A few days before the Rugby World Cup, which aired in Australia early Sunday morning, a cheeky Twitter feud broke out between the Qantas Twitter account and the Air New Zealand Twitter account.

Qantas is a major sponsor of the Aussie rugby team the Wallabies, and Air New Zealand of the All Blacks – the two teams competing for the title.

The banter between the two airlines saw a wager suggested where the losing team had to paint one of its planes in the other team’s colours.

However, potentially due to the hefty price tag that would be attached to such a venture, the team who came second – which devastatingly was the Wallabies – was to wear the other team’s uniforms onboard.
