IN­TRUST SU­PER CUP HITS THE BUR­NETT THIS WEEK­END

RUGBY LEAGUE: The In­trust Su­per Cup is the big­gest game ever held in the North Bur­nett and it is set to put Mun­dub­bera on the map.

It is pre­dicted that more than 1000 peo­ple will at­tend the game held at Archer Park and club com­mit­tee mem­bers are ex­cited at the prospect of a game played in the town be­ing tele­vised on Chan­nel 9.

Com­mit­tee mem­ber Gavin Ford said the event was in plan­ning for quite some time and that last minute prepa­ra­tions were be­ing con­ducted.

“We’ve been hold­ing com­mit­tee meet­ings ev­ery week for the past six weeks in prepa­ra­tion for the In­trust, we’re all very ex­cited that it’s only two more days till it com­mences,” Ford said.

“We’re hop­ing that the field ar­range­ments will be good.

“I’m keep­ing a close eye on the field to en­sure it will be ready by the week­end, it had a chance of be­ing good and now it’s a wait­ing game.”

As part of Fri­day’s event, junior play­ers will have a chance to be part of a free train­ing ses­sion in Mun­dub­bera.

The Na­tional Rugby League De­vel­op­ment and the North Devils and East Tigers staff will be run­ning a free NRL coach­ing clinic at Archer Park.

The coach­ing clinic will start at 4.30pm and run un­til 5.45pm.

A meet and greet with the play­ers will also be held for those in Gayn­dah on Satur­day start­ing at 1pm at the sports grounds.

On Satur­day night a meet and greet will be held at the Mun­dub­bera Bowls Club start­ing at 6pm. Ev­ery­one is in­vited to at­tend.

Mun­dub­bera Tigers and

Gayn­dah Gla­di­a­tors will play in the cur­tain raiser at 11am on Sun­day, July 23.

“Both teams are the lead­ers of the com­pe­ti­tion with the Tigers win­ning the pre­mier­ship in 2016 so it should be a good game,” Ford said.

“The Gla­di­a­tors are cur­rently un­de­feated this sea­son and will be putting up a fight against the Tigers.”

Once the game is fin­ished, the junior teams will take to

the field from 1pm un­til the ac­tual game gets started about 1.40pm.

The North Devils and East Tigers will be tele­vised at 1.40pm on Chan­nel 9.

“Ad­mis­sion will cost $10 at the gate. Meet and greet tick­ets for Satur­day night can be bought at Bal­shaws Mitre 10, Gavin Ford’s Mo­biles and the Royal Ho­tel,” he said.

“Once the car park is full, no other cars are al­lowed on the field.”
