With the NRL State Of Origin Match just around the corner, it appears that not everyone in the Sunshine State is happy with the modern game – even after an 80% win rate over the last decade.

While resting her pale feet on a gas heater in Parliament house today, One Nation leader Pauline Hanson has been recorded unsuccessfully attempting to pronounce the last name of Queensland number five, Dane Gagai.

After several cracks at it, she resorted to identifying him by his skin colour, before talking about the good old days when footballers had easier names to pronounce – like Adam Mogg and Kerrod Walters.

“It all started with that big copper from West End. What was his name? Muninger? Meninga?”

“Queenslanders used to have normal Aussie names untill he came along – and for what?”

“Now we’ve got names like Gayguy, Papallus, and Munster”

“Whatever happened to the good old days. Back when they had Aussie names like Schifcofske”

When asked if she thought that maybe the influx of Aboriginal and Polynesian players in the Queensland talent pool might be responsible for the record-breaking eight-in-a-row series streak, Hanson said she’s not interested in the stats and research from “so-called-experts”.

“I just want Australia to go back to the way it was in my faint memories and misplaced nostalgia”

“What’s next? Muslim footballers?”

“Like they care about footy”
