take that back. Why??? Because I did not know of the tragic accident which be felled Mose Masoe over in England, probably because I live in Pricktoria and Rugby League news doesn’t rate a mention.
For those that are not aware, in early 2020 Mose was injured and was told that his walking days were over. To this man-mountain’s credit, he battled through, received some radical spinal surgery and 4 months later he took his first step.
Unfortunately though, things are tough for Mose and his family as his medical bills are huge. This is why the NRL and the Men of League are holding fundraising initiatives, one of which is a $5000 donation for every post-try celebration. Now THAT is a cause I can get behind and wholly encourage all teams to get behind.
So to the Sharks, I do apologise and totally retract what I wrote last week. Well done for supporting such a worthy cause!!!
Well that’s what I think…
