A Waterloo man who’s entire house, car and wardrobe shares the same colours ashis beloved rugby league club, has not felt this excited in years.

In fact, the 45-year old airport baggage handler, Billy Botany, has even gone as far as painting his face red and green today.

This follows the breaking news that most succesful rugby league coach in the history of the game has confirmed he will return to the helm at the South Sydney Rabbitohs from next season.

Wayne Bennett has confirmed to the media this morning, that from 2025, he will be once again departing from Queensland and making his back to Redfern on a three year deal.

This news has resulted in cheers right across South Sydney and the club’s other fanbase that exists in Western Queensland for some reason.

“We are back baby” cheers Billy Botany, as he takes a day off work to paint his face and abuse people on social media about the fact that Souths will likely win three more premierships now that Wayne Bennett has decided to push his retirement back to the age of 77.

“Well, we are back in like 6 months time”

It is hoped by the Rabbitohs board, and their now emotionally tortured fanbase, that Wayne Bennett will be able to plug the power vacuum left by Wayne Bennett.

Bennett coached South Sydney between 2019-2021, leaving to coach the Redcliffe Dolphins in their inaugural season in 2023 – which in turn saw the Bunnies stuck contending with a roaring black hole of leadership that the successor Jason Demetriou struggled to fill.

So far this season, the club has bounced around like a headless chook, leaving many of their fans heartbroken over the team’s inability to utilise the generational talent on offer.

The Rabbitohs announced Demetriou’s termination in a statement, saying that a “less-than-satisfactory series of results over the 2023 and 2024 seasons” had led to the mid-season decision to go in a “new direction with its coaching”.

Souths next NRL match is against the Eels on Saturday, another coachless club that had their eyes set on Wayne Bennett as well.

“Suck shit Eels” says Billy, instantly forgetting the fact that glass house he lives in as a Souths fan whose club has lost 6 in a row this year.
