People Are Furious Scott Morrison Had Time To Attend The Footy But Not March 4 Justice Rally

The Prime Minister was seen hitting up the footy over the weekend after a tumultuous few weeks in the top job.

Scott Morrison looked positively joyous while watching his beloved Cronulla Sharks take on the Parramatta Eels at Bankwest Stadium and even paid the winning team a visit in the changing rooms.

Fox Sports cameras picked up the moment he was egged on to skol a beer from one of the Eels players, however they also captured a less-than-impressed Eels staffer.

Parramatta sports scientist Tahleya Eggers was seen with a pretty savage scowl on her face as Mr Morrison met some of the players in the room.


After her reaction went viral on social media, Eggers took to Twitter to explain how she was feeling.

"Proud to claim this one," she said. "I will not respect a man who has the time to shake hands of men who have won a football match but is 'too busy' to attend the March for Justice."

The Eels was forced to investigate the tweet, even after it had been deleted.


The NRL club released a statement a short time later confirming no disciplinary action would be taken.

"Tahleya was responding to a social meme that was not of her making," an Eels spokesman said in the report. "The club is comfortable with her clarifying her personal position and we consider the matter now closed."

But Ms Eggers' reaction seemed to be shared by a bunch of people across social media.


Many asked why the Prime Minister was able to make time to watch the footy, yet was unable to attend the important March 4 Justice rally earlier this month.

LadiesWhoLeague wrote on Twitter: "I'm sick to my stomach. Scott Morrison doesn't have time for women but has time to hang around with the Sharkies at the footy. I'm disgusted."


Another user added: "Can go to footy. Can meet with Sharks players. Can go into the Parramatta dressing rooms. Cannot meet with women who are in his doorstep."

A third said: "I can't believe some of the comments here and that young lady shouldn't have to delete her tweet. @ScottMorrisonMP s treatment of ladies is embarrassing and disgraceful. It's not that hard to treat everyone equal."

Some hit back saying Mr Morrison deserves to have 'a night off', however, considering there were tens of thousands of women marching for a massively significant issue to them, many believe the Prime Minister should have made time for both.
