As the RLPA-NRL CBA dispute continues, Cronulla Sharks forward and RLPA board member Wade Graham has shared his frustration with the NRL and their refusal to negotiate with the players.
Graham and Manly forward Aaron Woods explain the players’ side of the story and how they believe the NRL deceived the players in the past before the COVID pandemic shed light on the game’s finances.
Graham and Woods backed RLPA boss Clint Newton after he was challenged by league legend Gorden Tallis and reporter James Hooper on Triple M’s Sunday Sin Bin.
Tallis says Newton needs to step down as RLPA boss, but the players have backed their leader as the media boycott continues into a second week.
“Newto is copping it left, right and centre at the moment … but he does a great job for the plauers,” Graham said.
“He’s doing a great job expressing the information.
“But when people are attacking Clint and the RLPA, they’re attacking the players.”
