‘Should’ve Spoken About It Then’: Aaron Woods, Wade Graham React To Kalyn Ponga’s Toilet Cubicle Response
NRL stars Aaron Woods and Wade Graham both believe Kalyn Ponga should’ve addressed his infamous toilet cubicle incident from last season much sooner after the Knights star only spoke publicly on the matter for the first time this week.
Ponga, who was out for the season at the time due to medical advice following repeated head knocks, last August made headlines for the wrong reasons when he was seen walking out of a pub toilet cubicle with teammate Kurt Mann.
While the 24-year-old claims Mann was there to assist him after falling sick, he admitted to reporters on Monday that he “shouldn’t have been out in the first place.”
“A lot of self-reflecting over the off-season,” Ponga told reporters.
“It was a period that I will look back on and hopefully down the track, and even now, it is probably one of the most difficult moments of my life.
“I have learnt a lot from that time. I have put things in place that will help me be a better person and hopefully a better leader. I shouldn’t have been out in the first place.”
Woods said it was disappointing to see the matter still playing out in the public.
