AFL and league teams ready for sport show­down

Whitsunday Times - - SPORT -

A GROUP of Proser­pine State High School stu­dents are at­tempt­ing to set­tle an age-old ar­gu­ment.

The boys have or­gan­ised a face-off be­tween the re­gion’s un­der-16 AFL and rugby league teams in a bid to de­ter­mine which sport is bet­ter.

The Sea Ea­gles will de­fend their hon­our this week­end at the Whit­sun­day Sportspark while the ju­nior Brah­mans will get their chance the fol­low­ing week­end.

“The Brah­mans ap­proached us to play a game to find out who’s bet­ter,” Whit­sun­day Sea Ea­gles player Ter­rence Neil said.

“We’ve al­ways had petty ar­gu­ments so we thought why don’t we sort it out and find out which one is bet­ter.”

Ter­rence was con­fi­dent his AFL com­pa­tri­ots would get the job done this week­end, but wasn’t so sure ahead of the league en­counter next week.

“I reckon the Sea Ea­gles should take it,” he said.

“We’d never hear the end of it, but it would be the same if we beat them, we wouldn’t let them for­get it.”

This week­end’s match will take place at the Whit­sun­day Sportspark from 10am.

CROSS SPORT SHOW­DOWN: Proser­pine Ju­nior Brah­mans' Mitchell Whit­ton and Whit­sun­day Sea Ea­gles' Ter­rence Neil will at­tempt to set­tle the age old ar­gu­ment of which sport is bet­ter - AFL or rugby league.
