It’s been a big week for Penrith Panthers star and Samoa Rugby League World Cup star Brian To’o.
He signed a new deal with the NRL Champions, who are chasing a third consecutive title in 2023 after getting married.
However, he made the bold decision to livestream the wedding in which Penrith and Samoa teammate Jarome Luai acted as best man.
Luai made a somewhat controversial best man’s speech, and has now been forced to apologise.
He took to social media to say: “Just wanna apologise for the words I spoke last night at my brothers wedding and how ashamed I am for embarrassing both families and my own. The excitement of the occasion definitely got the better of me and I took it to far. Not much I can do about it now but be a man about this mistake and learn from it. Apologies to everyone I’ve disrespected this is something I will always regret.
“Love you guys.”
The speech sparked plenty of talk online.
“My uso loves himself. If his phone gallery gets leaked one day, that’ll be the proof,” Luai said according to Zerotackle, after making comments on the personal hygiene of To’o that the Australian publication didn’t want to print.
“Seven weeks in England, walked into the room and basically all I seen was my uso taking selfies, my uso… face-timing (fiancée) Moesha.
“Sometimes I walk in, I hear things in the toilet,”
Luai reportedly back-tracked some of those comments soon after, following some stern looks from To’o.
“Chill, chill. I was joking, I’m about to get a hiding,” he said.
