Bets paid up after Origin II

David Kemp lost his Origin bet and ended up wearing a blue wig for the duration of yesterday instead of his beloved Maroons jersey.

IN THE latest state versus state showdown, Queenslanders were left red faced and feeling a little blue after New South Wales won Game 2 Wednesday night.

The first to admit he would have preferred the Sunshine State to win so he didn't have to paint his finger nails blue was Adrian Black.

"I have been getting looks from customers all day and many were not game enough to say anything," Mr Black said after losing the bet with his workmates.

"I am looking forward to getting my revenge though.

"Having the home game advantage is always good."

K&R Plumbing Supplies manager Wayne Farrugia said Mr Black even painted his nails himself.

"I'm just a little worried about how expertly he applied it," he said.

Mr Farrugia said it was the workmates' bet for the next and final Origin stoush which would provide interesting viewing.

"The supporters of the losing team will have to push poo up a hill with their nose," he said.

Across town David Kemp at B&K Motors also sported the winning team's colours.

"I had a bet with Anthony Robinson and whoever's team lost had to wear the other's coloured wig," Mr Kemp said.

"This time I lost.

"I have had a lot of people taking photos of me too."

Mr Kemp said he already had Mr Robinson's punishment sorted for Game 3.

"If Queensland wins his delivery truck will be dressed up in maroon but I don't know what I will have to do," he said.

"I'm not too worried about next time though because New South Wales won't win."
