A promise is a promise, and NSW Premier Dominic Perrottet made sure to honour his end of a bet with Queensland Premier Annastacia Palaszczuk over the series decider. The two had made a simple bet. If Queensland won, the Sydney Harbour Bridge would light up purple. Meanwhile, if NSW wins the match, Brisbane's Story Bridge will turn blue.
With Queensland’s rugby team lifting the winning trophy of the series in Brisbane, Palaszczuk was quick to remind Perrottet of their bet on Wednesday right after the match. Reluctantly, Perrottet acknowledged the results and promised to light up the Sydney Harbour Bridge in purple – but for a mere 35 minutes!
He even tweeted a picture of the bridge with the coloured lights on Friday (July 15, 2022), stating, “Hey Queensland, this is how you make maroon look good." Even though the lights turned blue soon after, several landmarks in Brisbane chose to remain purple that day.
