Top drawer interview that - quite unlike any other I've read with a current league player.
I have a lot of time for the Telegraph - they are far less weaselly about their political leanings than the Express or Mail, and they have some good writers. More Rugby League in their pages is a good thing, and this interview will challenge a few preconceptions.
"Journalists are meant to be neutral, for God's sake." - Stephen 'Wiggy' Jones
"Perhaps it would be better that future criticism of sports be made on the narrow basis of what is being discussed, without reference to other sports, unless those sports offer a solution to the problem in hand." - Brian 'Pigface' Moore
"What happens in rugby union? A player takes the ball, moves forward a little and gets tackled. A whole load of players then roll about on the ground. Pheep! The referee gives a penalty." - Simon Barnes
