WATCH: Warriors centre blames his undies for recent losses, takes destroying them to a new frontier

Warriors 21/05/2018

Anthony Gelling reckons he's figured out what's responsible for the Warriors recent losses. 

He took to the ol' Twitter anouncinf: "Last weekend, I realised every time I've played in a certain pair of undies, my team has lost," 

So, he terminated the curse using a variety of methods. We're talking exorcising, burning, shooting, blending,freezing and sledge hammering. 

Rog is going to be feeling bloody lucky we only deported him over his alleged curse on NZ Cricket...

Every athlete has their superstitions, whether it's eating specific food before a game or wearing a lucky piece of clothing.

But Warriors rugby league centre Anthony Gelling has the opposite.

After suffering a series of losses and then picking up an untimely injury, he's pointed the finger of blame at a particularly unlucky garment and taken out his frustrations on social media. 

"Last weekend, I realised every time I've played in a certain pair of undies, my team has lost," he tweeted.

"This week, I wore them for training instead and rolled my ankle during captain's run. Time to break the curse."

Gelling, 27, posted a video - ripping off a well-known scene from the Office Space movie - that showed him inflicting cruel and unusual punishment on the offending briefs.

In quick succession, he shot them with a rifle, exorcised them, burned them, blended them, froze them and finally smashed them with a sledge hammer.

Gelling has made five appearances for the Warriors in his debut NRL season and scored a try during their 20-12 win over the Dragons.

Before joining the Warriors, he played 115 games for the Wigan Warriors in England's Super League.

While in England, he earned a diploma in television and film production.
