Being a NSW fan living in Brisbane has been a punish over the past decade for Daryl Hillard and his family, he’s copped it left, right and centre from the locals but he’s finally made a stand.
After hearing of his plight, online bookmaker sportsbet.com.au has come to the party by painting Daryl’s house blue, just in time for Origin 1.
NSW rugby league great Michael O’Connor, himself a QLD resident in Noosa, applied the finishing touches on the paintjob.
“I take my hat off to Daryl. He’s a braver man than me. I hope he’s got his insurance sorted because the locals aren’t going to be impressed,” said O’Connor.
It’s an act of defiance that the neighbours, as well as a whole state will be filthy with.
“I’m sick and tired of being treated as a second-class citizen. I know this’ll ruffle a few feathers but I don’t care to be honest. I’m a Blue and I’m not afraid to show it!”, said home owner Daryl Hilliard.
“There’s no need for the pest inspectors to turn up because cockroaches are definitely welcome at this blue house,” said sportsbet.com.au’s Christian Jantzen.
