Sportsday hosts call for premiership medal change
Sportsday has taken up a new fight.
Gerard Healy and Sam McClure want every player who plays a game during a premiership-winning season to get a medal on grand final day.
Both admit they’ve changed their views on the matter in recent years.
“You can’t have the coaches preaching ‘squad, squad, squad’ all year and then through fate, or a bit of ill luck, or form, injury, or match-up, you miss out,” Gerard Healy said.
And while it was expected the issue may create plenty of debate on the open line, the support just kept coming and coming for the idea.
