Pig the Dugong Tips Maroons for State of Origin Win

Ahead of Game 2 of the State of Origin series on November 11, a dugong at a Sydney aquarium tipped the Queensland Maroons to win.

In footage released by SEA LIFE Sydney Aquarium, two baskets representing the Maroons and the New South Wales Blues were placed in a pool with “local treasure” Pig the dugong. Pig didn’t wait long to make a decision.

“Being a Dugong, they are generally found up around Queensland and on the Great Barrier Reef. He was found as a rescue up there, so that’s where his story began and I believe that may have swayed his decision slightly," a SEA LIFE spokesperson said.

“We’ll just have to wait and see just how accurate his fortune-telling skills are.” Credit: SEA LIFE Sydney Aquarium via Storyful
