Today I introduced legislation which will ensure veterans and their families keep getting the essential services and support they need. As a government we are determined to put veterans and their families first. @DVAAus

Great try to St George. Special mention to the refs for allowing the extremely dodgy play the ball two tackles earlier #sigh #NRLDragonsRaiders

Love how the team that makes a error not penalized , then goes on to score in that set. @FOXNRL Then not mentioned by commentators again. #smh #NRLDragonsRaiders

Shocking play the ball. Should have been pulled up but a terrible ref call leads to a Dragons try later in the set. Disgraceful reffing! #NRLDragonsRaiders
