The typical Origin mind games have continued, with Queensland coach Kevin Walters boldly telling the media that the entire Queensland Maroons side has been struck down with ‘fatal cases of ligma.’
The disease, unheard of prior to Kevvy’s proclamation, has been revealed to a false illness, and merely an excuse to set up the killer punchline of ‘ligma balls,’ with the optional follow-up of ‘cunt.’
Regardless, the news has sent tremors through the Blues camp, with coach Brad Fittler reeling from the relevation that the entire Queensland side will be different to that which has expected. Relatively unknown names like Xavier Coates and Cory Paix will be debuting, with old veterans like Shane Webcke and Allan Langer reportedly considering a return to the field.
Some have informed Freddy that this is just part of the typical Queensland psychological manipulation, and that in reality, they’re just trying to distract him from the task at hand. But the bare-footed Blues legend isn’t so easily convinced, and decided to pay a surprise visit to the Queensland camp to check on the players.
Upon arriving and seeing a mess of empty XXXX Bitter cans, Freddy thought he’d found the right place, a fact confirmed by his next sight - Kevvy Walters charging straight at him.
‘Get away, Brad, get away! They’re so contagious! They’ve all been struck down with ligma!’
'Ligma?' asked Fittler, walking into a trap he hadn't even known was set.
Kevvy took in a sharp breath, knowing that he had laid the bait perfectly. All that remained was the sublime execution.
‘Ligma balls mate, haha! Got him!’
As Maroons players came from their hiding spots, pointing fingers at Fittler and calling him a ‘fucking gullible idiot’ to his face, all the aligned chakras and hot yoga couldn’t save Freddy from his embarrassment.
But he vowed to bring the pain on Wednesday night. Bring it on, NSW.
No more to come on this brilliant story.
