Thanks to a local NRL enthusiast, the Apex Oval rhino, which is part of the rhino sculpture trial, has received a new paint job in the colours of the South Sydney Rabbitohs ahead of their clash with the Penrith Panthers on May 23.
An avid South Sydney fan, Zac Etcell admitted that a mixture of "passion of Dubbo, Dulux and South Sydney" led him to painting the Rhino.
Like many other's around town, Mr Etcell is excited at prospect of watching an NRL game in Dubbo, especially one featuring his favoured team.
"I can't wait, from the minute I heard it was coming I was super excited and I emailed [Dubbo Regional Council] and Ash jumped in and got the ball rolling," he said.
"I also worked with another guy, Adam Gray from Gray's Painting he came in. He's a Souths fan too and he jumped on board and we are extremely proud."
The Rhino located on Macquarie Street in front of the rotunda has also been painted in South Sydney colours ahead of the game.
