Supporters of Origin winners in a state
THERE is more at stake in tonight’s State of Origin series decider than just the glory of supporting the winning team for the gents at K & R Plumbing Supplies.
If Queensland win, Blue’s boys Wayne Farrugia and Brett Spies would be taken to with a razor and lose their eyebrows while sporting new red dresses, while Maroons supporters Richard Mackay and Adrian Black would cop the same punishment if NSW were victorious.
Despite Queensland going in as the solid favourites in tonight’s match, Mr Spies was not so quietly confident.
“I believe Wayne and I are very safe,” he said.
“It’s the aging Queensland side; they’ll be in the line for the pension by next year.”
Mr Mackie was also oozing confidence but said there would be no problem in taking the punishment if the Maroons failed to take out the game.
“We Queenslanders stick together and a bet is a bet,” Mr Mackay said.
All of the gents said if their team didn’t come through on the night, they would take their punishments like (wo)men and would wear the dresses proudly.
Mr Mackay said both Mr Spies and Mr Farrugia would look equally as attractive in their new dresses come Thursday.
And there would be no drawn-on eyebrows to hide the bald spots.
With one win a piece so far in the series, the NSW supporters have already been subjected to having the Queensland flag flying high at the workplace after a game one win by the home side.
The Maroons supporters have delved in the world of women’s wear, after a NSW win in game two saw them spend the following day in skirts.
Mr Mackay said the bets were decided by the four men with the stakes getting higher as the series continued.
