Former Brisbane Bronco three quarter Lachlan Maranta (pictured) says he hasn’t taken to heart criticism of his signing by super rugby club the Queensland Reds.

Former Wallaby and media personality Greg Martin described Marantas signing by the Reds as the worst decision he’d ever seen in the game.

Maranta though says the reality of life as a professional sportsperson is that you will receive criticism at times and he hasn’t taken it to heart.
