Rush for league tick­ets

Isis Town and Country - - Sport -

CROWDS formed early at the in­for­ma­tion cen­tre in Childers on Mon­day morn­ing in an­tic­i­pa­tion of rugby league tick­ets go­ing on sale.

Frus­trated lo­cals had to line up as the on­line web­site crashed due to many ea­ger fans rush­ing to get a slice of the 8000 tick­ets on of­fer.

One Cow­boys fan drove from Her­vey Bay to buy tick­ets as he couldn’t pur­chase them on­line.

Childers lo­cals are look­ing for­ward to the grand fi­nal re­match in Fe­bru­ary.

An­drew Spink from Gayndah pur­chased 10 tick­ets for his fam­ily.

“We are di­vided, five are go­ing for the Cow­boys and the oth­ers are go­ing for the Bron­cos,” Mr Spink said.

Speak­ing to the crowds while wait­ing, none had ever been to a grand fi­nal game and this was their chance to enjoy a game in the re­gion.

Salter Oval will host the game and lim­ited tick­ets are still avail­able.

From the crowd num­bers and tak­ing a poll from the long line, there are more supporters back­ing the Cow­boys for the win.
