Game on for footy fans
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.
