THE WARM-UP

The Daily Telegraph (Sydney) - - League Central -

OK, easy one first-up ... why on earth would you sign with a club boast­ing the game’s low­est Third Party Agree­ments? “(Laughs) Ah, it doesn’t bother me. If play­ers from clubs like Mel­bourne and Bris­bane can earn a few ex­tra dol­lars, I’m not up­set.” Not even a lit­tle? “Mel­bourne have some very mar­ketable names. Why shouldn’t they earn ex­tra? I wouldn’t vote against it. Plus, here at St Ge­orge Illawarra, the boys reckon all our cash goes to Ben Hunt (be­low) any­way.” Of the dozen Dragons who travel to train­ing on Tonya the minibus, you’re said to be the worst driver. True? “Yeah, I re­ally strug­gle with di­rec­tions. Some­times the guys even think I’m tak­ing the mick with a wrong turn. They can’t be­lieve I still don’t know where to go.”

But you’re so su­per­sti­tious you spent six years tak­ing the same route to Bel­more for train­ing when you were at the Bull­dogs. How do you get lost? “Not sure, es­pe­cially since we’ve got a sat-nav.”
