Wallabies and New South Wales Waratahs star Nick Phipps is today hot property for an array of different NRL Clubs, after the prominent union halfback publicly apologises for urinating on a bar in Sydney’s east last month.
Phipps has also apologised for his dismal stream, failing to even reach is own mouth with the dark yellow urine he was seen excreting at the back end of his own bucks party at Sydney’s Woollahra Hotel.
Phipps was kicked out of the venue shortly after the April 21 incident — just the night after the team’s record 29-nil loss to South African team The Lions.
This low level scandal has lead many sports analysts to question whether he is preparing to change codes to the much more public-urination friendly National Rugby League.
A switch to the NRL would see Phipps join the ranks of iconic rugby league public urinators such as Todd Carney, Willie Mason, Russell Packer and Greg Bird.
It is believed the Parramatta Eels, Gold Coast Titans and Manly Sea Eagles were quick to put in offers for the 29-year-old Kings School product, with Phipps stating he’d prefer to sign with a club that is near the beach so he doesn’t have to compromise his current Eastern Suburbs living arrangement in any way.
“I’m a goose. If I’m going to do the crime, I’ll pay the time and do a season with the Sharks or the Roosters” he said.
“Maybe not the Sharks actually. If I can’t even pull off a bubbler at the Woollahra, I doubt I’ll be able to do it at Northies with all those blokes watching”
“Roosters will do just fine”
“Come get me Uncle Nick”
