I'm sure Sam enjoyed the kickboxing that he Manu, Charlie and Ligi were at last night. Completely irrelevant but perception is a funny thing.
If he wants time off for this weekend game (the week before a bye) that's fine. I assume he asked Kearney
and it got approved so no issue. If Bunty has a ripper of a game then Sam may find himself back in reserve grade for weeks trying to get his way back in the first grade squad. That's the risk he is taking by opting to got a wedding instead of playing.
End of the day we don't have him tonight. That means one thing... a few less brainless penalties given away!
