‘The novelty will wear off very quickly’: Peter V’landys’ cheeky swipe at AFL’s QLD move

“It’s like when you get those pesky relatives coming to move in with you when you’re renovating your house, it’s a novelty for a while but it runs out very quickly,” he told Ben Fordham.

“All these AFL people who have gone up there and trying to take the rugby league heartland … the novelty will wear off very quickly.”
