“It’s not fair!” claimed Napa.
“When Boonie broke the record there was no RSA (Responsible Service of Alcohol) laws, and Hackett was on a flight without a stopover, so he couldn’t get kicked off. I reckon I would of broken Boonie’s record if they gave me a chance and then I could of won the Frownlow.”
In Napa’s favour is the fact that he was one of the young Queensland players dropped from the representative squad for breaking curfew at the emerging Origin camp earlier this year.
Th questions remains through; has he done enough to defeat the 60 other footballers who have so far been nominated for The Frownlow Medal?
