Congratulations to big Oatesy, being voted BHQ's Player of the Year for 2022.
What's this about? I don't recall this discussion.Interestingly when he was called into the squad for Game II he rubbed the coaching staff the wrong way. He didn't appear to be switched on at all and I presume he was considered a distraction. They were impressed with the way that he responded to his selection in Game III and how he cut all that out and focused on his job.
Any chance there's a link? Would like to read/listen to that if it's somewhere.Yeah Smithy brought it up on the Captain's Run after the Origin series. He was putting over all the players and the topic turned to Corey Oates and I found the response really interesting.
