A mildly-unpopular doctor’s son has lashed out at the in-form Wallabies this morning after he revealed to friends and family that he would’ve won ‘a significant amount of money’ on a weekend multi-bet if the boys in gold went down to Ireland on Saturday night.
“Very annoyed still,” said Curtis Mullholland III, a 28-year-old full-time-stay-at-home-son who enjoys the finer things in life such as his parent’s heated pool and gambling beyond his means.
“I love the Wallabies but I love money more. I had Ireland by 13 and they choked. I got every other tip right except for that game,”
“My mates said I deserve it for gambling against the fellas but yeah, I’m just trying to be smart about my punting. We went out on Dad’s boat the next day – which is something I love more than a DFO Lacoste sale – and even that failed to cheer me up.”
With that historic win, the national rugby union team leap-frogs the floundering English team to be ranked third behind the All-Blacks and the Irish.
Asked if he’d be willing to be against the Wallabies in their next contest this weekend, Mulholland said he’d weigh up his options.
“I’m not sure yet, but I’d imagine they’ll let them win so they’d be able to sell tickets to the third Test. Nothing is what it seems in the world of sport.”
More to come.
