Former Super League and NRL great pulls out of reality TV program due to serious injury

Former Hull KR and NRL great Willie Mason has pulled out of reality TV series SAS Australia due to serious injury.

The 41-year-old ruptured his left pectoral muscle in pre-training for the show and will now undergo surgery, but has – in defiance – committed to going on the program for the next season once he gets himself fit.

“I can deal with pain all right. I don’t freak out and start crying and all of that stuff. Injuries are a part of life. It is like a sunken hole on my bicep and chest,” Mason said.

“I was disappointed because of the amount of work I put in,” he continued. “I didn’t approach it like it was just a show, I want to win the thing, I want to get through the 14 days and so the amount of work I put in makes it disappointing.”

Mason famously joined Hull KR in 2011, but played just six times before being de-registered given the fact that he was unable to obtain a Tongan passport that would have enabled him to come off the Robins’ overseas quota.
