A true mark of fame, Taiwan’s NMA TV are covering, in their own inimitable way, the Joel Monaghan saga.
UPDATE: The Canberra Times has a miserly snippet saying Monaghan is going to try to resign rather than be sacked and wants to be able to play again in Australia in the future.
Further Update: New Zealand’s Nelson Mail has better coverage. We’ll have more on the Canberra Times response to this story on Monday.
Here’s Foxsports take:
The plot thickens: The SMH reports that Terry Campese is leading a player-power charge to keep Monaghan at the club.
The Others: The Herald Sun informs us that the other players involved are being looked into while the London Harlequins are reportedly keen on his services.
Nothing on Paper: Monday morning on 666 reports that there’s no paper offer from Monaghan or his management in at the Raiders.
And so we wait: ABC Radio reports that there will be no decision until the board meets again tomorrow.
More popular than anal sex:
Thanks to Skidbladnir for digging up this data in the comments:
Joel Monaghan is apparently actually more popular than dog sex (for which he is now the posterchild, anyway).
However, he is more newsworthy than anal sex, dog sex, and the Canberra Raiders combined.
That’s quite an achievement.
