“I’d rather go to dinner with Kim Jong Un, than be English @sportsbetcomau #Pommel.”
That’s all it took for one lucky Pom sledger from Bunbury WA to win sportsbet.com.au’s #Pommel competition!
The bookie invited Aussie Cricket tragics to ‘Hit the Poms in The Crown Jewels’ by hurling their best sledges at the Mother Land in the lead up to the Ashes.
With sledging the Poms our national pastime, Australians had the chance to sledge the Barmy Army from the comfort of their couch and win $20,000 in the process.
Aussies from all walks of life were invited to post their best pot shot at Alistair Cook’s men through the Sportsbet Pommel website, Twitter or Facebook using the hashtag #pommel.
Sledgers where then provided with a ball that was fired at a giant cricket box shaped piñata draped with the English flag. If their ball destroyed the piñata, which this lucky Bunbury lady did, they would win the top prize of $10,000.
