FULL COVERAGE: State of Origin on Triple M

Billy Slater

Q: Why aren't you in your underwear?

A: Those days are gone.

Q: Who's the 'nudest' in camp?

A: Probably Cameron Smith. He's got a fair rig on him too.

Q: Do you guys sledge much?

A: You don't get much time to breathe let alone happens every now and again though.


Ben Hannant

Q: Why aren't you in your undies?

A: It's changed now, we're professional now.

Q: Your name came up when talking about bad underwear...

A: I'm a Bonds man. I'm not about Calvin Klein. I'm not out there to try and impress, it's all about comfort.

Q: Do you put in a bit of effort for your wife?

A: I do have a couple of really good pairs but they only come out on special occasions.


Cameron Smith

Q: What's been going on in camp, are women sneaking in?

A: No, apart from women journalists

Q: Who likes to wip out jenga or a board game?

A: Cooper Cronk. He's a bit different. Connect 4 is his thing and every time he comes out on top.

Q: What's your winning gesture of choice?

A: Handstand. There has to be a lead of 30 in order to do a handstand. I'll put it at 30 then I won't have to do one.


Johnathan Thurston

Q: How are you going?

A: Laughs.

Q: Do you get bored of the same questions?

A: Laughs again.

Q: So how are you going to go in Origin 2. Don't answer that, don't care.

A: Laughs a lot.

Q: NSW have changed their team - care much?

A: Laughs.

Q: Are you confident to drink the night before?

A: Laughs. No certainly not. Laughs

Q: On Gorden Tallis touching players inappropriately...

A: He should keep his hands to himself.

Q: Who are they out-there players?

A: Cooper Cronk. He loves his poetry. You can ask him.

Q: What's the go with Sam Thaiday in shorts, socks and dress shoes?

A: That's Sammy for you. He can pull it off.
