Bat­tler turns his gaze south­ward

The Sunday Telegraph (Sydney) - - REALESTATE -

The 2GB rugby league Con­tin­u­ous Call Team mem­ber Mark “Piggy” Rid­dell sur­prised his ra­dio col­leagues with a mid­week so­cial me­dia post sug­gest­ing he’s off to the south coast.

But he’s not leav­ing the team, telling them he won’t mind the es­ti­mated 90-minute trip up from Shell­har­bour. He cur­rently lives at Sil­verdale, which is 70km west of the sta­tion’s Pyr­mont HQ.

Rid­dell has told his col­leagues he doesn’t get at­tached to homes, hence the pend­ing list­ing of his re­cently com­pleted Wol­londilly-dis­trict home that sits on 4000sqm com­plete with a foot­ball field.

His boss Ray Hadley queried the de­ci­sion of the Bankstown-born bat­tler. Hadley briefly put his long-time home at Du­ral on the mar­ket in 2015, but then stayed put.

Rid­dell, the for­mer Eels, Dragons and Roosters goal­kick­ing hooker, won’t need to keep the flash ride-on mower that keeps the field look­ing good.

He and wife Karli will be swap­ping it for a home on 700sqm, about 400m from the wa­ter, in the town where the me­dian house price for a four-bed­room home is $902,000, ac­cord­ing to Core Logic, with the one pin­pointed as Rid­dell’s ac­qui­si­tion priced a tad higher.
