Sheens has always had the policy of keeping new players away from the media in order keep them away from any added pressure. The fact is that fronting the media and how a player deals with that is another skill an NRL player has to acquire these days. Some players front the media earlier than others but considering it's such an important game and the interest it has generated Tim obviously feels it's not the time for Lui to front up. I'm with him 100%. Let the kid go into the game with as little distraction as possible.
Has anyone seen the tipping leaderboard in the Daily Telegraph. I hadn't looked at it in ages, then had a chuckle when I saw Rothfield is coming second last, just ahead of Amanda Keller. Shows how well he understands the game… :laughing:
