    Mal would do anything and pick anyone to win. He'd reverse a vasectomy to win a footy game...oh wait he's already done that.

    I will give every cent I ever earn from Rugby league to charity if they will give me a run! LOL Saying you will do something and actually doing it are two different things, especially when It was obvious he was never going to get picked.

    Which other bone head came out and tried to bribe their way into the side by announcing they'd donate the match fee (less tax and agents fees) to charity.

    He was probably going to donate it to the Andrew Fafita Foundation and pay it out as a wage to his wife.

    Speaking of Jimmy Rustling! If he was so keen to bribe his way into the side maybe...just maybe... he wouldn’t be playing for Tonga.

    Indeed. If he wasn't playing for Tonga there wouldn't be a conflict and no need for offering up his match fee, as he's in good enough form to warrant selection on merit. He wants it all, which is his right. Freddy wants full commitment, which is his right... and he's the boss.

    Fair enough. Let’s hope his ‘good / motivated blokes only’ mantra doesn’t bite him on the arse...these are footy players after all and, for example, Jimmy is overdue for a Thailand trip and Latrell a rest.

    Ha... let's hope they all need a stint in a Thai rehab facility after a 3-0 series win!

    Milford’s playing for Samoa this week, so can everyone shut up about how “Fifita can’t play for nsw anymore”
    So dumb

    I don’t care. I’m a qlder.

    My point was people genuinely believe he cannot play for nsw now

    It was clear he could. Deep down he does not really want to. He knows QLD made a mess of him in game 2 and 3 last year.

    Origin is too fast for a lumbering plodder with slow ptb's.

    I'll never forget his pea hearted performances in Games 2 & 3 last year... and neither has NSW.

    Same goes for duds like Graham, Jackson and co. Plodner is very lucky.
