Social Media Is Having A Field Day Over This Incident Involving Brandon Smith
Melbourne Storm hooker Brandon Smith has left a poor toddler in tears after hilariously stealing his lollipop.
And fans on social media can't contain themselves.
Ahead of his side's 36-24 victory over the Parramatta Eels in the NRL Finals, New Zealand international Smith was captured on camera doing the unthinkable.
As his team were making their way onto the bus in Queensland, footage emerged of the 24-year-old pinching a lollipop from the grasp of a young Storm fan who was there to support the team.
Clearly a stitch-up, Smith can be seen leaving the scene swiftly before the toddler bursts into tears.
Incredibly, though, it turns out the kid was actually the grandson of Storm head coach Craig Bellamy.
Knowing this, Smith decided to have some fun.
"They had a little wall for us before we got on the bus to go away for our trip to play at Suncorp (Stadium)," Smith said.

While Nine said: "He's flogged a lollipop from Bellamy's grandson!"
