Intrust will bring out the best of the best
THIS weekend marks a very significant event for rugby league fans and the whole of the North Burnett as the Intrust Super Cup arrives in town.
Everyone you speak with is thrilled with the opportunity to host the cup in the region.
An event of this scale is expected to bring in more than 1000 spectators with many already booked in for the big day.
On Saturday night a meet and greet will be held at the Mundubbera Bowls Club with footy legend from the Manly Sea Eagles, Steve Menzies, attending.
Steve Menzies is a legend of the game, managing to play 150 games of rugby league for Manly from 1993 till 1999.
He played for the Northern Eagles in 2000-2002 and then resumed his career with Manly from 2003-2008.
In 2009 he joined the Bradford Bulls in the European Super League.
Universally known as “Beaver”, Menzies is best known as the most prolific try scoring forward in rugby league.
His total of 180 tries is second in Australian first grade rugby league, behind former North Sydney and Manly player Ken Irvine, who scored 212 tries.
I follow the Brisbane Broncos so I’ll always be a bit biased when it comes to rugby league, but I reckon it’s great for the younger kids to see a footy player of Menzies’ calibre in Mundubbera.
I’ll see you all out on the field on Sunday, July 23.
