I don't know about anybody else but I thoroughly enjoyed the verbal stoush between Richie Williams and Braith Anasta before and during the ANZAC day clash yesterday. I've gotta say though, both of them were right on the money with their comments. However, no matter how rubbish Anasta is on the field Richie Williams is starting to come across as a cocky little ****, starting way back in round one when he flipped Preston Campbell the bird on the way to the try line for the Dragons only win so far this season. For those who don't know, before the match yesterday Williams started a little battle between the two when he commented that Anasta is a shadow of the player he once was. Which is a spot on observation but like any over-rated player you can't just sit down and cop that sort of treatment. Especially after leaving the games biggest forward pack behind and achieving all of about 8 wins as the Roosters blue chip play maker. Anasta then went on to comment after the match, "For someone who has done absolutely nothing in the game, it was a pretty big call, I think his performance today probably showed what he is as a person. He'll probably be back in reserve grade next week, where he belongs. He wanted to talk the talk and he didn't walk the walk. It was garbage. It just fires you up even more and fires the team up so he did a good job for us today, Richie Williams. It's a pity for his team-mates having to put up with that. They would have been fired up for a match and they're all great blokes and their team-mate is a loud mouth like that. It doesn't help." Theres just something so thoroughly enjoying about watching a 'loud mouth' and a 'has been' going toe to toe with verbal sprays while both their clubs try and pick themselves up off the bottom of the ladder. Anasta is not a shadow of the play he once was. In fact in my opinion he never was a good player. Williams was right on the money. The question is though, despite how right he was is Richie Williams entitled to carry on the way he has after less than a handful of games in a side that's got one win under the belt this season? I say no, but god it was good to see Anasta told to his face just how bad everyone really thinks he is.
