“Jesus, we just can’t catch a break,” said NRL chairperson, Peter Beatie.
At the age of 44, Anthony Mundine is set to strap on the boots once more and take the field for the Matraville Tigers in the NRL. Anthony will be playing in their A-grade side in South Sydney, but his return couldn’t come at a worse time for the NRL.
Jack de Belin’s rape case, Greg Inglis’ drink-driving incident, the ongoing high-profile court case and the loss of broadcast revenue are just some of the major problems plaguing the game, but adding Anthony Mundine into the mix is a strain some don’t think it can take.
“Jesus, we just can’t catch a break,” said NRL chairperson, Peter Beatie. “We need Mundine sprouting anti-vaccine crap like we need a hole in the head. The games already got two black eyes, having him back is now the fat lip.”
While Beatie has a long hard think about resigning and doing something less stressful like hostage negotiating, not everyone is upset at the idea of having the ‘Mouth’ back. Matraville Tigers Club Secretary, Rachel Strong, sees a lot of positives in his appointment.
“We do have a few gaps in our back line which he will help with. We especially don’t have a player that throws the ball around every time to avoid getting tackled, and that’s where Anthony really shines.”
Mundine is expected to get his uniform first thing tomorrow and to have said at least three stupid things to the media by lunchtime.
