A Canterbury Bankstown recruiting scout returns from Kosovo raving about a new teenage super-star that he's seen in the war-torn country.
The Bulldogs are so convinced by the scout and so desperate for no-one else to snatch him up that they sign the boy right away.
The boy comes to Australia and arrives in Sydney for Saturday's game and is on the bench. With 10 minutes to go, one of the bulldogs, Rod Silva gets
injured and is stretchered from the ground. Steve Folkes points to the new boy and says, "This is your big chance, son. Go out and do the business for us."
The lad takes off his track-suit and takes to the field. In those dying minutes he's a revelation, scoring 3 tries. The Bulldogs get up and win the game and the crowd goes wild.
After the game Steve Folkes gives the new boy a big hug in the changing rooms. "Great performance, son. Go and give your parents a ring at home, they'll be so proud of you. You can use the phone in my office." The lad goes into the coach's office and rings his Mum. "Mum, I've just had the
best day in my life on debut. I scored 3 tries!!
You don't sound very happy though... why are you crying ? Is everything OK?" "No, son. Today has been the worst in my life....Your Dad has been
shot, they've raped your sister and the house has been burned to the ground."
"Oh no, Mum, that's terrible. I'm really sorry."
"Sorry! Sorry, so you Bloody well should be! You're the reason we moved to Bankstown in the first place!"
