SYDNEY: Nathan Cleary has sensationally claimed he’s innocent of flouting social distancing laws, arguing his chin is so massive he can’t stay 1.5m from anyone.
“Look mate I’m not trying to make excuses, it’s just the old face bum is a bit on the Jay Leno side of things.”
“It means it’s really hard to obey social distancing. Forget people coming to my house. I’ve got problems when my neighbours are at home.”
This excuse fell on deaf ears at NRL HQ though, with acting CEO Anthony Abdo responding “Daly Cherry-Evans can keep his giraffe neck away from people then you can keep that chimple to yourself.”
More to come. Sadly.
