’You want the truth?’: Cameron Munster explains story behind Brodie Croft injury

THIS would have been a tough one to explain.

“You want the truth?” Munster jokingly asked Darren Lockyer post-game.

“He decided to play lawn bowls the other day, and kept banging his knee up on the ground, and it blew up.

“His knee blew up like a balloon, and he couldn’t walk.

“He did his fitness test today and unfortunately he didn’t pass it, so Scott Drinkwater got his opportunity tonight on debut, and I thought he was outstanding in really key areas.

“He’s [Drinkwater] got some skills … hopefully he can back that up with just the little things in his game, and I reckon he’s got a big future in front of him.”
