Default Re: mundines mouth enters storm in teacup

I like Tahu but he's come back to League from Union with a hell of a lot of pent-up aggro in him. Great player, I met him years ago when he was still up-and-coming at the Knights and he was a really nice bloke, seemed to have his head screwed on right.

As for his claim that past greats were afraid to announce their Aboriginal heritage, what of Ricky Walford and the 'brother's corner' in the dressing sheds at Kogarah, Cliffy Lyon, Mal Meninga, Artie Beetson, etc? They're legends going back several generations and they were all pretty open about their heritage.

Plenty of Aboriginal players have been selected for rep honours over the years.

Considering the majority of first grade NRL players are now of either Aboriginal or Polynesian background, how can anyone claim that whitey is still keeping them down?
