To other news now and Timana has spoken for the first has spoken for the first time about why he has walked out of the New South Wales State of Origin kampb. The NRL blamed a directed at the Queensland player Greg

player Greg Inglis by the Blues assistant coast Andrew Today Tahu said it was not isolated incident, and he was determined to make a stand against racism. Timana Tahu's actions have spoken loudly. Now his words are adding to his deeds. This isn't about me deeds. This isn't about me or Andrew arresting racism arresting racism and standing up for my beliefs . His beliefs were offended last week when Johns made Johns made a racist remark about Queensland's Greg Inglis, but Tahu says his walkout wasn't over an isolated incident. It was not just incident. It was not just one racial comment directed at individual that oh fended me. The remarks were recommended at various races and various races and the situation I encountered was totally unacceptable. The Parramatta centre says his motivation comes from those closest to him I believe I'm a role for children and to do this, to show show my kids this type of behaviour is wrong. For doing so, his club says it's proud. We support him 110% and we've obviously been with him for the last few days and we will continue to be and we will continue to be and we look forward to him being back at training on training on Wednesday. But training could be tricky. The Eels employ Andrew Johns as obviously an issue that address in the next week or so. Tahu's admiration from circles beyond rugby league. From Timana rugby league. From Timana Tahu, I think it's fantastic I think it's fantastic for him to stand up for what he believes in. And Adam believes in. And Adam Goodes warns the AFL is yet to warns the AFL is yet to rid its game of racism. We've come such a long way in AFL in Tim terms of that, but it of that, but it still happens, and that's object of object of Johns' racist comment is training hard in Queensland. He is quite a determined bloke, we all know that, but I that, but I guess given the comments during the week, I hope he comes out and have blinder of a game.
