One of the Parramatta Eels’ newest fans is already looking for the exit after scoring a few last-minute tickets to the NRL Grand Final as Penrith look to capitalise on a first-half walkover.
In addition, the unnamed fan is keeping an eye out for the nearest bin to place his brand new Eels hat so he doesn’t have to suffer the indignity of getting an empty train home from Homebush to Bondi with it on.
However, our reporter has unconfirmed reports that the man might just buy a Panthers hat and return to his seat.
This is a developing story.
More to come.
