Billy Birmingham and Paul Kent fire up over Alex McKinnon's comments about him being "disgusted" by Cameron Smith and his actions.
The Knights forward was speaking on Channel Nine documentary 60 minutes, which will be aired tonight, when he revealed how Cameron Smith reacted to McKinnon's injury.
The Storm and Kangaroos captain said "if he doesn't duck his head, that doesn't happen" which was overheard via the referee's microphone and it has transpired Smith didn't call McKinnon since the incident either.
Paul Kent and Billy Birmingham were guests on Sunday Triple M NRL and they got fired up on the matter and McKinnon's comments, which are set to be given in more detail in his book.
Birmingham defended Cameron Smith stating that he has seen lots of players "lying on the ground, faking an injury and trying to milk a penalty."

However, Kenty disagreed strongly stating "watching from home you could tell this was different. The panic on Alex McKinnon's face when his head lifted from the ground and the rest of his body stayed on the ground."
Paul Kent told Sunday Triple M NRL that "Alex and his father didn't want to go public with it" but added "they raised it up and I could visibly see their anger."
Wendell Sailor added that Smith did make an "error in judgement" with Kenty adding he did "misread the situation" and then said he should "acknowledge the problem" and ended by stating "in the 18 months, I think he could have made a phone call.'
