Gordon Thalys had a cheeky exchange with Cowboys coach Todd Payten over the minutes restrictions of Star Rock’s Jason Taumarollo prior to the clash with the sea eagle.
After Round 1, Payten famously announced that he would reduce the minutes to improve Taumarollo’s longevity, given that Taumarollo had a contract with the club until he was 34 in 2027.
Peyten has received a lot of criticism of the controversial decision, and Tauma Lolo’s minutes have steadily increased during the mid-season revival of the Cowboys.

Thalys couldn’t resist the slightly cheeky bargain at Peyten in a pre-match interview asking questions about Tauma Lolo’s upcoming minutes.
“What about Jason Tauma Lolo coming back and how many minutes he’s been playing?” Thalys asked Payten in the Fox League before looking at the rest of the panel and pulling a cheerful face. It was.
“Did you put it?”

“Twelve weeks ago, Mate, Gordy, come on,” Peyten laughed and counterattacked.
“There is science behind it, so there are no companions,” Thalys intervened.
“I haven’t talked to Jason in the last 11 weeks, so I’ll just look at what’s going on tonight,” Peyten replied in Gest.
