Those cheeky wags over at Sportsbet have unveiled their latest homemade effort just in time for the NRL’s opening weekend.
Starring retired Broncos star Sam Thaiday as a handyman, it basically has a prod at all of the game’s ailments and, thankfully, was recorded before the Canterbury Bulldogs’ current woes.

Check it out below. Although you probably won’t get any of the gags if you don’t follow the NRL.
