He said this in reference to Sonny Bill Williams. WTF was he thinking? Awful man. And we are a secular nation, Old Man.
Shortly after the February 29 show, fellow broadcaster Nathan Rarere posted online: “Murray Deaker stated last night that one of the reasons he doesn’t like Sonny Bill is … ‘He is a Muslim, in a so-called Christian country, and that makes me uncomfortable’.”
League fans took to an online forum with similar comments, one writing: “Deaker is obliterating Sonny Bill … Deaker said ‘I don’t like that he’s Muslim in a so-called Christian country’.”
Deaker refused to elaborate when contacted by the Sunday Star-Times.
