The Daily Telegraph (Sydney) - - News - CHRISTO­PHER HAR­RIS

PRIME Min­is­ter Scott Mor­ri­son’s tus­sle with Sharks cap­tain Paul Gallen yes­ter­day morn­ing was tough — but not as tough as hav­ing to wres­tle a few hours later with the ques­tion of why Mal­colm Turnbull was re­placed.

At Bur­ra­neer Bay Pub­lic School, Mr Mor­ri­son took on the 105kg NRL leg­end and heavy­weight boxer as part of vet­er­ans’ char­ity Sol­dier On’s bid to set a world record for the most arm wres­tles over 24 hours.

And the PM won. “Great morn­ing with ScoMo, he ac­tu­ally beat me at the arm wres­tle but only cause I got a sore shoul­der,” Gallen wrote later on Face­book.

At an­other char­ity event that day — a lunch for Life­line — Mr Mor­ri­son told MC Mike Munro his col­leagues felt Mr Turnbull was out of touch with core sup­port­ers.
