    He's receiving an AM. Pretty sure there's nothing in the criteria about being perfect.

    Thurston likely got it also for his work with indigenous communities, Cam likely for his contribution towards Chartered Accountants Australia....

    Just checked on the Storm site.
    He got it for charity work, being National Ambassador for Ovarian Cancer Australia, and working with the Prostrate Cancer Foundation.
    On the above can't knock him, even though he is a lousy referee.

    JT does a heap of work behind the scenes for indigenous communities. Didn't know about Smith's cancer foundation efforts. There would be another 100 players that just their ass for various causes that go unknown/noticed to the masses.

    Ryan Papenhuyzen deserves to receive a Dutch Queen's birthday honour for his service to rugby league in the Netherlands.
