Game on for footy fans

Townsville Bulletin - - Front Page -

THE long wait for rugby league fans is fi­nally over.

The 2011 NRL sea­son kicks off tonight, fea­tur­ing the tra­di­tional Queens­land Derby block­buster be­tween the North Queens­land Cow­boys and the Bris­bane Bron­cos at Sun­corp Sta­dium. The Bron­cos have dom­i­nated their coun­try cousins in head-to-head clashes but a new-look Cow­boys team is hun­gry to turn the ta­bles tonight and get their new sea­son off to the best pos­si­ble start. Among the fans through­out Queens­land who will be on the edge of their seats from tonight’s kick-off will be 17-year-old Bron­cos fan Shae-Lee KennedyBrown, of Aitken­vale, and 16-year-old Cow­boys sup­porter Paige Kur­mass, of Kelso.
