Language games


Yesterday, we picked up the new details on Sam Kerr’s alleged racial altercation with a British cop, including the language she allegedly used… Some Kerr fans on social media were not at all fazed by it, and NSW Premier Chris Minns said that if he were called the same thing, he wouldn’t consider it racist – a comment at least one MP objected to. The Matildas’ captain’s club, Chelsea, says she has their “full support” during this “difficult time”. Elsewhere in potty-mouth news, the Roosters’ Spencer Leniu has apologised for using a racist slur against Broncos player Ezra Mam during their Las Vegas match over the weekend. “I want to apologise to Ezra and his family for using the word I did,” Leniu said. He is facing a long suspension when the NRL judiciary meets to consider the complaint on Tuesday night.
