    Kryptonite is a fictional material synonymous with ones Achilles’ heel —the one weakness of an otherwise invulnerable hero. Billy Slater is anything but fictional! He’s the real deal, a future immortal, he has no Kryptonite!

  • Danny carroll

    Billy’s kryptonite is the AFL offering him millions to cross over codes makin lots coin, and not playin anymore state of origin!!!

  • Josh Mac

    Yes we all know that Slaterman used to be Gai’s trackwork man
    So the theory “Horses for Courses” doesn’t suit
    Well thats one down, now lets see, does he have a boot?
    He chips, he chases, at fast paces, and still he finds the line
    So now thats two theories down and still he’s doing fine
    The high ball up, I hear you say, has Slaterman done and dusted
    But those bombs are defused quick and easy, Slaterman is not flustered
    Those big boppers from south of the border are supposed to leave him shakin’
    but Slaterman just uses his pace before the ground starts quakin
    So four theories down and Slaterman still stands alone untouchable
    To say he lacks toughness is just totally laughable
    His tackles will stop a breakaway dead in its tracks
    So defense is not something Slaterman lacks
    Thats six theories now Slaterman beats, just so you know
    Now watch him lead Queensland to 7 IN A ROW
    So what Im saying is Slaterman has no Kryptonite
    Meaning that those pesky cockcroaches are in for one helluva night

  • Sean

    A brick wall!!!! But then again he would probably kick the ball over the wall and run around the other side catch it and still run past the nsw fullback too score the try!!!! Go the maroons!!!

  • Joey Z

    his biggest kryptonite is being forced to move to parramatta after another series of serious melbourne storm salary cap breaches. this in turn means his career goes into tatters like any “big name” player that has previously moved there (hard to remember who they are now, but to name a few- chris sandow, justin poore, timana tahu, carl webb, paul whatuira, willie tonga, ben roberts, mark riddell, brett finch, joe galuvao, wade mckinnon etc etc).

  • Sam Nightingale

    Billy Slater’s Kryptonite is salary cap breaches.

  • John Paul Ngo

    The salary cap.

  • Dean

    Loss of concentration due to laughing too hard at Ben Creagh running away from a fight.

  • Andrew Hastings

    A good woman and a Lygon Street kebab, and a phone call from the GWS…not in any particular order.

  • Martin

    Obviously after 6 years in a row it isn’t anyone in the NSW team, that’s for sure. His only possible kryptonite, which means something that stops him from winning would be The Cheating NSW REFS or Officials.

  • Marek

    Matt Orford hahaha I mean seriously how can u loose dally m
    Medal to Matt Orford. If the blues picked Orford this origin
    Slater would sh!$ himself hahaha

  • joe walton

    I would say it is jaryd hayne steam rolling him from 20 out. They say billy is the best well hayne at his best is his equal. Go the blues

  • Joshua Geering

    His Kryptonite would have to be an injury to JT and Cronk. With out them i think he would not be as good.

  • Geoff Berry


  • Andrew

    Chuck Norris!

  • Brendan Quirk

    The Warriors

  • vic bruce

    slaters are hard to exterminate but no cockroach would be foolish enough to give him a spray as it might also be their kryptonite

  • Alex Faulkner

    Slater’s only(!) kryptonite would be a one on one with Chuck Norris running at him…but then again, Norris is everyone’s kryptonite!

  • barry best

    Trying to stop a try from a kick… If he can’t get there he will take ten in the bin to stop them from scoring

  • Billy’s Mum

    Bily’s weakness has always been for jam rolls. the problem is that when he eats them they go straight through him. He used to live on them as a kid…how else would he have kept his weight down…Wednesday he will eat four jam rolls for breakfast, be on the toilet all day and lose enough weight that he can run 10x as fast as anyone should be able to. Remove the jam rolls…remove Billy Slater.

  • elliot moses

    slaters kryptonite is hes afraid of the dark

  • Glen

    Slaterman is susceptible to a Jarryd Hayne headbutt!

  • Matt

    Slater’s kryptonite is over confidence, when he believes he can do no wrong and goes for one handed pickups and miracle offloads on his own line he starts making costly mistakes.

  • lloyd

    playing within the salary cap.

  • Mick McKay

    His own broad shoulders, keep getting in the way and knocking other players over in the in goal, thus putting him in the bin for 10

  • Catherine

    Billy slater is billy slaters kyriptonite hes mid game brain snaps leg first tackles and late tackles are his weakness nsw only has to sit back and pray cause nothing else will stop the champion

  • Elijah

    A 9 Iron

  • Ben Hollett

    Temptation!!! He is so speedy around the field that sometimes he tackles a player without the ball and ends up getting sinbinned. Temptation is his Kryptonite!

    And also maybe Hayne, because slater is more of a plane than the Hayne plane therefor whenever he tackles hayne he seems to get agressive! On ya slater!!!! Best Player in the world.

  • saad saad

    Craig Bellamy telling him he cant play in the origin because his to important to the storm

  • leigh williams

    Billy slaters weakness is midgets, when they are around he can finally feel like a big man

  • Craig Chamberlain

    His waekness are those stupid suzuki ads he does now and again

  • gopu

    His lack of a neck……has anyone noticed the hunchback from north Qld. This lack of neck length will clearly lead to slaters downfall. When T-rex goes for a hit on slaters neck area his head will be rolled of its neckless perch….due to lack of neck length.

  • Clarkieb

    His pre and post match interviews. Arguably the most repeated and cleche dribble that falls out this cane toads mouth. “Ive still got a lot of improving to do”. Shut up mate we all know you are the best player in the world. Your humbleness is almost as retarded as Ben Creigh getting another run for the blues……

  • Michael

    Blue m&m’s.

  • Peter McKenzie

    im not sure if Billy has a weakness if i had to have a guess id say CHUCK NORRIS because he can stop the world by snapping his fingers

  • Scott McCarthy

    Like superman, Slaterman is often relied upon to defuse income meteors coming in from impossible heights. Not even the mastermind Lux Lewther from the Penrith Panthers can match Slaterman for skill and strength. If Slaterman were to have a weakness, undoubtedly it would be the constant exposure to the silverware that is piling up in his cabinet. Only after he has won everything will Slaterman ever retire.

  • John Taylor

    His kryptonite will be the inability to stop laughing when dives over to score his 4th try , as Qld give the Cockroaches another lesson in how to play rugby league.The laughter will become contageous, and spread throughout the whole QLD side, leading to NSW scoring, and at least getting on thescoreboard, as the Maroons roll around in hysterics at the Cockies pathetic display for the seventh year in a row !!

  • Daniel Hirsimaki


  • Tom

    Billy’s kryptonite was going on that show “Rexona Australia’s Greatest Athlete” and beating Wendell Sailor. That guy does enough mincing around the place as it is without you giving his big arse a slapping and allowing him brag that he was beaten by the legend that is Billy “Slaterman” Slater!!!!! :)

  • http://Sportsbet Chris Tiley

    His nuts!

  • Andrew Gardiner

    His kryptonite will be sportsbet is offering their punters money back if he scores. He’ll get the yips!!

  • Mark Thierry

    Billy’s kryptonite is his alter ego ‘Bobby’ Slater which comes out every now and then. Like Billy, Bobby also plays fullback for Melbourne, Queensland and Australia, but only reveals this when a howling error is made by the custodian. Bobby’s most famous moments have included the 2008 World Cup final when he tried the miracle pass, beating up Dragons players to cost Billy the Dally M and any error under the high ball.

    Billy as overcome Bobby on many occasions to be “Slaterman”, but occasionally (like The Hulk) Bobby gets loose.

  • lenny

    I know you guys love bad puns so i’m going with lex blue-thor, a man who’s been missing for a while now

  • ed

    a broken leg…

  • Clint Solah

    His weakness is the mighty Cronulla sharks defence line

  • Matthew Reinhard

    Slaterman wasn’t even allowed into the justice league, because he is in a league of his own, but his kryptonite would have to be Nicole Slater in a cat women suite.

  • Kevin Locke from the New Zealand Warriors

    Me, I am the number one fullback in the game

  • Nathan Freebody

    Without attacking the poor bloke like most of the other comments. If you read the attached article ( and goto the part of it where Johns is interviewing him after the test match where he had a brain explosion(like all athletes do whether your the greatest ever or not) and sealed the victory for the kiwis. Short version – In the article johns was almost shocked in billys reaction as he was bubbly and had moved on with his decision and more than likely had learnt from the situation at the time. As johns also pointed out in the article I believe his only
    Kryptonite billy slater himself has is his strengths and he is so confident in his decisions and ability that he may get complacent and therefore work as kryptonite to himself. If you read the article closely, in the quotations marks it will point out that Billy’s strength are more so his weaknesses at times. As pointed out by johns, ‘the great ones have no consequences’.

  • Peter Blakeney

    Billy’s kryptonite is the fact he cant do it for NSW, he only has these super powers in a Melbourne or Queensland jumper.

  • Stuart Grey

    Tatts, he is only bloke who dosent have them, why?

  • Bryan Sweeney

    Billy’s weakness is Duck Fat, on roast spuds,
    feed him that for a week he won’t jump for Carney’s high ball.

  • Joe Rossetti

    Salary Cap scandal

  • Joe Rossetti


  • Andrew Kent

  • http://sportsbet Mani Mehra

    He has a magic

  • Matthew Johnson

    Sometimes he finds himself sweeping around the back moving very lateral and pushes the pass. If he straightens up and finds an in runner look out. But other than that there are none ;)

  • Mitchell Ede

    The Queensland team

  • Robert Bita

    Billy’s kryptonite is obviously playing on a early Saturday afternoon as it limits his ability to bet all afternoon on the horses and backing his old boss Gai Waterhouse’s winning rides!!!

  • Aaron Williams

    Peas, plain ole green peas. Get him near them and he play like Leon Davis on Geand Final day. Carrots are fine though.

  • roslyn ledger

    the salary cap

  • Leon

    Thinking he’s too good and taking risky plays just like he did in the 08 World Cup Final when he gifted New Zealand that crucial try.

  • Ben

    Consumption of 1000 big macs!!!

  • Matt Tuck

    Surely his kryptonite is the salary cap. Nothing hurts a Storm superstar like playing by the same rules as everyone else.

  • warren bailey

    Kryptonite is obviously Billy Slaters kryptonite as he obviously is the real SUPERMAN!!!

  • Kurt

    It is the kick into touch that’s the only way of stopping slater from his great returns

  • Craig Warburton

    This is easy, Billy the kid slater has one weakness and it is blue powerade, if he has blue powerade before or during a match he looses his ability to run fast, catch a bomb, get the ball back to the 20 metre line and slide into the line when on attack, blue powerade makes him cross eyed, we must make sure we put this in one of drink bottles next wednesday night, go the blues.

  • Chris

    His EGO
