Foxx has the first three tries of the game. The third courtesy of a Munster strip and flick pass.

Australia 14-0 up after 22 minutes.

Pretty boring game but Australia won’t so that’s all that matters

Munters situational awareness just doesn't seem to be developing as he gets older....
Photos of him vaping in the change room post world cup win have emerged.

Whilst it's probably not the worst offence to be committed by a footy player celebrating, it's that complete lack of foresight and and ability to think about where he is and what he's doing thats on full display yet again. Very frustrating for a bloke the club has just fought to retain.

I honestly could care less if he wants a vape and few post match bevies, heck I wasn't even that upset about the 'white powder being used. What cheeses me off is these blokes know there's cameras, they know there are people who like to try and get mud to stick, yet they still don't seem to be able to exercise the required discretion that should tell them to make sure they do that sort of thing quietly and away from prying eyes. I swear its like trying to put brains in statues.....

It wasn’t vaping it was a celebratory cigar which the coaches brought for the team (there was videos too of Nathan and James Tedesco smoking too about 3 hours after the game in the change room …look at the damn photo Mal is is the corner …if he was doing something wrong Mal or the other coaches would’ve put a stop to it …

Stop being a damn Karen and leave all the players alone they did nothing wrong they have gone nearly 8 months playing football for you to enjoy let them have their down time 🤦‍♀️

The article I saw said it was vaping, and no mention was made of any other players partaking.... obviously, based on whay you're saying, that's not the case. It caught me out, as im sure it did others. I guess the media got their desired result. Apologies if you thought I was trying to make something out of nothing. I'll try and find the article.

You may have misunderstood the intent of what I was saying. I honestly don't care what players do in their down time, Storm or otherwise. Unfortunately there's always cameras and there are d%$#heads in the media that can't wait to paint things in a negative light.

If the guys want to snort Columbian marching powder off a lady of the nights backside whilst wearing a pink tutu, I don't care about it one little bit..... go for broke so long as it's done behind closed doors without cameras and noone is getting hurt. ...... otherwise some prick will find a way to spin it into a negative light, as they've done here. Especially if it's a Melbourne player

Tbh though, I do have to wonder which genius decided cigars in the changerooms were a good idea. It was always going to raise a few eyebrows somewhere lol

The photo from bloke in a bar was deleted there was one article I read which also magically disappeared…

All I’m saying is after 25 games 4 finals (for some) 3 soo games then 3 WC games and the final a cigar in the change room isn’t a bad thing

I'm struggling to find the article I saw as well, wonder if they received complaints....

Look, I agree, they're totally welcome and should be allowed to celebrate. If that's beers and cigars, go for it. But old Trafford being a no smoking venue, someone didn't think things thru before they went dolling out cigars to the lads either.

Im just glad to hear it wasn't Munster doing old school Munster things and it was part of a group celebration.
