Grade rugby to visit

Chinchilla News - - SPORT -

CHIN­CHILLA rugby fans won’t need to head to Bris­bane for their Pre­mier Grade fix with Roma’s Bas­sett Park set to host Norths and Broth­ers on July 5.

The teams will make a spe­cial fly-in visit to put on an ac­tion-packed game for lo­cals.

Billed as Bris­bane Rugby – Goes Bush, the com­pe­ti­tion game will see a star-stud­ded line-up go­ing into bat­tle for what is ex­pected to be a mas­sive crowd of re­gional rugby sup­port­ers.

Brought to Roma through the as­sis­tance of the QRU, Broth­ers and Norths, the game will pro­vide fans with not only a big day of rugby ac­tion, but also a full day of en­ter­tain­ment with loads of lo­cal mu­sic, fan­tas­tic food and plenty of free fun for kids.

Broth­ers and Norths play­ers Luke Beauchamp and Bart Ritchie said both teams were ex­cited about the prospect of putting on a good show of rugby in Roma – a place many of their play­ers had never vis­ited.

“It’s al­ways in­ter­est­ing play­ing away games and this one in the bush would have to be the most away game we have ever had on our fix­ture list, but the whole team is re­ally look­ing for­ward to it,” Broth­ers player Beauchamp said.

Norths’ Ritchie agreed, adding it would also pro­vide a good op­por­tu­nity to meet some of the lo­cal Echidna play­ers com­ing up through the ranks.

The Roma Echid­nas will also take on USQ on the day.
