SYDNEY - Colourful forward Willie Mason says he found a crotch grab on him by a rival player in a weekend Australian National Rugby League game "hilarious" and hopes no action will be taken.
The Manly Sea Eagles star downplayed the bizarre televised incident as a "reacquaintance" in which former teammate Korbin Sims pinched his penis towards the end of Manly's win over the Newcastle Knights on Sunday.
Mason said he was far from offended, found it funny and hoped no action would be taken.
"Offended? Please. I think it's hilarious," Mason told reporters of an incident that was a talking point in newspapers and on social media.
"I hope it doesn't come to anything because me and Korbin are really good mates. I knew what was going on -- I was talking to him while he was doing it.
"It was quite funny, actually. He's a good young kid and I hope nothing would be done about that."
