WATCH: First It Was BoJo Now It's ScoMo

BY Philip Bendon  ·  Thursday May 19, 2022

First it was BoJo now we have ScoMo! Australian Prime Minister Scott Morrison was out on the election trail recently as he took part in a children’s football match.

As the ball is being passed around at the usual pace of a children’s football match, Morrison sees his opportunity to line up the child with the ball.

It doesn’t take a genius to guess what happened next as Morrison collides with the child in what can only be described as a high shot.

In Morrison’s defence the height difference was very reminiscent of Eben Etzabeth tackling on Cheslin Kolbe.

Morrison who just days before described himself as a bulldozer did get attempt to wrap the shoulders but it was a clear hit to the head which would’ve left the officials with no choice but to issue a red card.

The hit itself was very reminiscent of a tackle that British PM Boris Johnson put in a few years ago.

With all of the discussion surrounding Rugby Australia’s recent proclamation that they would be poach NRL players, perhaps Morrison may too get a look in.
