Young supporters pass on good advice
THERE was cheering and tears of pride as a huge crowd welcomed the Cowboys back to Townsville Airport – but the wisest words of advice came from the youngest fans.
Chelsea Meehan, 8, was able to catch most of the game from her Kirwan home after her mum’s shouting from the living room woke her up.
“They can still win without JT,” she said.
“If they all work together they can become one full JT.
“If they stay true to themselves and don’t play dirty they can win.”
Brae Byron, 7 from Bushland Beach said he was sure his favourite team could make it to the NRL grand final.
Denaya Carney, 14, said she had backed the Cowboys all season. “No one counted them in, they all said Paramatta would win,” she said.
“We watched it from home, it was crazy, the house was mad. We beat Parramatta, we can beat anyone.”
The Schubert family from Mundingburra were proudly wearing home- made balloon hats in blue, white and yellow.
“We came down ( to the airport) last week to see them,” Cheryl Schubert said.
“We’re all confident they can make it through to the grand final. Every step they make will get them further.”
