Here's what's probably my favorite This Is Oz  image to date.

It shows the New South Wales (NSW) State of Origin  team for 2010. The State of Origin  competition is fought-out in Australia each year in mid-Winter between representative rugby league teams from NSW and Queensland.

It may be necessary to scroll over to see the whole image ------>

Rugby league immortal, Andrew Johns, can be seen in the front row, fourth from the left, in his capacity as Assistant Coach. He is widely recognized as one of the greatest rugby league players of all time. And he's gorgeously handsome and stacked like a brick outhouse to boot. For me personally, it's the fact that he's a flawed hero that makes him all the more attractive and engaging. He has struggled with bipolar disorder and drug abuse in the past and has a major, ongoing problem with foot-in-mouth syndrome.

At the risk of going OT, I can't resist plugging Andrew's autobiography, "The Two of Me," which also happens to have one of my favorite pictures of Andrew on the cover:




I also love this photo of Andrew with his brother, Matty. Again, it may be necessary to scroll over ----->

Not thinking before you speak. Kerry is omitting John's recent attack of this. Nice to know he is not homophobic, because he has shown himself to be a racist.
