The media team at Destination NSW did not cover themselves in glory, The SMH reports.
Soccer fans may have noticed the excitement around the arrival of Alessandro Del Piero to play for Sydney FC.
So it was a big press turnout for a photocall at Taronga Zoo including minister George Souris. Which made it awkward when they had to cancel it because nobody had remembered to invite del Piero, who was at training.
Sydney FC tells the SMH: We knew nothing about it.” Which is awkward.
