CHILDERS TO HOST TRIPLE HEADER
GOLDEN Oldies rugby is probably the only competition in which an ageing winger can run 60 metres to score a try only for it to be disallowed because the ref “doesn’t like wingers”.
The good-spirited Wide Bay Golden Oldies Carnival attracted the greats of yesteryear when it was played at the Childers Showground for the first time on Saturday.
It was the 17th staging of the carnival but the first time it has been hosted by the Isis Sugar daddies and observers rated it a spectacular success.
“I thought they put on a wonderful carnival,” Bundaberg Rum Rucker Max Francis said.
“For the first one they’ve held I thought they excelled.”
Local stalwart Mike Cook blew the opening whistle while chief Sugardaddy Brett Phillips said all players had a great time.
“It’s great to be able to bring all those people to the area,” he said.
