Male star Tom Trbojevic could not help but look up to an unfortunate TV fork that made his teammate a popular topic.
Male star Tom Trbojevic couldn’t help but sneak under an unfortunate tongue-in-cheek during the Dally M Awards 2021 Monday night.
Trbojevic was somehow overshadowed by a funny fork that has made his teammate Josh Aloiai a trend topic on social media.

The moment NRL supremo Peter V’landys seemed to have a bad moment while reading a teleprompter during the live broadcast of the Fox League, Trbojevic giggled, and it soon made rugby league fans everywhere on social media crack gags.
The Manly defender was seen trying to suppress a smile as the cameras focused on him after the erroneous statement.
Australian Rugby League Commission chief V’landys read out the final two rounds of voting for the Dally M Player of the Year award when he came to a complete standstill and read the Manly forward’s name.
His short pause before reading the name “Oshay Olay” to receive votes created a monster.
The phrase “Oshay Olay” was quickly on trend on Twitter as every fool in the game got laughed at.
Blocked by tweets included some impressive photoshop jobs that seem to be sure Aloiai’s “Oshay Olay” nickname holds up well.
Trbojevic had to make amends quickly when he was announced as the Dally M player of the year just minutes later.
I start by saying what an honor it is to win this award, ”said Trbojevic in his award speech. “I just read the previous winners and it is quite special to be recognized among the list. I never think it will sink in.
“I start by thanking the NRL and the Queensland Government, what they have done over the last three months has been incredible. To the male boys, Dessie (Hasler) and Chez (Daly Cherry-Evans), I could not have done it without you. This medal is a recipient for all your hard work and effort.
“To the family at home, mom and dad, you know how much I love and miss you. I appreciate everything you have done for me over the years and this medal is on the back of everything you have done for me and without you two I would not get it. Thank you so much. ”
There used to be some ups and downs as the biggest stars in the game and their partners walked the red carpet on their way into the black tie event.
