EXCLUSIVE | Brailey becomes a Knight for the night

Here’s the truth about last night’s shock entry of Jayden Brailey into the Knights side at the last-minute.

Jayden Brailey was quietly going about his business surrounded by mates as a spectator in the crowd at McDonalds Stadium last night.

Remember the kid just got off the plane earlier in the afternoon following the Sharks 18-15 win over New Zealand Warriors the night before.  A credible effort to drive up the motorway to Novacastrian territory.

All these people saying Fox Sports elite commentary team got the player’s name wrong ARE WRONG!

This is the story…. a Knights staffer gave me the low-down on how Brailey became a Knight for the night.

“We spotted him in the crowd and thought – hey, it’s right on June 30… maybe he might want to test-drive wearing a Knights jumper”, said the unnamed official.

Brailey was having a reasonable game until a horrible injury struck the twenty-two year old down.  It was a horrible, horrible injury to the bloke.

It appears the test-drive went down like a lead balloon and Brailey will return better for the experience, and with that horrible knee injury, to the Sharkies.

His likely replacement is Slade Griffin when they take on the Eels back at McDonald Jones Stadium in a blockbuster on July 13.

BS is always on the ball with exclusives – the name you can trust to get the player information right!
