‘Oh please!’: Paul Gallen scoffs at Maroons-Blues ‘gentlemen’s agreement’
While both State of Origin camps have promised not to milk the head contact crackdown for penalties, Paul Gallen doesn’t believe a word of it.
NSW Blues captain James Tedesco has described the tactic as “cheap” and “sad”, while Queensland Maroons captain Daly Cherry-Evans has referred to a “gentlemen’s agreement” to do the sportsmanlike thing.
Sharks legend Paul Gallen was dismissive of the two camps’ claims, turning a question back on Mark Levy.
“18-all, two [or] three minutes to go, you get hit in the head, what are you doing?”
“Staying down,” Mark replied.
In State of Origin everything is on the line, Gal pointed out.
