    They seem to be a Queensland thing. They wanted to put a statue of a cane toad up at the place they were released but the Govt wouldn't pay for it.

    LOL. There's a typo on the nameplate.
    Everyone knows there's no T in Minno.

    If the Warriors stay in Australia for the whole season - they might get one.

    It'd be good to see in time some more players get statues, besides the current ones who would you choose?

    Cowboys - Matt Scott
    Brisbane - Maybe Langer, maybe Cameron Smith or JT if they go keep going down the QLD Legends path.
    Gold Coast - Probably nobody yet, maybe Preston Campbell.
    Newcastle - Chief & Joey
    SFS - Fittler, Beetson
    Bankwest - Sterling
    Penrith - Alexander, would be weird having a statue of Todd Byrne for the Sattler tackle.
    Tigers (which ground?) - The flick pass.
    Canberra (new ground) - Daley and/or Stuart
    Mt Smrt - Stacey Jones.
    Brisbane, Newcastle, Wollongong, Kogarah & SFS - Darius.

    The Reg Gasnier Statue is currently at Kogarah Oval, while the SFS is being fixed up. It will stay at Kogarah until the stadium gets fixed (or nearing completion).

    The Daley Statue provides ample coverage from the elements
    It's said 500-700 people can keep themselves dry under his nose

    Outside of JT if i was going to pick one person to have a statue that turned a club around and had an everlasting effect and set up the blueprint for success to follow for years to come it would be an easy pick.
