The Stalker Series: Revisited



  • I think it was Willie the Waiter that had an on going series of encounters with more famous sporting types going back probably 10 years or so.
    Anyway having attended a function on Saturday night where a reasonably well known Queensland and Australian Rugby League representative was the guest speaker I thought I would reinstate it.
    Refer attached photo... I'm the bloke on the left ... 🙂 [attachment=2005:IMG_4106-320x240.JPG]



  • Full credit to the guy too.
    Spoke really well, told some good stories, was funny and was happy to stand and take photos with random losers ... and me ... and look happy about it.



  • You look like you're about to punch him - fully deserved for him not mentioning Olsen Filipaina in his book.



  • "Wally and the broncos" i think it was he mentioned Olsen

  • Wally Lewis looks remarkably identical to how he did when he was playing, ie he looked like ya mates Dad in his late 20s, 30 or so years later he's grown into his age just like Scots Rugby legends John Jeffrey and Finlay Calder and trundling English forwards Jeff Probyn and Paul Rendall.



  • Dammit! Wish I checked the fern last night.  I was seated with Cristian Cullen, Kit Fawcett and Hoani Matenga last night at my father in laws wedding.



  • My old man plays Tennis with two former ABs every week. I had no idea who one of them was at the time to be fair.



  • I played tennis with Dan Carter once.
     
    Nah I didn't that is a lie. I am just trying to fit in with the thread.



  • I saw Mike Brewer today searching through the bargain table at an outlet store at Dress Smart Onehunga.



  • and no photo to show?? For shame!



  • I worked in a butchery department when I was younger, and used to serve Jamie Joseph. He would make special orders for the largest Pork Belly I could find - I'd call our suppliers and get them to do a special delivery. Good times.



  • Most boring thread ever. Colour me unimpressed



  • You're prolly too young to get the "gag" of the WTW stalker series



  • Most boring thread ever. Colour me unimpressed

    I also have a picture of myself next to Willie Apiata, in case you were interested.

    I was fighting him for the best $20 polo shirt.



  • You would have smashed him too!!

    I'm impressed that I've got more hair ...

    Most ABs tend to speak favourably about their ex teammates or not speak of them at all. Not Norm Hewitt though, his description of him as a "Grade A Prick" in his book made me chortle. Josh Kronfeld mentioned that he was hurt Brewer told him to "shut the fuck up" during a team talk in his book too.
     
    No wonder you didn't talk to him Smudge.....

    I'm not the type of bloke to wander up to former footy players and say "hey, you're [nsert name from the 70s, 80s, or 90s]'' but even as I considered the remote possibility of doing so, his reputation as a fluffybunny among men did cross my mind and ensured that remote possibility disappeared pretty quickly.
