They won’t be beating Boonies record then

This bloke Singe, the Sea Eagles “Head Conditioner”, might get nailed for being un-Australian.

Many will wonder whether players are permitted to drink alcohol en-route to the UK, but Singe reveals that everyone is thoroughly professional.

“Alcohol prevents your body from taking its natural process of repair and relaxation.

“Our terms are very clear – if you’re going to drink alcohol, we control it.

“Our level is zero. We’re going over there to do a job.”

With a wowser like that watching them they will never beat Boonies record of 52 cans:

Simpson thought somebody had won a card game until the plane’s captain announced Boon had consumed 52 beers. “Simpson went purple with anger and I mentioned to (selector Laurie) Sawle that maybe Boonie should be sent home and I would bat in his spot,” Jones recalls.

It’s a record Boon has never claimed, but Lawson confirms the score and says with great regret that he wishes he had rescued the sick bags from the plane. “They would have been worth a fortune,” he laments. “You can imagine Tony Greig selling replicas of them summer after summer after summer.”

As much at home writing editorials as being the subject of them, Cam has won awards, including the Canon Media Award for his work on the Len Brown/Bevan Chuang story. When he’s not creating the news, he tends to be in it, with protagonists using the courts, media and social media to deliver financial as well as death threats.

They say that news is something that someone, somewhere, wants kept quiet. Cam Slater doesn’t do quiet and, as a result, he is a polarising, controversial but highly effective journalist who takes no prisoners.

He is fearless in his pursuit of a story.

Love him or loathe him, you can’t ignore him.
