Not Wests Tigers related but gee I wish we had someone like John Bateman in our team! These are the blokes you need to win premierships! I just have massive admiration and respect for this bloke ever since I first saw him play the game in the SL!
More than just an athlete he’s a TRUE FOOTBALLER who lives and dies by rugby league! He embodies this game to a tee! You can see the passion, the PURE RAW EMOTION from John Bateman in the post game interview last night on Fox! On the verge of tears, it’s what the game is all about! The best backrower and the #1 player in the planet
Got goosebumps 🥶🥶 watching the interview! Wish we had more players with the desire, heart, passion and will of Batty! Does not get anymore REAL than that for these footballers! Bloodied from the head, battered and bruised after 80 mins of WAR in the field of battle! Gonna miss watching ya Johnny lad! The type of player every team needs to win the comp and one we desperately need! Your WILL TO WIN is so inspiring!
One of the best English forwards I have ever seen play the game! Tough as nails, inspirational player to the bone and a great human being! Hope to see you back in the NRL one day CHAMPION!! #fanfavourite #upthemilk
