Rooting...

With the speculation about who will feature in the Lions 2nd Test against Oz now ended by Warren Gatland’s unexpectedly brave team selection, we move on to more serious matters…

The government of Victoria has, it seems, had a huge sense of humour failure over a giant painted advertisement located directly under Melbourne's international flight path which depicts a winking kangaroo “cuddling” a lion from behind alongside the slogan “Rooting for the Wallabies.”

The 170m x 90m advertisement is the work of a certain betting company (who shall, for reasons of impartiality, remain nameless but whose identity shouldn’t be that difficult to work out) and prompted the “appalled” Victoria government to threaten legal action to have it removed. 

Sadly the ad has now gone but no doubt the nameless betting company are laughing all the way to the bank...
