Respect for Blues stars takes a dive
FOUR NSW Blues players snubbed the Brad Fittler Medal presentation at The Star casino last week — Aaron Woods, James Tedesco, Jack Bird and Nathan Peats.
It is the NSW State of Originin team’s most prestigious awardd and their no-shows have been n described as “disrespectful’’ by y Blues officials.
Woods and Tedesco had a weekend away in Melbourne and didn’t get back in time.
At least Peats was on the Gold Coast and is supporting his wife and a new baby.
As for Bird (pictured), it’s probably not surprising. This is the same person who brushed the 300-game dinners for Paul Gallen, Luke Lewis and Chris Heighington during the season.
Other Cronulla Sharks stars James Maloney, Wade Graham, Andrew Fifita and Paul Gallen even left their Mad Monday drinks to be there as a mark of respect to the Blues jersey.
