Daily Telegraph - League Central

Good morning Christian.

I am a keen NRL (long suffering sharkie) fan and avid reader of the DT online.  Today's article on Billy was very good however I was irked with a cliche that has spread in footballing circles and appears in your article. The phrase "... has grown another leg this year" is incorrect, and has come from the phrase in reference to the Queenslanders in early State of Origin matches "... seem to grow another foot" this was in height, as opposed to an extra appendage.

The additional height would be seen to be an advantage, as the players become harder to tackle and much stronger (less likely to be coathangered) whereas in nature a superfluous leg is often a hindrance and life is mercifully short.

I have added two photos to better illustrate this.

Kind regards and Keep up the good work.
