If media reports are true, rugby league legend Brad Fittler is set to make a return to rugby league with the Sydney Roosters at the upcoming Auckland Nines.
Fittler’s return would be ten days after his forty-second birthday and ten years after last playing for the Sydney Roosters.
“I expect to get hammered,” Fittler said.
“I’ve been training with my 10-year-old, Demi. I’ve got a lot of work to do.”
The news is set to divide rugby league fans. Most will enjoy having a legend of the game playing in the tournaments while others will question whether ex-players should be involved in the weekend.
