Tigers hooker Harry Grant has shown why the Maroons powerbrokers have him tipped to takes Cameron Smith’s Origin jersey moving forward, after an explosive performance off the bench last night.
The dummy-half finished with a try, 67 running metres from seven runs, four tackle busts and two line break assists.
With a debut try and a series win to his name at 22-years-old, Harry Grant has achieved in 64 minutes what took Paul Gallen 24 Origin matches.
With commentators and ex-rugby league greats alike praising the young fella, Queensland fans are now asking if Rockhampton has got anything else to offer towards this imminent Maroon dynasty.
With another proud Rockvegas lad in the shape of Cameron Munster taking home the Wally Lewis medal last night, the people of Queensland are now demanding that this humble little central coast town hand over anymore generationally talented white boys that might be hiding out in their grassroots.
Local Warwick-based butcher, Blob (55) says as a Queenslander he feels it is very important that the town of Rockhampton be honest about whether or not they have any more talent that they can share with the state.
“We, the people, demand more white boys from Rocky”
“We know they’ve got more of them, they just need to give them to us”
Another vocal Maroons fan, Barbara (44, schoolteacher, Dalby) agrees with Blob.
“We like what we see, and it’s obviously working. I would be furious to learn that any white boys in Rocky were playing soccer or AFL”
“We want as many Harrys and Camerons as you got”
The office of the Rockhampton mayor was approached for comment but apparently they haven’t had a mayor for like 10 days now.
