Queensland Rugby League great, Scott ’40/20′ Minto has today confirmed his attendance to this year’s Betoota Advocate pub take over in Sydney’s Regent street.
The 38-year-old utility wing, centre and prop for the Central Coast Comets has said that he looks forward to having a few yarns with both the ex-pat Queenslander community and the born and raised New South Wales readers at the Lord Betoota ANZAC Day event.
The event, which also looks to include guest appearances from the likes of Anthony Albanese MP as well as Dean Widders, is expected to be the only venue in Sydney offering two-up on the actual street, like it is meant to be played.
Speaking to The Advocate today, Minto says he can’t wait to pull into Redfern and teach these lock-out wowsers how to tip a few jars of Betoota Bitter.
“I’ve been off the grog for a while now, but I think my body is in good enough shape to endure a one-off blow out” he says, while caressing his hand down his corrugated abs.
“I’ve got a hundred bucks for anyone who reckons they can beat me in a goanna wrestle”
“I’m the leaping Goanna remember. The scarlet Wayne’s backline from 2002 to 2006”
As mentioned earlier in the week, The Betoota Advocate has announced yet another ANZAC Day event at The Lord Betoota Hotel on Regent street. This comes after their second invitation to The Sydney Writer’s Festival in as many years.to avoid hanging out with the tragic literature creeps from the Sydney Writer’s Festival, we will be playing two up and drinking piss with you lot. Please join us for the second year in a row.

Working with the good people at The Lord Gladstone Hotel, our newspaper has been given full licence to do what we want with the place – this means pleasantly priced Betoota Bitter schooners and jugs all day long.

The Lord Betoota Hotel will be dishing up only the best Australian mixed grills all day long. Chops, steak, sausages, fried egg and cutlets (vegan options TBC). We will also be serving as ice cold heritage beers and an array of Betoota cocktails. Not to forget the ANZAC Day special of a ‘Gunfire Breakfast’ (Black coffee with Bundaberg rum) – only if you’re keen
– Two Up
The ANZAC day tradition will be well and truly alive at The Lord Betoota Hotel. Please throw cash around responsibly and respect the rules.
– The Best Of Australian Live Rock
Aussie rock covers all day and a bit of bagpipe action
Please join us, and Scott Minto, to commemorate this special day with friends. It will be firing up at 11am, which should give you plenty of time for a few schooners after the dawn service.
