Rugby League player Greg Inglis has called for former player and TV commentator Andrew Johns to be barred from any further involvement in the game.
Inglis was the subject of John’s infamous “black c***” remark during the NSW State of Origin camp which led NSW player Timana Tahu to quit the squad.
Queensland star Inglis told Channel Nine that he feels the channel’s former commentator Johns should be banned from any further rugby league roles.
”It’s definitely not a good attitude. I say no. There is no excuse for racism in any sport, any code or any culture.” Inglis said.
”I’ve been described as a c*** and it’s not called for,” he continued. ”I’m just a bloke who loves his sport and loves doing what I do – that’s making my family proud and making my indigenous culture proud.
”Some people are tucking their tails between their legs and running away from it. You’ve got to take a stance and draw a line in the sand. We’ve been copping it since the day, pretty much, our ancestors were born. It’s about time we stand up – and I think Timana has taken a stance right now.”
