The Canberra Times’ John-Paul Maloney is working hard to get in Matt Giteau’s good books with a lengthy soft interview in which the wizard gets to state his somewhat confused views on pretty much everything.
Apparently Matt and Bianca are getting away from us all with a holiday in the bankrupt construction site known as Dubai. I hope they have safe travels and a lovely time.
”One week they’re calling for your head, the next week ‘he’s the greatest player we’ve got, blah, blah, blah’. The media is a fickle thing. You play well one week and you’re on track for the World Cup. The next week you have a bad game and they say this team is a disaster,” he said.
”They’re paid to make comments like that, but as a playing group, I wouldn’t say we don’t respect them, but we certainly don’t pay any attention to them.”
For mine he still comes across as a bit grumpy. But hopefully a nice holiday will return him to us fully gruntled and doing his talking with the ball in hand.
