TRY OR NO TRY? RED V LOSE BUT ALL PUNTERS WIN
Was it a try? Or was it no try? Does anyone even know?
At online bookmaker sportsbet.com.au we’re not sure, but here’s what we’re going to do.
Punters who backed the Dragons will get their money back as Sportsbet is refunding all head to head bets placed on the Red V to break their 14-year hoodoo in Melbourne, while those who took the Storm, and there were plenty, naturally get paid as winners.
The refund to punters is a cool $55,000.
“We’ve been scratching our heads all morning trying to figure out if it was a fair try or if the Dragons were robbed,” said sportsbet.com.au’s Ben Hawes.
“Either way, the Storm fans can enjoy the victory and their winnings while the Dragons fans pain can be eased with the return of their cold hard cash thanks to Sportsbet.”
“Perhaps the Dragons fans can use the money to hire a witch doctor? They could also bulk buy – they haven’t won in Canberra for just as long!”
