Hit TV show films Warwick scene

MORE eyes were on the sideline than on the rugby union field on Saturday, when the Channel 9 film crew for Farmer Wants A Wife shot scenes for the upcoming season.

While farmer Will Munsie, a player for the Goondiwindi B grade union team, bought with him an entourage of camera crewmen, director, three beautiful young girls and his mother and sister when he fronted the Kingaroy side.

Onlookers watched with interest as the three girls were directed to introduce themselves to Farmer Will’s mother and sister.

Two Goondiwindi supporters, Jessica Green and Margot Stirling, had travelled to Warwick to cheer on their home team.

The pair said it was amusing to watch behind-the-scene action for the filming of the show.

“I thought it was hilarious – they took three or four takes to film the part where the three girls meet Will’s mum and sister,” Miss Green said.

“It makes you realise how much work goes into it.”

Miss Stirling agreed and said she looked forward to watching the show when it aired later this year.

“We didn’t try to get on television, but I think we might have been in the background at one stage,” she laughed.

“I’ll have to watch and see.”

While the two spectators weren’t sure which of the three girls Farmer Will would choose, they said they would wait with interest to find out.

In other Farmer Wants A Wife news, there are reports a second Warwick girl has entered the television show to find love.

No word yet on how the contestant has gone, but we will report as soon as an update reaches our ears.
