NRL Cult Hero Offers To Sell Premiership Ring To Pay For All His Beers

Brandon Smith had just won his first NRL Premiership with the Melbourne Storm.

And in the words of the great Victor Radley, there was only one thing on his mind: "Beers, beers and more beers".

As far as all-time post-game interviews go, Smith now joins Sydney Roosters star Radley in the conversation for the most memorable - and for good reason too.

Rugby league cult hero Smith, also known by many as 'The Cheese', stole the show after his side's 26-20 victory over the Penrith Panthers in the NRL Grand Final.


While he didn't hold back in slating his own on-field performance, Smith's attention quickly turned to a more important topic - his performance during the team's boozy celebrations.

"It was pretty good, I mean I played pretty s*** tonight but I got the ring," Smith told Nine's Brad Fittler.

"It's for sale, I need to pay for all the beers I'm about to drink.


"I can't wait to take this home to my mum and dad. Everything they sacrificed to put me in this position I'm in, so this is definitely for them.

"I'm super stoked and I just can't wait to get on the piss with all the boys.

"I'll take anyone (as a drinking partner) as long as they'll drink a lot."


And the loveable larrikin wasn't done there.

He also took his time in the spotlight to have a cheeky dig at Storm head coach Craig Bellamy.

"To the captain (Cameron Smith), I hope he can play on," Smith added.

"I know it's a tough situation for me but I wouldn't mind him carrying me to another couple of rings, I don't think we should force him out of the game he should decide what he wants to do."


"To Craig (Bellamy), he does nothing pretty much all year. Smithy does all the coaching so he's just getting paid lots of money to do piss all."

An instant classic.
