Something you need to know…

Melbourne Storm player looks like the Hulk…

Scroll down slowly and think of who I am. I will play for Melbourne in the NRL this year.

I am ripped and I’m strong. I’m not quite clean shaven but I’m not running a full beard. I’ve played international football and in grand finals.

My six pack would make Marky Mark proud and my biceps could belong to Arnie. Ok, that’s an exaggeration, but they are pretty big.

Ok, open your eyes. Who do you see. Cameron Smith? No. Billy Slater. Nope. Chambers? Jess Bromwich? Ahh Vunivalu? Wrong, wrong, wrong.

I’m Sam Kasiano, I’ve lost 15kgs and I’m gonna have a hell of a year! Bellamy strikes again.

Yup, that’s me. F U Des!
