CHILDERS TO HOST TRIPLE HEADER

Isis Town and Country - - Front Page -

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.
