    I want to know why the greatest player to have ever lived, Billy Slater did not receive an awar,d. Disgraceful in my opinion.

    Wonder if people remember some of Thurston’s controversy over the years. He isn’t perfect like they want to believe.

    I cannot wait for Queen's Birthday awards in the future going to James Tedesco, Latrell Mitchell, Luke Keary, Cooper Cronk and Joseph Manu.

    You're 1 signature away from a padded room and a tricky coat.

    The state of Tedesco's choppers would make a Pommy dentist gasp. Latrell must have French blood the way he packs it in. Keary is Captain Concussion and will be flatout writing "Luke Keary" with his crayons in 20 years, adding "AM" will get him all out of sorts. Cronk showed his worth in 2018 GF; did nothin wasn't missed. I rate Joey Manu, needs more early ball.

    So you agree with a Queen's Birthday Honour award to James Tedesco and Joseph Manu.
