WE had a good laugh at champion English international James Graham labelling the self-appointed architects of a supposed rumour linking Mitchell Moses with a possible switch to the Sydney Roosters as “little b***ches”.

As usual, Graham was on the money and only too happy to call a spade a shovel and clip those who require a clip around the ear with it.

For those who missed it there was a spot fire on Thursday on Triple M’s Footy Talk podcast when reporter Michael Chammas suggested he and an unnamed NRL club official had come up with an in-joke amongst themselves of creating a rumour about the Roosters being interested in signing Mitchell Moses.

Supposedly, this happened a couple of weeks ago.

Firstly, in 20 years of working in the media I’ve never seen this type of thing happen previously.

Sure there’ll be banter and robust conversations with club chairman, CEO’s, coaches, players and agents on a daily basis but to be taking credit for being the architect of something that’s completely made up is new territory.

Or as James Graham put it so eloquently – “you little b&*ches”.

Some mistakenly assumed Graham’s take was directed at Fox League’s NRL 360 hosts. But Graham has contacted the hosts to assure them this was not the case.

Next up, as we reported last Wednesday, the only reason Mitchell Moses was being linked to the Sydney Roosters was because his agent (and cousin) Isaac Moses had raised the prospect with Roosters power brokers.

That’s how the story really boiled to the surface on NRL 360 last week.

It wasn’t being driven by the Roosters – they went to great lengths to assure Luke Keary and Sam Walker it won’t be happening – it was being driven by the agent.

It certainly wasn’t being driven by some made up dribble between an unnamed club official and a journo, as claimed.

As for the unnamed official at the unnamed club who’s also been part of this sideshow, we’re tipping if you freeze it there there’s a good chance they’ll tear both hamstrings to get in front of the television cameras.

THERE was a lot to like about another cracking round of rugby league.

From Nathan Cleary’s 43m field goal to send the grand final rematch into golden point to Reagan Campbell Gillard’s performance to get the Eels into position for Mitch Moses to kick the winning field goal, it was absolutely brilliant.

The opening instalment of the Battle of Brisbane lived right up to the hype with the injury and suspension ravaged Dolphins continuing to punch well above their weight.

The South Sydney Rabbitohs and Manly delivered John Sattler with a fitting send off on Super Saturday with the football gods handing the Rabbitohs a golden point win.

The way South Sydney finished on 13 points, Cody Walker scored the 13th double of his career and Sattler had worn jumper no.13 was a fitting tribute to a rugby league icon.

The Rabbitohs also did a brilliant job in inviting Scott Sattler into the team huddle for a minute’s silence prior to kick-off and paying tribute to the Sattler family on the night.
