Juniors' Suncorp run-on big thrill
THE Wattles Junior Rugby League Football Club under-8 side played a game on Friday night at Suncorp Stadium during half-time in the NRL game between the Brisbane Broncos and Wests Tigers.
The players had the added excitement of meeting Buck, the Brisbane Broncos mascot, in the tunnel at Suncorp Stadium before they took the field in front of a crowd of 30,000.
All boys travelled down with family and friends and sat together as a team to watch the NRL game before 12 of the boys headed on to the hallowed turf to experience the thrill of playing in front of a large crowd.
The Wattles side played against a Central Coast team from Yeppoon and were able to meet with the opposition team and their support staff underneath the grandstand before they took to the field.
Both the Wattles and Central Coast teams played well and in great spirit, before heading back to their seats to watch the remainder of the NRL which ended up as a cliff hanger with the Tigers winning 16-14.
A club official said a great time was had by all and thanks must go to the Brisbane Broncos club for allowing the boys to enjoy such a great football experience.
