“Townsend used to give it to him, but cop this Townsend,” Tedesco said, per NRL.com.
“He showed her how to play soccer.
“They were chasing him but he didn’t mind if you knocked him down. He will always destroy you.”

“This is Tedesco trash,” Townsend tweeted.
“The only person I spoke to on the Roosters field was JWH.”
