Too right, they make our tall poppy syndrome look tame. 🤣
It’s different, when I first moved to Aus I had trouble “selling myself”.
It the expectation here that you tell people of your ideas and ability and stand up and announce yourself for opportunities, if you don’t you won’t get noticed.
Do any of that in NZ and you’ll get laughed down for being cocky and arrogant- it’s just cultural differences.

Merkins are just the same, but the Aussies still sort egos out.

Could just be a media beat up. Another statement

allegedly failed to comply with a "move on direction".

fuck me, arrested for that? Fuck aussie is a shit place to be at the moment
That reads a lot better than having the drug offences.

The video all looked pretty tame. Obviously we don't see if anything happened before hand.

I note that imported players such as Lodge, Evan’s and Walsh got sent off and arrested - the family / nice guy type culture is changing as they’re based in Aussie and have more Aussies in the team.
I believe there is work to be done here by the Warriors.
If it’s drugs , then this is bad.

Dam it make it sound better by saying Ex Bronco Reese Walsh.
That would make it their 4th since mad Monday 😠
It would of been if we stuck to the original plan with him starting in 2022.

It is still early and not much details. The drugs part is a worry. Young guy who has just come into a lot of money. We all were different when we were younger and went out and had a good time. Being a sportsmen and highly paid opens up more opportunities and also more scrutiny if you do anything.

Could be enough to scare him and he goes the rest of his career without an issue.
