    I'm guessing you'll be championing Steve Menzies for next year then? 349 games in 1st grade, close to 50 rep games, 130 games in Super League, and never once accused of being a salary cap cheat or signing multiple contracts.

    I hope Smith stays in Melbourne and acts as an ambassador for league growth there. Congrats to both, great to see league get recognised.

    I thought the same.

    Perhaps where the honour was awarded today?

    Rather ironic that two of Queensland’s greatest RL players receive a Queen’s Birthday Award and the Queen’s Birthday isn’t celebrated in QLD today.

    Soldiers don't like the Sex Pistols?

    I imagine they go around being offended by everything that insults the queen.

    Hey it is all good, Ser Shaun Johnson in amongst the realm, when he and Ser Nikora swam the Tasman and Braden the Brave of the Pacific Salmon, came south from the Northern its in QLD mofos.

    God save the Pacific, except VFL players.

    The royals can go and f**k themselves.
    Anyway some very well deserved and overdue awards for some great queenslanders and Australians.
    Long live Australia
