Willie Mason ignites war of words

Willie Mason Daine Laurie War of WordsClubless Willie Mason is still managing to make enemies, this time with Penrith new recruit Daine Laurie – after calling the former Tigers prop a “A poor excuse for a footballer and a drunk!”

After a solid pre-season, it’s been reported Laurie is settled in well at the Panthers under coach Matt Elliott.

And by all accounts, the clubless Mason shouldn’t be picking arguments with anyone – let alone the reborn Laurie.

Now weighing in at 118kg – a revitalised Laurie has said “I hope Willie Mason is signed by the Cowboys, because I can’t wait to meet him in Round 2.”

The match up would be a juicy one, with the young buck Laurie known to go ‘full tilt’ on the field, up against Willie Mason who would be desperately trying to re-establish himself as a genuine star once more.

But it’s all merely a possibility at this stage – with talks around Mason’s future still on-going, while the Cowboys haven’t yet ruled him out – the Newcastle Knights are said to be mulling over the possibility of signing the big prop forward.
