He was known in his footy days as “Big Bad Bustling” but Barry Hall is now officially “Noodles” according to fight foe Paul Gallen.
Ahead of their highly-anticipated boxing match in Melbourne next month, NRL legend Paul Gallen has amusingly sledged former AFL star Barry Hall, assigning him a cheeky nickname.

At the launch of his autobiography Heart and Soul, Gallen signed a fresh copy for his upcoming opponent, boldly writing the sledge in the front cover.

Hall’s reluctance to participate in three-minute rounds spurred the former Sharks captain to coin the nickname “Noodles”, a reference to two-minute noodles.

“I’ve signed this book to Barry ‘Noodles’ Hall,” Gallen said. “Train hard, mate. Best wishes, Paul Gallen.”

“Barry refuses to fight three-minute rounds. We’re fighting two-minute rounds, so I’ve nicknamed him ‘two-minute noodles,’” Gallen added.
