i wonder if these athetic excuses of journalists actually know anything else in NRL world. F#@k I am sick of the rubbish they write....U wold think they might be interested in the Gold Coast, but NO... ........................................................................................... The biggest and most destructive ball-runner in the NRL has a worrying problem. He gets so nervous on the night before big matches that he goes out on the tiles. At least that's what Kangaroo forward Tony Williams told Manly officials in explaining why he was spotted at the Steyne Hotel at around midnight last Sunday night. Less than 24 hours later he took the field against the Cronulla Sharks and poleaxed Sharks hooker Isaac De Gois in the ugliest tackle I have seen in years. I was later told Williams had been out the night before with two players from the Sydney Roosters. It turns out Manly has had this problem with the big fella before. Sea Eagles football manager Steve Gigg told me Williams had been hauled in by Des Hasler last year over similar incidents before games. "T-Rex told us last year he gets nervous and often can't sleep on the night before he plays," Gigg said. "So to keep calm, he goes out and listens to a bit of live music to take his mind off the game." I'm told Williams was drinking with the two Roosters players at the Steyne and later at another venue. Gigg said Williams denied drinking any alcohol. "He went to the Steyne because his cousin was playing in the band and didn't have a drink," Gigg said. "He's told us he was home by 11.30pm." I'm also told Williams had a couple of big nights out on last year's Four Nations tour. Whatever the case, T-Rex needs to be more careful about his pre-match routine in future. No one is questioning his behaviour, but if Manly start losing games and the big guy slides into a form slump, we know what the fans will be saying - that Williams should be home in bed.
