PAUL GALLEN SAYS HE’D PUNCH NATE MYLES AGAIN
It was the most infamous fight in rugby league history, but Paul Gallen says he wouldn’t change anything from his 2013 State of Origin scrap with Nate Myles.
Gallen landed a solid one-two on the Queensland Maroons forward’s chin at ANZ Stadium in that year’s opener, and was suspended for one match for his troubles.
But he says he’d do it all over again if he had the chance.
