    I have a strange one. When I went and saw a Centurions game last year against the Sharks at Morry Breen, Wes and Junior Sau were sitting directly in front of me! Got speaking to them, and the day after, on the Sunday against Manly, Wes picked up an injury and Sau got a Neck injury.

    Well nothing funny happened to any players i've met but there have been funny moments, like at the 2011 member's launch my Mum was waving to Ryan Stig then went up to him & said "Hello Steve" thinking it was Steve Simpson lol. And Wes just rides bikes everywhere around my house like every week, i have no idea why it is funny, but it just is for some reason haha.

    Hmmm Met Jamal Idris and got him to sign my NSW Jersey even though he never played before then that year he gets named. Does that count? :D

    Back when Tahu was playing for the Eels I got him to sign the back of the Knights training singlet that I was wearing...... Now he's back with us.

    Or is that too much of a stretch, haha?

    I was getting autographs from the Melbourne players once - on a poster and my NSW jersey, as I was wearing it at the time - and Billy Slater signed the poster, then looked at the jersey and said "You sure you want me to sign that one, buddy?" But he did anyway. :)

    I asked Cooper Vuna for a Knights girl's package of stuff they were handing out at the trial in Port in 2010.
    He said "They are for girls, mate." And I replied with "It's for my sister". :lol:
