HI, it’s Eorl here.
First of all, I’ve got a confession to make.
I can’t really remember too much about what’s been going on at the Giants this week!
And that makes it fairly difficult to try and tell you what’s be going on around the place.
But, to be honest, it isn’t really my fault. You can blame London Broncos’ Antonio Kaufusi for that.
I’ve now found out that he’s a pretty formidable opponent, and we certainly didn’t do each other much good with one confrontation last weekend.
Early in the second half he put a good hit on me, but as we made contact we ended up clashing heads.
I managed to get up and play the ball, but I was seeing stars – big time!
Fortunately, I did pull myself together relatively quickly, especially after I saw Antonia was all over the place too.
But even though I was able to carry on, I have felt a bit groggy this week and a lot of what’s gone on has become a bit of a blur.
On top of that, I could also lose the tag as the sexiest man at the Giants as a result of that particular challenge!
That’s because I’m now boasting two black eyes, as well as bruising on other parts of my face.
Yes, my good looks have deserted me this week, I’m afraid.
Unfortunately, the shock of this and the consequences of the bang have made me forget exactly why Michael Lawrence (pictured) is this week’s Helmet of the Week.
In fact, it only dawned on me the other week he’d earned the title when I saw him running around in the shirt the other day.
From what I recall, it was something to do with him being nicknamed ‘Bruno’, after boxer Frank Bruno.
Apparently, it was something to do with the fact he’s forgotten himself why we called him this.
But I really can’t say for sure, because if anyone is feeling punch drunk at the moment – a boxer’s occupational hazard, of course – it has to be me!
