Re­spect for Blues stars takes a dive

The Sunday Telegraph (Sydney) - - SPORT -

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.
