Fans react to Bunnings Warehouse airing AFL-themed ads during NRL coverage on Fox League

The NRL is, of course, sponsored by Bunnings competitor, Home Timber and Hardware, while Bunnings sponsors the AFL.

But fans still took to social media bemused over the weekend that Bunnings would buy ad space during a rugby league match using AFL content that would gain little to zero traction in the northern states.
